Community Service Day 2015

Posted in Community by Tara Sharp

Today you may notice your local Windermere office is closed, or it may take a little bit longer for your Windermere agent to get back to you. But we promise it’s for a very good reason: today is Windermere Community Service Day. Since 1984, our agents have taken one day a year off to dig into hands-on community service projects throughout the Western U.S. On this day, you’ll find our teams doing a variety of projects, such as cleaning, landscaping, and painting at local senior citizens centers, facilities for homeless children and adults, public parks and schools, low income housing, and emergency shelters, among others.

Follow what our offices are doing on Community Service Day on Facebook! You can also vote for your favorite Community Service Day photos in our #CommunityServiceDay2015  photo contest. The photo with the most votes will receive a $2,000 donation for the Windermere Foundation charity of their choice. Go here to vote: http://bit.ly/19ZHj8h. We encourage you to “like” our Facebook page, follow the Community Service Day projects, and vote your favorite Community Service Day photos!

A big thank you to all of our Windermere Real Estate offices for the amazing work they do. Community Service Day is an important part of what makes Windermere the place it is, and we appreciate everything they do to make our communities a little better.
