Abigail Herrera, KW Landmark, & City Harvest to Lend a Hand in Forest Hills!!!

Keller Williams Realty Landmark associates may be taking the day off on Thursday, May 10, 2012, but it will hardly be a day of rest. Abigail Herrera and her Associates at the KW Landmark Office in Bayside have chosen to “Give Where They Live” as part of RED Day, one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.

Short for “Renew, Energize and Donate,” RED Day was created to unite Keller Williams Realty offices and associates in an international day of service.

As part of her RED Day effort, Abigail Herrera has chosen to spend the day collecting food for the City Harvest “Feed the Kids Campaign” by dropping off donation bags at 100 Forest Hills homes and picking them up on RED Day (Thursday, May 10th). Neighbors interested in participating can contact Abigail directly at: abigailSELLS@kw.com or 718-475-2742       to get involved.

Held from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, the “Feed the Kids” campaign helps provide much-needed food for New York City’s children through the summer months, when access to school meals may be limited. More than 1.5 million New Yorkers currently live in poverty, with 25% of New York City children living in food insecure homes. Last year our drive raised more than 700 pounds of kid-friendly food, which City Harvest delivered to nearly 600 emergency food programs in all five boroughs to help feed children and their families throughout the summer.

“This event is an entrenched part of Keller Williams Realty Landmark’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, Allison Gambone.  “Last year, we raised 700 pounds of food and this year we are looking to raise DOUBLE that amount. We can’t tell you what an impact it made on each of us personally-it felt so great to give back to the community we know and love.”

During RED Day 2011, over 40,000 Keller Williams associates participated in activities ranging from food and blood drives to cleaning up trash in public parks, doing yard work for neighbors in need or revamping gardens at nursing homes totaling more than 190,000 hours of service making RED Day one of the biggest events in the real estate industry.

The Keller Williams Realty Landmark Office, located at 32-55 Francis Lewis Blvd is a full service real estate firm with 177 sales associates.
