Keller Williams associates took the day off on Thursday, May 8, 2014, but it was hardly a day of rest. Associates with the Pasadena Market Center have chosen to “Give Where They Live” as part of RED Day, one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.

Short for “Renew, Energize and Donate,” RED Day was created to unite Keller Williams Realty offices and associates in an international day of service.

As part of the RED Day effort, Pasadena Market Center chose to spend the day with Harambee Ministries and School. Associates from KW Pasadena did a variety of projects around the Harambee campus including painting, landscaping the vast gardens and removing thirty years of “stuff”.

While the painting and sprucing was in progress, live entertainment was provided by Phineas and Ferb’s own Dan Povenmire. We also had bouncy houses provided by VK Jumpers. In the afternoon, we had the assistance of Girl Scout Troop 1191, and an afternoon snack provided by Coolhaus ice cream. The Festivities were capped off with a Proclamation presented by Mayor Bill Bogaard, commemorating the community service that Keller Williams Pasadena Market Center has given the city of Pasadena.

“This event is an entrenched part of Keller Williams Realty’s culture and displays the extraordinary effect a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team for the greater good of everyone,” said Team Leader Brock Worthen. “Last year, we worked with Villa Esperanza, an amazing non-profit organization devoted to the care and education of a diverse disabled population of children, adults, and seniors. We painted and spruced up the activity center, had a great big lunch, and had professional entertainers sing, play music and perform magic tricks for the Villa Esperanza clients. We can’t tell you what an impact it made on each of us personally it felt so great to give back to the community we know and love.”

Since the first RED Day in 2009, Keller Williams associates have given almost a half million hours of community service through activities ranging from food and blood drives to cleaning up trash in public parks, revamping gardens at nursing homes and rebuilding homes and schools for community members in need. To this day, it is one of the largest events in the real estate industry.
