Ben Kinney real estate agents and associates participate in Keller Williams day of service

Ben Kinney offices throughout the Pacific Northwest, including in Keller Williams in Kirkland, participated in the annual Keller Williams Realty annual day of service on Thursday.

Local Keller Williams agents and associates partnered with Friends of Youth to do landscaping and painting, help file paperwork and clean at their youth homeless facility in Kirkland.

This was all part of RED (Renew, Energize, and Donate) Day, which falls on the second Thursday of May each year. On this day, associates from Ben Kinney offices and Keller Williams organizations throughout the country spend the day away from their businesses serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities.

“I’m proud of the support we offer the community throughout the year and on RED Day,” said Ben Kinney Companies founder Ben Kinney. “Serving organizations that better the lives of less fortunate members of our community, reflects one of our core values: Giving back.”

In addition to the work in Kirkland, other local Ben Kinney offices in Everett, Seattle, Tacoma, Bellingham, Skagit and Whidbey spent Thursday volunteering in the community to provide service and support to multiple nonprofits throughout the Pacific Northwest. From working with Habitat for Humanity to help a family rebuild their home, to assembling Mother’s Day baskets for homeless women, to painting a clean and sober house, Ben Kinney associates were excited to make a difference in the lives of their community members on RED Day and throughout the year.


The Ben Kinney Companies include seven Keller Williams offices in Washington state, and locations in Colorado, Texas, California, Idaho, Georgia and New Mexico, and one in London; a collection of real estate-related training and software companies, including ActiveRain, Kwkly, Brivity and Blossor; and the Ben Kinney Training Organization.
