Please consider joining us in support of the Weeks Family.
I met Kevin and his family through my wife who grew up with Kevin and his older brother. Please take a moment to watch this brief video and consider donating to help this family. The Weeks family brought joy and help to many in the community and now it’s time to give back and help them at this time of need.
You may not know the Weeks family, but Sarah, Kevin, and their six children are known for their willingness to help others. Kevin was an unpaid youth pastor at his local church, as well as a community handyman and auto repairman for anyone that truly needed help. Sarah is known in their community as a woman of faith that will pray for you, as well as bring her six little ones to help in any way that is needed.
Kevin Weeks, at the age of 32, was diagnosed right before Christmas 2019 with neuroendocrine small cell carcinoma, an aggressive cancer that attacked his pancreas and liver. After a fierce battle, together with his courageous spirit in his fight with cancer, Kevin Weeks passed into glory and into the arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ. Kevin passed on September 27, 2020 and is survived by his wife, Sarah, and their six children.
The Plan for a Home
Before cancer struck, Kevin was planning to purchase a home for his family that he was going to renovate, since he was a carpenter by trade. He and Sarah had a plan to have their dream home in Estell Manor, NJ by this September. They started investing financially in that home right up until Kevin got sick. Since then, they have been unable to complete the renovations or save the agreed upon amount to purchase the property from the current owner.
Help the Weeks Family
J19 Foundation is asking to help raise the funds needed to purchase and renovate a home for Sarah and their six children. Kevin and Sarah have brought hope to many when it mattered most; now it’s time to call upon anyone who is willing to return the same to this family in need.

There's Plenty To Do And See In South Jersey This Fall.
I love summer in South Jersey. Year round this is a great place to live and visit. As the weather is finally starting to feel like Fall here are 5 sensational things to do in South Jersey This Fall.
Visit The Beach And Boardwalks
The beaches are beautiful this time of year and less crowded. It’s easier to find parking and it’s often free this time of year. Many of the boardwalks still have shops and restaurants open during the Fall on weekends. For Ocean City visit Jilly’s Arcade open year round.
Ride A Bike
Fall is a fantastic time for bike riding. My favorite place is the Atlantic County Bike Path. The Atlantic County Park System maintains the 7.56 mile bike and pedestrian path running between Harbor Square (formerly Shore Mall) in Egg Harbor Township and the Atlantic County Institute of Technology in Hamilton Township. This path is a safe fun way to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. There are also several other municipal bike paths and county and state parks that operate bike trails.
Visit A Farm
This is the garden state and Fall is a great time to visit some of the amazing farms in South Jersey. Many farms have Fall activities and events. Sahl’s Father Son Farms operates a family friendly corn maze in the Fall from now until October 26th in Galloway Township. They have hay rides, pumpkin patch and more. To meet some amazing animals visit the Funny Farm Animal Rescue in Mays Landing.
Visit The Cranberry Bogs
This is a totally unique thing to South Jersey. If you haven’t seen it you’ll definitely want to check it out. Check out JJ White and Pine Barren Native Fruits in Browns Mills. This week they are starting harvest across the cranberry bogs. Schedule a tour or visit Whitesbog to see some of the harvest. Then stop by JJ White Farm at 1 Pasadena to purchase some fresh cranberries, jellies, jams, salad dressing and salsa (awesome) directly from the farmer.
This is a great time of year to watch the birds fly South for the winter. There are some great places to drive to and see birds and wildlife up close. The Edwin B Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Galloway Township is a fantastic spot to drive out onto the marshes. Also Cape May Point State Park is fantastic this time of year.
What do you like to do in South Jersey in the Fall. Comment and let us know your thoughts.

On May 9th Our Offices Worldwide Took Time To Donate Time And Resources To Those In Need
RED Day 2019 is a day to Renew Energize and Donate back to the community. This year we were able to help a fantastic organization called Operation Safe Haven. This organization provides free tiny houses to veterans and also provides support services and a community food pantry for veterans in the community. Right now they have 3 homes up and they are expecting more coming later this year.
We had many projects going on for red day and about 150 volunteers from Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Shore and Washington Township offices. We were also joined by many community members who volunteered their time and expertise. Some of our projects included renovating a pump house, putting a new roof on a bath house, cleaning up debris from a demolished building, cutting trees, chipping wood, raking leaves, splitting wood and more. If you would like to learn more about this organization or sponsor a Veteran please visit https://opsafehaven.com/.
Thank you to our wonderful clients for introducing us to the people you care about.
Congratulations to our prize winners!
This year we brought back one of our favorite client appreciation events our Client Appreciation Day at the Cape May County Park and Zoo. We had over 40 people attend this event and participate in our famous photo scavenger hunt! Once again we had a fantastic fajita bar curtesy of Moe’s Southwest Grill. It’s great to catch up with past clients and show our appreciation for their support of our business.
Our goal is to keep in touch with our clients after the sale and be a constant resource to them. Our purpose is for our clients to be so outrageously happy with the help that we provide that they gladly introduce us to the people they care about. So thank you again to our clients for another great day at the Zoo. And if you would like to be our next client contact us for a complementary consultation.
Keller Williams Realty "Red Day" and Texas Avenue School Sponsor Student Event.
Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Shore Team participates annually in the corporate Keller Williams’ Red Day. Red Day was designed to be a day that thousands of Keller Williams Realtors and staff in every state give back to their communities in a way that will have a drastic, positive impact on that community.
On May 11th, 2017, the agents of Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Shore Team partnered with Texas Avenue Public School in Atlantic City, NJ to help promote their anti-bullying program titled “Live the Pledge.” 100+ students participated with KW volunteers in a celebratory, fun-filled day. There was carnival games, a scavenger hunt, awards and a public dedication to the school presented by the KW team.
The local KW office also donated outdoor basketball and soccer equipment that the school was lacking. The challenge faced by all New Jersey schools is to create a positive and healthy school climate. The Anti-Harassment Intimidation and Bullying (H.I.B.) Bill of Rights goes beyond the requirements of providing a full investigation of alleged HIB incidents, consequences for those found in violation of the Bill of Rights and support for the children found to be a victim. Since the Bill of Rights in 2011, Texas Ave. School has implemented several school and community-wide programs that promote a positive school environment. Each program has given birth to the other. The inception of the Bucket Filling Philosophy, led to the “Take a Stand, Lend a Hand” initiative, which resulted in the current incentive program of “Live the Pledge.”
Keller Williams Realty is grateful to have partnered up with Texas Avenue school children who “Live the Pledge.” Their commitment of creating a positive climate for their classmates is truly inspiring.
