Keller Williams Greater Downtown donates to Woodmore Elementary

Close to 100 local real estate agents were training at the Keller Williams Greater Downtown office during the time of the 2016 Woodmore bus tragedy. After deciding to donate money to the school, the agents raised $11,000.

During the training event, a group of agents auctioned a teddy bear with the intent of donating the proceeds to Woodmore Elementary. The bear sold for $500. Soon, every other participant contributed his or her previous bid, raising nearly $8,000 in minutes.

Agents from Keller Williams continued to raise money throughout the year. Contributions came from across Tennessee and as far away as Anchorage, Alaska.

Team Leader Nathan Brown recently delivered the check to Principal Dionne Upton and Assistant Principal Talley Caldwell at Woodmore Elementary, where the money will be contributed to the Support, Create, Enrich Fund. The fund was launched in 2016 after the accident.

“Part of the mission of Keller Williams is to build ‘lives worth living’ and ‘legacies worth leaving,’” says Brown. “Our agents at Keller Williams Greater Downtown strive to leave a legacy of giving in their community by making it a priority to give back.”
