Keller Williams-McLean/Great Falls Red Day Puts
SHARE food pantry coffers in the Black!
Keller Williams McLean/Great Falls participated in the RED day celebrations in May by collecting staples to fill the coffers of SHARE of McLean. This year the collections were held outside the local Giant grocery in McLean on May 12th and the Safeway store in Great Falls on May 14th. RED in Keller Williams Realty lingo stands for: Renew, Energize and Donate. It is an initiative dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams Realty’s year-round commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, during the second week of May, tens of thousands of KW associates from across the United States and Canada come together to give their time to renew, energize and donate locally where they live and work.
RED day for the Keller Williams – McLean/Great Falls office focused on securing donations for and raising awareness for SHARE, Inc. SHARE is an all-volunteer non-profit organization which is celebrating its 41st year of operations this year. SHARE is dedicated to assisting the less fortunate in McLean, Great Falls, Falls Church and surrounding communities. It is a designated Community Based Organization, created to serve people in times of personal and family emergencies.
The food pantry in 2010 had nearly 2,400 family visits; distributing just under 7,000 bags of groceries and other necessity items. In the spring and summer, the food bank is often severely depleted, thus SHARE has come to depend on the Keller Williams – McLean/Great Falls Realtor community to collect stapes to fill the shelves on RED day. Numerous truck loads were dispatched from the Giant in McLean and the Safeway in Great Falls filled with staples and food stuffs for SHARE to distribute to those in need.
