Community Service Day Southwest Event Recap

Last Friday, Windermere offices in California, Nevada, and Arizona took some time off from selling houses to make a big difference in their communities. Over the past week, we have heard some remarkable stories about the rewards of volunteering as a part of our annual Community Service Day.

Southern California

Windermere Downtown San Diego spent the day at the Gary and Mary West Senior Center. Agents and owners worked together to serve more than 600 senior residents lunch, as well as an additional 200 lunches for home delivery; they also organized other fun activities throughout the day.

“We hope to continue to inspire by example the tradition of donating and volunteering in our community where we live and work.”

-Francine Finn, Windermere Owner, Downtown San Diego


Northern California

This year, the Windermere Clayton, Diablo, and Bay Area offices teamed up to help the Boys and Girls Club of Diablo Valley. All three offices worked together to help clean and restore the center.


Windermere Offices in Henderson, Anthem Hills, and Lake Las Vegas teamed up to make a big difference for local elementary students at the Twin Lakes Elementary School in Las Vegas. Agents and staff spent the day cleaning up the school, including refreshing interior doors with new paint. The offices also elected to donate more than 725 new pairs of shoes to the students, most of who are on assistance programs.



Windermere Prescott has spent the last few weeks collecting warm winter clothing, and spent their community service day packing up jackets and blankets to help local families stay warm for the winter.


And the Winners of the Photo Contest are…

Last week we also announced that each office that posted a photo on the Windermere Real Estate Facebook page would be entered in a “Photo Challenge”. The following offices participated and have earned a $100 donation to their Foundation fund:




·         Clayton

·         El Sobrante

·         Walnut Creek

·         Diablo

·         Bay Area


·         Lake Las Vegas

·         Henderson

·         Anthem Hills)

The office with the most “likes” on their photo won an additional $1,000 donation benefiting their Windermere Foundation fund which supports low-income and homeless families.

The winners of this contest are our Northern California group! Windermere offices in Clayton, Diablo, and the Bay Area all worked together to encourage agents, friends and clients to vote, collecting 170 “votes” on their photo

Congratulations to all our Windermere offices for the great Community Service Day!
