The ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award, which usually goes to an individual, was for the first time given to a company, Keller Williams Realty.  Folsom Chamber Vice President Dawn Johnson said, ‘Keller Williams Realty agents have volunteered for every Chamber of Commerce event, whether they were fundraisers or to educate the community. They really give back to the community and they think about serving the community first, rather than just trying to get business.”
