In addition to our makeover of the Dunedin Foster Home, we will be collecting from now until all next week for The Haven which is a domestic violence shelter in North Pinellas County, and also canned/boxed food items for FEAST a food Pantry located here in Palm Harbor. This is all a continuation of our efforts for RED Week, where Keller Williams Agents all over the country and Canada (Next year internationally, yeah!!) will be giving back to their communities in all ways, shapes and forms.

The Haven is in need of the following:

Update on Keller Williams Dunedin Foster Home Makeover

Well the Keller Williams Real Estate agents active in the buying and selling of real estate in Pinellas and Pasco countys and banded together with the help of their contacts, friends and clients and have greatly reduced our wants and needs list for our project to complete a room addition and makeover for a Dunedin Foster Mom who has done soooo much for Pinellas County kids in need for years!!

Here is our updated needs list and schedule for this event. We were able to really put a dent into our needs list yesterday with the help of all our friends.

We still need:

about 20 sheets of 1/2 inch plywood for flooring

about 40 sheets of T-111 siding.
2 - 3 x 5 windows - single hung
One Exterior prehung door 3 ft x 6 ft 8 inch
Trim molding 1 x 4 for doors and windows

Thanks so much to all involved that helped us raise a bunch of cash, electrician, paint, carpet etc. yesterday. Cash donations are still very helpful so we can buy the materials we need. See yesterdays post for the link to give directly through Eckerd Community Services.

We are very excited to be able to give back to our community in this way!

Keller Williams Realty Leads the Way to a Mini Makeover of Dunedin Foster Home

Keller Williams Realty celebrates Red Day on May 13, 2010. This is a day that we have turned into a week in order to really give back to our community. We are doing a mini-makeover of a Foster Home here locally in North Pinellas County in the lovely City of Dunedin. We are in need of some serious help. The best help at this time is monetary help so we can afford to buy the necessary supplies. We also need some contractor support. As of today we need about 3 hours of time for an electrician and I will attach the specific needs list below. This is a great, great cause and we hope you can assist in any matter possible. If everyone gives a little we will soon have all we need.

In addition we are collecting can foods for The Feast in Palm Harbor and personal care items etc for The Haven, a local Domestic Violence organization that houses adults and children that are trying to get away from bad situations at home. Any of these items can be dropped off at our Palm Harbor office at 35095 US 19 No, Suite 100, Palm Harbor, FL 34684. This is in the Gibraltor Building, just south of Alderman on the East side of US 19.

Thanks for helping make a difference in the life of this awesome Foster Mom and all the kids she has worked with over the years!
