Greetings from the Windermere Foundation,
Community Warehouse is a volunteer based non-profit that collects donations of household goods and distributes them to families in need. Their mission is to provide the basic necessities to set up a home for a family in crisis. They impact the lives of over 3,300 families per year – 80% of the households include small children and most have a woman as the head of household.
Hillsboro’s grant of $1,000 will help support their program of collecting donated and household items. As a result, families with children will have beds to sleep in and a blanket to keep warm; pots and pans to cook a meal; dishes to eat it on; a table to eat together as a family; and other necessities that help create a stable environment.
Family Bridge received a $1,000 grant from the Windermere Hillsboro office. Their mission is to serve homeless families with children by providing shelter and meals, onsite-counseling, resources for employment, child care, housing referrals, help and hope, so they might achieve stability and self-sufficiency and have a home of their own.
Windermere’s grant will be used to support the needs of the families during their 6 weeks stay at the shelter. Funds will help with personal care items, groceries, bedding, transportation costs, rental application fees, utility deposits, and move-in costs.
The Pantry@Rock Creek Church and Rebuilding Together also received a $1,000 grant to support their good community work.
