RED Day May 10th, 2018 –

The second Thursday of May marks the annual day of service for the largest real estate franchise in North America. Known as RED Day (Renew, Energize and Donate), this celebration of community is part of our KW culture. It is a day where our associates and market centers put their lives and businesses on hold to make an impact on the cities and towns we live in.

We’re proud to report that KW South Florida Region once again had an incredible showing by its associates. Every office took part in a project and more than  1,000 agents were involved. Some of the highlights within the Region include:

  • Belleair had 54 participants who gave their time and energy back to their local community.
  • Boca East gathered 100 volunteers for their local RED Day event.
  • Coral Springs joined with Plantation and Aventura for the “Walk-A-Thon of Love” benefiting Marjory Stoneman Douglas. More than 150 volunteers participated in the event.
  • Thirty Key West agents and guests assisted Habitat for Humanity with three homes in Big Pine Key that were severely damaged by Hurricane Irma.
  • Legacy Weston had 40 agents who painted the hallways and passed out ice cream to service recipients at the Broward Outreach Center.
  • Marco Island hosted 10 special needs children at their local park/water splash pad. Toys, games, pizza, and beverages were all part of the fun. Participants included five therapists and 10 children ranging from 1 year to 11 years old.
  • Miami Beach celebrated RED DAY working at the Miami Children’s Initiative with the Little Lighthouse Foundation. Miami Children’s Initiative has been developed similar to the Harlem Children’s Zone evidenced-based cradle to career model, with prominent features such as clearly delineated geographical zones and rates of ‘penetration’ into communities through the use of community-based networks. Thiry KW Miami Beach agents and leadership spent the day painting doors for residents in the community and painting affirmations, including many from BOLD in the kid zones. The MCI community is within Liberty City, one of the poorest and dangerous neighborhoods in Miami but MCI is determined to make a difference for the children in their program.
  • Miami Northeast had 30 agents participate in a community blood drive and beautifying the garden of an elementary school in their community. The school garden was adopted as a project last year and agents returned this year to continue building on last year’s work.
  • Palm Beach East had 30 volunteers who took part in helping the needy in their community.
  • Palm Beaches fixed up the playground & facilities, including building new sandboxes and benches, for a local preschool. Throughout the day, 83 agents stopped by to lend a hand and volunteer.
  • Pembroke Pines/Miramar hosted 80 participants who volunteered at Feeding South Florida where they inspected, sorted and packaged 30,000 pounds of food that will feed more than 25,000 people.
  • Port St. Lucie rallied 50 participants who cleaned streets and helped restore a local habitat.
  • Punta Gorda brought together 50 participants who raised money to buy and deliver school supplies to 478 classrooms in Charlotte County elementary schools.
  • Vero Beach had 50 volunteers who helped the American Legion Post 181 beautify their facility with new paint and landscaping.
  • Treasure Coast reported 45 volunteers that helped CAREBAG to provide food, clothing and life’s necessities to the homeless.

Thanks again to all that contributed their time and energy to give back to their local communities!
