Building Better Communities – March Edition

Posted in Collections and drives by Marilou Ubungen

Windermere offices throughout our network work with local organizations year-round to raise money for the Windermere Foundation and their local communities. In 2011, we launched the “Building Better Communities, One Home Sale at a Time” campaign, to raise awareness for some of the amazing community partnerships our offices and agents have developed. These projects go above and beyond Windermere Foundation donations and our annual Community Service Day. Below are just a few of the events that took place during the month of March. You can follow all upcoming projects on our Building Better Communities page.

Clothing Drive:

Throughout the month of March, the Windermere Property Management/Lori Gill & Associates office in Edmonds, Washington teamed up with the Northwest Center to collect gently used clothing and small household goods to provide to local families.

North Shore Milk Money Project:

Windermere’s Northlake office in Lake Forest Park, Washington has partnered with the Milk Money Project to raise money for homeless children in the Northshore School District. The Milk Money Project is kicking-off its 2013 campaign on March 28 and will run until May 31. Look for the milk bottles in your local stores and donate your change to support the cause.

Silent Auction Fundraiser:

On March 21, the Windermere office in Redmond, Washington hosted their annual silent auction and fundraiser to benefit local families in need. The night’s festivities raised over $10,000 for the Windermere Foundation.

Food Drive:

The Windermere Greenwood office in Seattle showed their support of the Greenwood Food Bank by collecting food and money donations throughout the month of March. The office also submitted a video to the Verity Mom Cartwheel for a Cause competition, for a chance to win a $6,000 donation for the Greenwood Food Bank.

Windermere Serves:

On March 24, the Windermere office in Marysville, Washington hosted their second annual “Windermere Serves” event at Buck's American Cafe in Everett. Windermere agents took over as wait staff for the evening, with all tips and donations going to the Windermere Foundation and benefitting the Marysville Boys and Girls Club.

Washington Park Improvement Project:

The Windermere office in Walla Walla, Washington partnered with the city of Walla Walla to improve the Washington Park soccer fields, including permanent benches. The soccer fields are used by more than 500 local youth for practice and soccer games.

Thanks to your continued support and generous donations, The Windermere Foundation is able to provide funds to community organizations dedicated to supporting low-income and homeless families. Thank you for choosing Windermere. Together, we are Building Better Communities.
