Windermere’s Southwest Community Service Day is Friday, October 18th!

Posted in Community by Tara Sharp

On Friday, October 18th, Windermere offices in Arizona, California, and Nevada will be closed for a very special reason. For the past 29 years, Windermere has dedicated the third Friday of October to our annual Community Service Day*. On that day, you will find our teams doing a variety of projects, like cleaning, landscaping, and painting at local community centers and schools, collecting coats for low-income and homeless families, and working with local nonprofit organizations to ensure that kids in our communities are getting the resources they need.

This year we want to do even more, and you can help. For each office that posts their Community Service Day photos and videos on the Windermere Real Estate Facebook page (, the Windermere Foundation will donate $100 to that office’s Foundation fund, to benefit low-income and homeless families in their community. We encourage you to “like” your local office’s Facebook page, as well as your favorite Community Service Day photos. The office with the most photo/video “likes” and comments will receive a $1,000 donation for the local Windermere Foundation charity of their choice. The contest will end next Wednesday, October 30th.
