Hillsboro, OR Office Donates $4,000 to Important Causes

Posted in Grant recipients and News from the Foundation by Christine Wood

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.

 Best,

Christine Wood

  • Community Warehouse is humbled by the outpouring of donations the Hillsboro office has contributed in the way of household items and dozens and dozens of blankets... during our cold weather snap when our blanket supply was depleted! And now we are honored to be selected as a recipient of the gift of $1,000 - which translates into helping to set up an entire household for 8 families recovering from crisis.
    On behalf of the 70+ volunteers and 8 staff, we thank you!
    Linda Dahan, Development Director
