Keller Williams Group associates of Limerick may be taking the day off on Thursday, May 8, but it will hardly be a day of rest. As many as 70 associates with Keller Williams Realty Group-Limerick have chosen to “Give Where They Live” as part of RED Day, the company’s annual day of service, dedicated to renewing, energizing, and donating to their local communities.
As part of the RED Day effort, Keller Williams Realty Group-Limerick staff have chosen to spend the day in Boyertown, serving Boyertown Area Multi-Service, Inc., Daniel B. Boyertown Center YMCA, Boyertown Rotary Club, Boyertown Lions Club, the Colebrookdale Railroad Preservation Trust, Borough of Boyertown, and Building a Better Boyertown throughout the Borough of Boyertown. Volunteers will be busy with tasks throughout the Borough. The grateful recipients are providing lunch to the volunteers to say thank you for their gift of time and work.
“It is a beautiful thing that not only do our own residents care about Boyertown, but so do those who reside in surrounding areas. We appreciate the efforts of all of the volunteers who are willing to work to better our community,” says Mayor Marianne Deery.
BBB will have volunteer groups Good Samaritans painting the office, mulching the Community Walkway, sweeping the engraved bricks, and staining park benches. Buckwalter Landscape Services Inc., a BBB member has agreed to donate the mulch at no cost. Another ten sets of helping hands will provide service to the Multi-Service by completing spring cleaning in the kitchen and aboard the bus. Six more volunteers will work outdoors with the Boyertown Lions Club and the Colebrookdale Railroad Preservation Trust to bedeck the newly restored historic Boyertown Crane. The Daniel B. Boyer YMCA will guide ten other Keller Williams staff members as they repaint the Boyertown Community Pool.
The largest team of volunteers will spend their day at the Boyertown Community Park, 417 Madison Street Boyertown. This large group will paint and replace the wood of six original benches, complete spring clean up of sticks, leaves, etc; assist with the maintenance of the park’s walking trail, and evaluate the maintenance needs of the benches donated by Lions and Rotary Clubs.
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. For more information about RED Day, visit (www.kw.com/redday.)
