Over the past several months Windermere Real Estate has supported our local local communities, assisting front line medical staff and local food banks.
Windermere brokers and staff raised over $17,500 to buy meals for medical staff on the front lines at EvergreenHealth Medical Center. Those funds purchased 1,200 meals from local restaurants – just a small token of our appreciation for all they do, and continue to do.
For the past 35 years Windermere Real Estate offices have closed on the first Friday in June for our annual Community Service Day so our 9,000 member team can head into our local communities to volunteer. This year, due to COVID-19, the decision was made to replace Community Service Day with a fundraising challenge to help local food banks and the people they serve. The Windermere Foundation pledged to match every dollar raised, up to $250,000, with the goal of donating $500,000 to food banks in the communities where we live and work. We are thrilled and appreciative to all those who donated, raising a total of $690,000 for local food banks.
WINDERMERE . . . COMING TOGETHER TO SUPPORT OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES.
This year I celebrate 30 years as a Realtor® and a decade with Windermere Real Estate. Locally owned, Windermere has deep roots in the community and a commitment to support the neighborhoods where we live and work. I’m proud to support the Windermere Foundation and its efforts to support organizations assisting low income and homeless families and individuals in our local communities.
You may have difficulty getting in touch with your local Windermere broker today, but there’s a very good reason. Today is Community Service Day. A tradition at Windermere since 1984, each year Windermere offices close for the day to help make a positive difference in our communities. Over 30 years and more than one million hours of community service later, we’ve continued this tradition through neighborhood enhancing projects in the areas where Windermere brokers live, work and play.
