We’re a firm believer that “the greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” On May 9 we joined Keller Williams agents for RED Day to beautify the communities we live and work in. Our teams committed their time to Edgewood Elementary School, Victor’s Vittles, and Chesapeake Therapeutic Riding (CTR).

Senior Mortgage Banker, Brandon Martinez shared his love for RED Day, “I like RED Day because it is bigger than any one group, person, or entity. It’s a day where you get to simply help someone in their life. The beauty of the day is watching the interaction with each other as we are working to make things better than it was the day before.” Alongside Keller Williams Legacy and Processor Jamie Russell, Martinez and RED Day volunteers updated Edgewood Elementary School’s interior while hosting Field Day for the school children.

Branch Manager, Jeff Dobrzykowski, and Business Development Manager, Billy Apostolou volunteered with Keller Williams Gateway at Victor’s Vittles, a local food pantry. Volunteers mulched the exterior, painted, organized and stocked the pantry with donated goods. Billy shared his favorite part of RED Day: “Turning off the phones and giving back to the community for a day. Being part of something bigger than myself.”

Chesapeake Therapeutic Riding (CTR) strives to “encourage healing and celebrate life with individuals and groups whose minds, bodies and spirits will benefit from the transformative connection between people and horses.” Corey Glowacki (Senior Mortgage Banker), Kevin Parlett (Mortgage Banker), and Anna Tommasello (Marketing Coordinator) arrived at 7:30am with Keller Williams American Premier Realty volunteers to improve the grounds at CTR. The crews cleaned and insulated the stables, updated the exteriors, and painted the horse stalls.
