A sea of red ascended on May 10 as close to 200 local real estate agents - all wearing red shirts – served at the Chambliss Center for Children during RED Day, Keller Williams’ nationwide day of community service. Agents completed projects ranging from putting down playground mulch, to painting shelves, to pressure washing the pool to prepare the local center for its array of summer activities.

The “RED” in RED Day stands for “Renew, Energize, Donate.” Each year, on the second Thursday of May, the entire company closes their offices for a day of service.

“Contributing to my community is an important part of my life and my business,” says Mark Hite, a top-producing agent in the city and board member at Chambliss Center. “I enjoy working for a company and alongside other agents who value that service, as well.”

Locally, Keller Williams has partnered with Chambliss Center for more than five years. Keller Williams associates have donated time and money to help clean and prepare the child care center for its summer activities.

In addition, agents this year worked to finish two on-site duplexes for transitional housing as students move out of the foster care system. There are 10 transitional housing units in the southeast region, all of which are provided locally by Chambliss Center.

Many local sponsors joined Keller Williams in the day of service including Jody Millard Pest Control, who grilled and served lunch to the team of volunteers. Maryann Azambuja of Choice Home Warranty, RCS Construction and Jeremy Ames of First Title Insurance provided breakfast.
