On Saturday, May 9, Keller Williams Realty in Rockwall will host a food drive as part of the company’s 12 Annual RED Day charity event.

The food drive will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Trend Tower at 2701 Sunset Ridge and will support food banks in Rockwall, Hunt, Kaufman and parts of Dallas counties.

“The overall need for food donations has increased dramatically as many in our communities have lost their jobs and are forced to close their businesses,” Keller Williams Realty Team Leader Dana K. Macalik said. “The need for food has spiked, overwhelming the resources of food banks.

“We believe the citizens and our clients in Rockwall and the surrounding communities we serve are strong, and people are ready and willing to step up and help us with this cause,” she added.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Saturday, May 9, Keller Williams associates working the food drive at Trend Tower will accept donations of both food and money for area food banks.

“You don’t even have to get out of your car; we will be ready to pick up your boxes of food,” according to a press release sent by Keller Williams.

“Financial donations are great too because the food bank can buy in bulk at wholesale prices, stretching the dollar further.”

For those who cannot participate in the food drive on May 9, but who would still like to donate to the cause, Keller Williams will also accept donations inside the lobby of Trend Tower, right outside of their office.

Monetary donations can be placed in the Keller Williams dropbox on the first level of the parking garage.
