Los Angeles, California - RED, a real estate group based at Keller Williams Realty on Larchmont Blvd, collected 243 bags of non-perishable food items in 6 neighborhoods for their first annual food drive to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Additionally, RED hosted a virtual food drive which resulted in enough funding for 1,000 meals.
“We are overwhelmed at the generosity of our friends and neighbors in each and every one of the neighborhoods we targeted,” said John Barrentine, Managing Partner of RED. “Our thanks go out to everyone who participated in this year’s food drive”.
On Monday, RED distributed almost 1,500 grocery bags to homes in Wilshire-Vista, Carthay Circle, South Carthay, Carthay Square, Spaulding Square and Sunset Square. On Thursday they collected the bags that generous community members had filled with food items. They were expecting to have about 100 households donate items, and were elated when they filled 3 SUVs with bags of food.
Each year Keller Williams agents across North America and around the world give their time and energy by participating in a day of community service called Red Day. This year more than 50,000 agents participated. Here in Los Angeles, RED chose the LA Regional Food Bank because of their untiring efforts to feed neighbors in need. Last year the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank fed more than 1,000,000 hungry Angelinos.
RED is owned by John Barrentine and Morgan Pasco, Managing Partners, and is located at 118 N. Larchmont Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90004.
