Art Walk at Windermere Greenwood

Community Service Day

Every year since 1984, Windermere has closed its offices for one day to help make a positive difference in our local communities. Thirty-four 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.

Our Windermere Greenwood office usually works on projects with the Phinney Neighborhood Association, the North Seattle Boys & Girls Club, or local schools like Greenwood Elementary.

Greenwood Car Show & Beer Garden for Charity

Our beer garden for charity takes place in our parking lot during the annual Greenwood Greenwood Car Show in June. We receive donations of beer, cider, seltzer and wine from local companies, and feature a food truck, lawn games, and live music.

100% proceeds from this event are donated to the Windermere Foundation, which supports low-income and homeless families in the community. In the past, we have directed the money we raised to the North Seattle Boys & Girls Club and The Bureau for Fearless Ideas, both within blocks of our office. In 2022 we are directing the money to Homesight, which helps reduce barriers to homeownership for People of Color. More info on Homesight here.


Thanksgiving Meals

Throughout November we collect food & cash donations from our agents and their clients so that we can put together full Thanksgiving meals for local families. The North Seattle Boys & Girls Club and Greenwood Senior Center connect us with local families in need and we are able to provide them with turkeys, fresh vegetables, canned goods like green beans & cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pies, so they are able to celebrate the holiday.

Santa Paws

Every December @Windermere Greenwood is our annual Christmas event for clients! Bring your children and/or pets for a picture with Santa. Photos are free but we ask that you bring a non-perishable item for donation to the North Seattle Food Bank!
