Bringing comfort to families in need: Tacoma Professional Partners volunteer at Multicare Tree House

Posted in Grant recipients and Video Contest by Tara Sharp

Windermere Tacoma- Professional Partners spent May 20th serving the families and volunteers at the Tacoma Multicare Tree house. Volunteers prepared a fully stocked Taco bar for families. There was so much food the Windermere team visited the nearby hospitals, Tacoma General’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Mary Bridge’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and invited families waiting to join residents for dinner at the Tree House facility. Volunteers spent the day chatting with families and providing additional support to the volunteers and residents.

Windermere Professional Partners has a long-standing history with Multicare Tree House, they are dedicated fundraisers, provide volunteer services and have sponsored a room in Wally Starkey’s memory (a former owner). The funds dedicated to Tree House through the Windermere Foundation go to support access for low income families.

Multicare Tree house provides housing for families while their children are receiving medical care at Tacoma General’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or Mary Bridge’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The organization provides family housing, sleep rooms, bathrooms, a place to eat, phone, internet and TVs as well as a laundry facility. The work volunteers do at tree house helps families find comfort in some of their hardest hours.

In 2010 the Windermere Foundation sponsored a video contest, asking for video submissions showcasing the amazing organizations Windermere Foundation and Offices have the privilege to work with. We received 24 video submissions and selected five ‘winning’ videos in late September 2010. The Offices who submitted these videos have received a $2,000 donation to benefit their Foundation charity of choice. All the videos are too good to keep to ourselves, so over the next two months we will be sharing the videos created by Windermere Offices and highlight the great organizations they chose to work with.
