For years, western Massachusetts employees of Keller Williams Realty have set aside “Red Day” for a day of community service.
Wearing their traditional “Red Day” shirts, these Keller Williams employees completely renovated the Enfield home of Valerie Bilodeau, a Springfield teacher whose husband suddenly passed last month, the week they moved in.
“My husband had planned on doing a lot of this work himself. Friends, family and now Keller William’s showing up on Red Day. Doing so much work on the house, it’s so overwhelming appreciated, I can’t say enough,” said Bilodeau.
Valerie’s daughter Christina Marquis is a Keller Williams employee. She knew the total renovation, inside and out, would make an ideal “Red Day” gift for her mom, who had gone through so much recently.
“The whole thing is just unbelievable,” said Christina Marquis.
And there’s deep satisfaction from helping others in such a tangible way.
Erica Nunley of Keller Williams Realty told 22News, “There’s huge pride, right? When you’re able to help someone, just help make it better, right?”
Helping one of their own just happened to fall on Keller Williams’ tenth annual Red Day and just three days before Mother’s Day.
