CULLMAN - Around 40 volunteers from Keller Williams Realty took a break from the real estate business Thursday to go work on, what else, houses.  For its part in the Keller Williams company annual RED Day program, the staff from the Cullman office visited three houses belonging to the local nonprofit Restoring Women Outreach to clean, refurbish and upgrade the facilities that house women in addiction recovery.

Broker Karon Tubbs explained, “Every office in the world at Keller Williams Realty closes today, and we do a community project.  Today we’ve chosen to work on three different homes that are homes for women that are, maybe, coming out of addiction. They help them find jobs.  It’s a nonprofit; it’s a great organization!

“We have pressure washed, we have cleaned windows, we have shampooed carpets, replaced tile in the bathroom, replaced hinges on cabinets, just whatever they told us needed to be done.  It’s a great day! It’s a fun day!”

According to Keller Williams, RED stands for “Renew, Energize, and Donate.”  The event takes place on the second Thursday of each May, and local committees choose charitable projects in which to participate.  

Said Tubbs, “We just have the best agents in the world!  You know, who would just give a whole day in the middle of the week, so to speak, to help out somebody?  And we do this every year on this day. And we really enjoy it.”
