This past Thursday was Keller William’s annual RED Day and we were so glad to participate.
RED Day stands for Renew, Energize and Donate and is an annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, Keller Williams realtors and staff work together to help out a local charity.
The Lelansky Garvey team really enjoys taking part in this annual event because it allows us to give back to our local community. This year the chosen charity was “Furniture Friends”. Furniture Friends is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides donated furniture to people in need throughout Greater Portland.
Furniture Friends partners with over 100 local social service providers to identify people in need who lack resources to purchase furniture on their own. Following an in-home assessment the organization welcomes clients into their warehouse to select their furniture from their inventory. Alternatively, volunteer teams deliver furniture to clients without access to transportation. The organization relies on donations of gently used furniture to stock their warehouse.
On Thursday, Evan and Dan along with their co-workers at Keller Williams, provided some heavy lifting at the Furniture Friends warehouse. They picked up furniture donated by individuals as well as loaded up trucks and delivered items to the recipients. It was a full day of hard work for a great cause.
