Following the annual Keller Williams fundraiser, a $10,000 check was presented to the Friendship House.
The Friendship House offers adult day services while giving guests a home-like setting.
Every year, Keller Williams Real Estate offices close nationwide to give back to the communities.
Over 1,000 plates were sold through a jambalaya plate fundraiser and the companies goal was completed. Board President Joel Ferrier with the Friendship House said he’s extremely grateful for the donation.
“There's been times where we've really struggled financially, cause we are a small organization, and depend on private donations,” Ferrier explained. “And so this just means the world to me, this just means that our participants will be able to continue to come every day and they will be able to just go into the future and that we'll be able to keep our doors open."
