4th annual RED Day set to lend helping hands in Marysville, Arlington

MARYSVILLE — Keller Williams Realty associates will be taking the day off on Thursday, May 10, but it will hardly be a day of rest.

Associates with the Keller Williams Marysville 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, Keller Williams Marysville has chosen to spend the day cleaning up the yard at Cocoon House in Arlington and Comeford Park in Marysville.

Keller Williams Marysville associates will be revitalizing both locations' appearance with fresh plants, flowers and a good landscape trimming.

"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 Ivy Jo Houghton. "Last year, we revitalized the Marysville Boys and Girls Club. 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."

During RED Day 2011, more than 40,000 Keller Williams associates participated in activities ranging from food and blood drives to cleaning up trash in public parks, doing yard work for neighbors in need and revamping gardens at nursing homes, totaling more than 190,000 hours of service and making RED Day one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.
