Keller Williams initiative supports first-responders, care facilities

Gabriel Deukmaji, Christine Sennott, Cathi Coridan, Bethany Stalder, Joanne Smurtz and Roger Faddoul (owner of Old Town Deli) were among those participating in the FrontYards2FrontLines initiative of Keller Williams Realty in conduction with New Hope Housing.

Agents and staff from Keller Williams Realty’s Metro Center office have joined with New Hope Housing in a new effort – FrontYards2FrontLines – which works to feed front-line workers during the public-health emergency as well as provide masks to nursing facilities, hospitals, senior centers and service groups.

Among the organizations aided have been a variety of local hospitals; the fire/EMS services of Arlington, Alexandria and several other jurisdictions; the Vienna and Falls Church police departments; Falls Church sanitation department; Culpepper Garden Senior Center; and the U.S. Postal Service.

The effort also is working to raise funds to benefit the INOVA Emergency Fund, paying for the conversion of negative-pressure rooms for the treatment of COVID-19 and infectious patients.

“These critically needed rooms help keep patients and staff safer by controlling the spread of airborne diseases,” said Natalie Roy, a Realtor with KW Metro Center.
