Keller Williams recently celebrated RED DAY, a yearly tradition whereby all employees put business aside and commit to giving their time to helping others. Introduced in 2009, RED DAY – which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate – is Keller Williams Realty’s annual day of service.
Each year in early May, associates spend the day assisting non-profit organizations in their communities. This year the event in the West Island was organized by Amanda Fincken, Director First Impressions, in conjunction with Volunteer West Island’s Corporate Volunteer Recruitment Program. Teams of energetic Keller Williams employees turned out to assist Moisson Montréal where their efforts were were warmly welcomed by Moisson’s staff members and Volunteer Coordinator, Marc-André Roy, who actively coordinated the activity with VWI.
“We had a great time volunteering at Moisson Montreal”, stated Ms Fincken. “It was fun to work together…and help out the community. It was also nice to learn a bit about the background of Moisson Montreal and interesting to see how many volunteers help out daily… It’s amazing how big an impact we could make as a team once we all worked together; it just goes to show you that if every person volunteered any of their time throughout the year how much more of an impact we could make on many people’s lives.
Moisson Montéeal is the largest foodbank in Canada, supplying other food banks, families, and idividuals with much-needed assisatnce. Groups of volunteers sort donations, organize inventory, assemble food packages, and distribute them among clients on a daily basis to keep this essential community service running. The many willing hands of the Keller Williams employees helped Moisson Montreal make a difference in the communities they serve!
