The Season of Giving

Local

This time of the year, the word GIVING starts making its way into everyday conversations. It’s the time of year that we focus on the needs of others and we strive to help better the lives of those around us through little actions like “Pay it Forward” or grander gestures like volunteering our time and/or hosting a food drive. Together, all of these help those in need and make an impact and a difference in the lives of those around us.

The EJ Johnson Group is very proud to be a member of Keller Williams Market Pro Realty as the Keller Williams ‘family’ lives by the motto: “To build careers worth having, businesses worth owning, lives worth living, experiences worth giving and legacies worth leaving.” Charity is the heart of Keller Williams’ culture in action. The time of giving is all year round, in many different ways.

Every year, on the 2nd Thursday in May, tens of thousands of Keller Williams associates participate in RED Day, Renew, Energize and Donate, through a wide range of community projects- dedicating their time to renewing and energizing aspects of the neighborhoods in the communities of which the serve. This year, hundreds of local Keller Williams Agents, in Northwest Arkansas, donated their time to our local Habitat for Humanity locations.

Events like tonight's 14th Annual Pat Suttle Memorial Chili Cook Off help impact the community by raising monies for the Meals on Wheels programs of Benton and Washington Counties through $5 adult ticket sales, and Silent Auction from items donated by community members and businesses.  

If you share the desire to give back to those in our communities, and are looking for ways to donate your time or items this season, a few places to start might be:

NWA Food Bank
Salvation Army - Angel Tree
Operation Christmas Child
Volunteer Time or Donation at Samaritan Cafe'
