  Keller Williams introduced RED Day in 2009 as a way to give back and have a positive impact on communities. The second Thursday of May is now known as RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate. This annual day of service was designed for Keller Williams Agents to give back to the community by rebuilding homes, refurbishing local parks, giving to local food shelters, hosting blood drives, beautifying the streets, and so much more.   This year was another banner year for our office's commitment to RED Day.  Using our contacts in the local community, White Plains Hospital identified families with specific needs and we split into teams to help them out.  One team helped a young girl battling leukemia by raising money and taking her and her siblings shopping for home essentials...
