If there’s a group that knows curb appeal, the 100 or so red-clad volunteers roaming Paradise on Thursday were it.
So, they added some.
Red Day, an annual service event by Keller Williams Realty, focused on the Fort Mill neighborhood this year as volunteers gathered with Habitat for Humanity of York County to spruce up the area.
“There’s a lot of painting,” said Tim Veeck, Habitat executive director. “They’re doing a lot of landscaping at a lot of sites.”
The effort is part of 25 home repair projects slated for Paradise in 2016, along with five more Habitat projects in Clover. Habitat also will construct four homes this year, three in Rock Hill and one in Clover. The nonprofit has been partnering on home and safety renovations for several years now, working with a variety of corporate and civic partners.
“We have 100 associates here volunteering their time, their effort and their energy, and their finances, to contribute to projects for Habitat for Humanity, and we couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Shelby Ryburn with Keller Williams.
