Keller Williams Realty Danville is proud to support the Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area as our RED DAY recipient for 2015.
RED DAY (Renew, Energize and Donate) is an initiative dedicated to celebrating Keller Williams Realty’s year-round commitment to improving our local communities. Each year, on the second Thursday in May (May 14, 2015), tens of thousands of Keller Williams Realty associates from across the World participate in a wide range of projects, devoting our time to renewing and energizing aspects of the neighborhoods in which we serve.
Our vision for this day is that all Keller Williams associates will engage in a coordinated effort to improve their local community. Activities run the gamut, including rehabbing a house, cleaning up a local trail, providing food for the homeless or any service related activity needed in our community.
In our community, the Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area in Danville (DSCBA) consists of a group of caring individuals, educators, therapists and involved community members whose passion and commitment is to serve families who have members born with Down Syndrome.
The DSCBA achieves this through education, advocacy, support groups for the entire family and developmental based classes for babies, children, teens and adults. Their goal is to enrich the child and adults lives through pre-academic, academic, language skills and social/behavioral interaction, ultimately preparing them for community integration as a valuable participant and contributor.
“We are so grateful to have the help of Keller Williams on RED DAY. It is vital for a non- profit organization such as ours to have the community support which allows us to continuously provide services to our members.” says Marianne Iversen, Director of Programs at the Down Syndrome Connection of the Bay Area.
“RED DAY is an entrenched part of Keller Williams Realty’s culture and displays the extraordinary effect a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team for the greater good of everyone,” said Team Leader Kristin White. “RED DAY has made such an impact on each of us personally - it feels so great to give back to the community we know and love.” kw
