Keller Williams Gives Back at RED Day Event

More than 70 Keller Williams Realty associates from three area offices spent May 13 volunteering at The Arrow Retreat Center in Porter, TX. The group from Keller Williams Realty Northeast, The Woodlands and Professionals offices power washed cabins, painted buildings and prayer benches, and sealed the wooden pier over a fish pond - all to get the retreat for foster children and their families ready for the summer.

The effort was part of the RED (renew, energize and donate) Day initiative by Keller Williams Realty International. RED Day was an opportunity for Keller Williams associates across the country to improve their local communities through participating in service projects.

The Arrow Retreat Center is operated by Arrow Child & Family Ministries. The Christian organization helps place children in foster care and strengthen their bonds with their foster families. Arrow was founded in 1992 in Austin, TX, by a former foster child Mark Tennant.

Tennant selected the name based on his own experience as a foster child. His foster parents would repeat a Bible verse: "Children are a gift of the Lord, like arrows in the hand of a warrior." Those words became the scripture foundation of The Arrow Project that was later re-named Arrow Child & Family Ministries.

"We were looking for something closer to home," says Keller Williams Realty Northeast Senior Team Leader Lisa Dempsey about how the RED Day charity was selected. "It was a perfect fit because it is between two of our offices (Northeast and The Woodlands). When we heard it was for families and children, everyone wanted to give back.
