Keller Williams Associates “Give Where They Live” at Girl Scouts

Keller Williams associates may be taking a day off today, but it will hardly be a day of rest. Associates with Keller Williams Coastal Virginia have chosen to “Give Where They Live” as part of RED Day, the company’s annual day of service. RED Day began in 2009 as an opportunity for associates to spend the day away from business and dedicate a day to renewing, energizing and donating to their local communities.

As part of the RED Day effort, Keller Williams Coastal Virginia associates chose to spend the day at A Place for Girls, the regional program center and headquarters for Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, in Chesapeake. The associates spent the morning weeding, mulching and planting flowers in the garden beds out front of A Place for Girls. This much-needed help will add a fresh and inviting look to the program center before girls begin coming each day for summer camp.

“RED Day is a chance for us to stop and take a break from our jobs to give back to the community where we work,” Diana Cournoyer, market center administrator with Keller Williams Coastal Virginia, said. Cournoyer, who is a Girl Scout alumna and earned the second highest leadership award in Girl Scouts, the Silver Award, understands the importance of giving back to an organization dedicated to helping girls build leadership skills. Today, Cournoyer’s niece is a member of the organization.

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast relies on adult volunteers who give their time and talent to make a difference—including volunteers who can offer a short-term commitment to Girl Scouts, such as the associates from Keller Williams. If you can give a day, a week or more, Girl Scouts has a volunteer opportunity for you. For more information about volunteering with Girl Scouts, visit
