Keller Williams International Day of service Red Day 2020 was May 14th this year! This event is an integral part of the Keller Williams culture. It displays the extraordinary impact a company can have when individuals come together to work as a team. Keller Williams 504-207-2007 partnered with Eden House as this years project.

Delisha Boyd Realty, LLC
Delisha has done great things for our community. She helped provide nearly 700 hot meals for front liners in this pandemic (nurses, doctors, police, firemen, and postal workers). She enlisted the help of one of her favorite locally owned restaurants to cook the meals. So, that act sowed into a small and locally owned restaurants while providing a meal for our first responders. A restaurant that was struggling after the stay home mandate went into affect. This gesture is truly invaluable. It was during the first couple of weeks of the stay home mandate when emotions were high and fear was setting in for most. Today she partnered with some other people to hand out hundreds of FREE masks to help fight COVID-19.
She received personal notes from nurses and doctors grateful for a hot lunch. It meant so much to them to know they are praised and appreciated. People picked masks today saying they were grateful because they couldn't afford to pick them up.

Had a request from two people on our community page asking for 2 masks so I had four and brought two to them to help out. They were elderly and really appreciated it. Wish I had more to offer others!!

I wanted to give a shot out to Eric Hernandez, NOLA Living Realty, who has been extremely generous in supporting our front line workers and local churches during this time.
Eric organized and funded a meal giveaway for Jefferson Parish police officers on April 3rd at Bobby Hebert's Cajun Cannon in which he provided free lunch/dinner for all of our brave officers working the frontline. On April 11 he held another event at Bobby Hebert's for front line health care workers, in which he again provided complimentary meals as well as free Avion margaritas for all attendees. Then, this past Sunday, he provided two local churches with over 200 free meals.
I hope he can get a shot out, he's so generous -- I'm so proud that he's my broker!
