On May 14, several Keller Williams Associates and family members joined us for their Annual RED Day Celebration. RED stands for Renew, Energize and Donate. The Keller Williams Associates all over the world choose to “Give Where They Live” as part of this annual day of service each May.
Each year all the Keller Williams’ offices reach out to local organizations and/or individuals to find a project or projects within their community to assist, creating a massive one-day outreach of volunteering and impact in our local neighborhoods. Major thanks to Stacy McVey for making the contact between us and The Keller Williams Associates.
RED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things to help others. RED Day just happens to be a one-day expression of the constant state of the Keller Williams culture and displays the amazing impact a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team for the greater good of everyone.
As you can see in the photos below, the group assisted with landscaping, pre-packing bags, and serving clients. Thank you, Keller Williams Associates.

Update from Cheryl VanDeusen
Eight eager volunteers wore masks and brought their own tools last Thursday to weed, spread mulch, add soil and straighten irrigation lines in anticipation of planting the beds in the middle of May.
It felt good to be in the sunshine and pull tall weeds even while staying 6 feet away from each other. Our married volunteers come in handy when we need to do a two-person task in these infectious times!
Loren has pepper and tomato plants growing in our growing center in the basement and we have cabbage plants waiting in our small greenhouse. We are also on the lookout for collard plants at local nurseries.
We have a lot of donated seeds from our fellow master gardeners in the Pickaway County Master Gardener Volunteer organization where Loren and I do our OSU extension volunteering. We will use them and see how our clients at Heart to Heart like some different vegetables- last year they loved the okra – who knew!! Okra will be grown again this year!
Thanks to our volunteers that day and to all of you who will be helping someway in the future.
