Every year since 1984, the brokers and employees of Windermere offices have taken a day to give back to their communities at large. Community Service Day, held each June in the Northwest Region, is an event we all really look forward to. Windermere offices located in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Hawaii, and Utah will close their doors tomorrow, June 20th, and head out to complete a project to benefit our local communities. Over at the Windermere Blog, check out all the projects planned throughout Windermere’s Northwest Region. Projects include 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. In addition, there are offices running food drives, assembling filled backpacks for low income students, and assembling resource kits for homeless youth.
Here at Windermere Real Estate/Mercer Island, most of our projects have centered on keeping Mercer Island’s parks and green spaces clean and maintained. Click here to see a list of our past Community Service Day projects. Tomorrow, we’ll head over to Mercerdale Park around 8:30 am to set up for work in the park between 9am and noon.
We would love to have you stop by and see us. Just follow our brokers’ open house signs at Mercerdale Park, which will indicate the sectors we are working in. Also, Windermere is hosting a photo contest. Each office that posts a Community Service Day photo on the company Facebook page will receive $100 for their Windermere Foundation accounts AND be in the running for the $1000 grand prize, to be donated to the Windermere Foundation charity of the winner’s choice. If you use Facebook, would you please consider liking the Windermere Mercer Island photo that will be placed on the Windermere Company Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/WindermereRealEstate) on the afternoon of Friday, June 20th?
Community service day is like the Peace Corps, well, the mini version anyway:)
As a former Peace Corps member, Tom’s view of Community Service is really special. All the brokers at Windermere Mercer Island look forward to seeing you, their friends and neighbors, over at Mercerdale Park!
