Windermere Community Service Day 2015

Today is our annual Community Service Day!

 

This year, our dedicated Windermere Greenwood real estate brokers volunteered to paint fun and games for the preschool playground at Viewlands Elementary School.

Viewlands Elementary School

From simple chalk outlines, the lifecycle of a frog from eggs to tadpole, froglet to full grown frogs leaping across lilly pads came to life. A habitat mural along the back wall with ABC’s and 123’s plus every kid’s favorite – hopscotch games in full fun colors are ready for the preschoolers to enjoy!

Every year Windermere closes its offices for one day to help make a positive difference in our local communities. It all started in 1984 when a handful of Windermere owners and agents came together to make repairs at a local elementary school. Thirty years and more than one million hours of community service later, we’ve continued this tradition through neighborhood-enhancing projects in the areas where our Windermere teams live, work, and play. Follow our projects online at www.facebook.com/WindermereRealEstate.

Community Service Day 2014

 

On Friday, June 20, Windermere offices in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Hawaii, and Utah will be closed for a very special reason. Since 1984, Windermere has dedicated the third Friday of June to our annual Community Service Day*. On that day, you will find our team doing a variety of projects, including 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.

This year, our dedicated agents moved mounds of dirt, created raised garden beds, planted sunflowers, dug fence posts, helped build a sand box, painted the gym, organized games, cleaned, painted & scrubbed our local Greenwood Boys & Girls Club Community Center.

Each office that posts a Community Service Day photograph or video on the Windermere Real Estate Facebook page, (www.facebook.com/WindermereRealEstate) the Windermere Foundation will donate $100 dollars to that office’s Foundation fund, to benefit low-income and homeless families. We encourage you to “like” our Facebook page, follow the Community Service Day projects, 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 Windermere Foundation charity of their choice. The contest will end Thursday, July 3.
