I am proud to be a Keller Williams Agent for many reasons but KW’s commitment to bettering and helping the community, tops the list. KW has a year-round commitment to improving local communities; however, one day a year, KW agents set aside an entire day, taking off work and committing their time and resources wholly to re-energize the communities and neighborhoods where they serve–that day is RED Day and this year is it May 10, 2018.
The projects for RED Day run the gamut with everything from rebuilding homes to volunteering at local food banks and each market center chooses their focus based on the needs of the community where they live. The goal of the RED DAY movement is to see a need within our communities, to find a way to meet the need then, the most important part, to get it done. It’s not enough to host benefits and take donations. So, as with all things KW, we put our actions where our ambitions are. Assisting in ensuring that the need is met, that’s where you come in.
There are approximately 20 people per minute in the U.S. who are physically abused by an intimate partner. During 1 year that equates to more than 10 million women/men. So, with this growing epidemic of family violence, we decided to devote our resources, time and dedication to Women in Need Organization of Texas. WIN is the first line of defense against family violence. They provide counseling, crisis intervention, job training and assist with job and relocation services. If you have ever been a victim or if someone you know has been a victim you know that information is what they are looking for, safety is what they are looking for, solutions with resources to back it up is what they are looking for. WIN, with 26 years of experience of service to adult victims of family violence and their children, provides all of these. Overall,the goal is to create a society that no longer tolerates abuse of power through violence. As with all kinds of reformation and renewal, the change starts where you live –KW wants to help.
