RED Day 2018!

by Michelle Reedy and Alan Swider

 

 

 

Another successful RED Day for the R & S Home Team! 

RED Day, which stands for RenewEnergize and Donate, is our annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, we celebrate RED Day as a part of our legacy worth leaving. Making a difference in the lives of others and bettering the communities that we serve lies at the heart of the Keller Williams culture. This observance defines who we are and is a natural extension of our commitment to the highest level of professional customer service. Over time, a growing number of our family members and friends continue to participate in this extraordinary event. It embodies the generous spirit and commitment associates have to “giving back" to the cities and towns they live and work in.

Thursday, May 10th The R & S Home Team participated in RED Day by collecting canned goods for the Food Drive at Kings Food Market in Bedminster, NJ. The Food Drive benefited the Chester/Mendham Food Pantry and the Food Bank Network of Somerset County... and Keller Williams ended up raising over $1,800 dollars!!

Help Curb Hunger in Somerset County!

by Michelle Reedy and Alan Swider

Help Curb Hunger in Somerset County! Although the majority of us in Somerset County are fortunate to not have to worry about food insecurity, there are still many people that go to bed hungry every night. Help support everyone in our communities by supporting the 23rd Annual Curbing Hunger Month Food Drive this June.

 

During the summer months, food supplies are traditionally low. All donations to the Curbing Hunger Food Drive will benefit local organizations throughout the county to help them continue their vital mission during these warmer months. Please fill the orange plastic bags that were distributed on your recycling container in May with non-perishable food items. No longer have the bag? No problem! Simply fill a plastic grocery bag! Then place it on your curb now through June 30th during your regularly scheduled recycling collection day to be picked up. It’s that easy! You can also drop off goods at the Courier News’s food collection point located at 92 East Main Street, Somerville.

 

Much needed items include:

  • Parmalat milk

  • Peanut butter and jelly

  • Canned meat and fish

  • Canned tomato sauce

  • Canned fruits and vegetables

  • “Meals-in-a-can” (i.e. meaty soups, stews, and pasta)

*Please note that perishables and food in glass containers cannot be accepted.

 

You can also make an online contribution to the drive by clicking HERE. You can select and purchase food to donate at this site. All items purchased will be delivered to local food bank by Amp Your Good.

 

Although the drive is held in June, you can contribute throughout the year! Curbside donations are still accepted during any of your recycling collection days beyond June. You can also bring donations to the Somerset County Recycling Center (40 Polhemus Lane, Bridgewater) during the first Saturday of every month.

 

Help make Somerset County a great place to live for everyone in our communities by supporting the 23rd Annual Curbing Hunger Month Food Drive!
