Imagine a day without coffee . . .
Ok – maybe that’s not too hard.
But what about a day without coffee, diapers, toothpaste, soap, sugar, laundry detergent, toilet paper and a host of other “basics”?!
Please join The Belt Team and Keller Williams McLean on Thursday as we celebrate KELLER WILLIAMS RED DAY by collecting food & toiletries to replenish the shelves at SHARE of McLean.
RED Day (Renew, Energize and Donate) is a worldwide Keller Williams Realty service initiative. Thousands of Keller Williams Realtors and staff members will be donating their time, talent & treasure on May 8th in an effort to help our local communities. You see, at Keller Williams, it’s our motto to “give where we live.” And at The Belt Team – our Mission Statement is “Changing Lives for the Better” – and that doesn’t just apply to real estate!
Our local McLean office will participate in a drive to benefit SHARE of McLean. SHARE was established in 1969 by a coalition of religious and civic institutions to meet the emergency needs of the less fortunate in McLean, Great Falls, Pimmit Hills and surrounding areas. . And yes – they DO exist in our area. Many of them work 2, 3 & more jobs to survive – jobs that often serve the more affluent residents in our area. Share also serves a large number of seniors who just can’t meet their own needs. Last year they served over 2,500 families (more than 7,500 people).
Share is sustained by donations of food, clothing, furniture and funds, and is administered by ALL volunteers. Agents from our McLean/Great Falls Keller Williams office (including members of The Belt Team) will be outside the McLean Giant (all day!) & Great Falls Safeway (4-7PM). We will be collecting groceries and donations on behalf of SHARE. Look for our tent!
If you would like to participate in this effort, here’s the list of items that SHARE is particularly in need of:
- Grape or strawberry jelly or jam
- White sugar
- White rice
- Ground coffee
- Black tea
- Mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup
- Cooking oil
- Chunky chicken soups (only this kind)
- 100% juice
- Bars of soap
- Laundry detergent
- Tuna fish
- Baby wipes
Thanks in advance for your support!
