During one of the very few sunny days in May, realtors from Keller Williams NY Realty in White Plains took the day off to go to work for the Sisters of the Divine Compassion, as well as other non-profit organizations in and around Westchester County.


Keller Williams’ RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is the company’s annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, Keller Williams celebrates RED Day as a part of their “legacy worth leaving” program, which seeks to make a difference in the lives of others and improve the communities that they serve. It is a program that defines the Keller Williams work culture.


“This observance defines who we are, and is a natural extension of our commitment to the highest level of professional customer service. Over time, a growing number of our family members and friends continue to participate in this extraordinary event. It embodies the generous spirit and commitment associates have to ‘giving back" to the cities and towns where they live and work,” Peggy Shea explained.


“I taught Peggy Shea and Billy Leogrande in the eighth grade at Our Lady of Sorrows 47 years ago.  They were wonderful children to teach then, and are outstanding adults and my good friends today. I am delighted to work with Peggy to identify organizations Keller Williams can support as part of the RED Day campaign. Helping our Divine Compassion Sisters with spring cleaning was a great service this year.  Our Sisters were delighted with the visit and all the help the team provided to them,” Sr. Alice Conrad said.


Sr. Laura Donovan agrees. “Compassion is interdependent. In our mission to be the compassionate presence of God in the world, we have supported, served and educated thousands of children and families in various capacities. It is such a beautiful gift to us to remain connected with so many of them. We are blessed by the compassion and service they choose to give back to us.”


“Everyone on our Keller Williams NY RED Day Team really enjoyed working with the Sisters of the Divine Compassion. This is our second year visiting them, and certainly not the last. We all enjoyed the day and are grateful for the Sisters’ work in our community. When I reached out to Sr. Alice last year for some suggestions, I had no idea she could give me nine projects in different agencies in less than a week. Sr. Alice was always my favorite teacher and now I am happy to say she is my friend, as well.” Ms. Shea said.
