KW RED DAY

Fair Oaks Mothers Day

 

Our book drive came to a happy close on Red Day 2018. My team collected and donated almost 500 books to Fair Oaks Elementary School children. Besides the books, KW agents from our Peninsula Estates office in Burlingame spent the afternoon with the children, engaging them in games, sports, face painting, hula hoops, eating good food and listening to mariachi music! For these kids, who come primarily from disadvantaged families, the knowledge that other people care about them is a message they will carry with them for life.

This event really makes a difference for these students, and their parents and teachers. This school was almost closed recently, but the community response was such that they were given another chance to boost enrollment. They did! And this is a school that makes a tremendous difference in the lives of the kids and their parents. They have very little means, but the strength of this school makes it a community resource.

Thank you to everyone who donated books.  The kids LOVED rummaging through and finding favorites! And thank you to KW agents and my team for participating in this meaningful event!
