Community Service Day 2018

On Friday, June 8th our Windermere offices closed their doors for our annual Community Service Day. Since 1984, Windermere has dedicated a day to giving back to the community and assisting with neighborhood improvement initiatives.

We’re proud to share these projects completed by our East, Inc. offices:

Jubilee Reach

The Bellevue and Bellevue West offices teamed up to lend a hand at Jubilee REACH. This local organization supports the social and emotional needs of children and their families through mentoring, tutoring, and after-school clubs and sports programs within Bellevue public schools. Our Windermere team helped with a variety of maintenance tasks including painting doors and benches, landscaping, replacing lights, washing windows, repainting the basketball court, pressure washing walkways and play sets, and more. We are proud of our offices’ hard work at this site, and we are grateful to Jubilee REACH for their important contributions to our community and for letting us be a part of their mission!

Kids Without Borders

Windermere Redmond CSD 2018

Our Redmond office assisted Bellevue-based Kids Without Borders, an organization founded by Son Michael Pham, who used his experience as a refugee from Vietnam as a catalyst to serve children in our local and international communities with the vision of “all kids, one world.” Agents and staff spent the day with Son Michael Pham at the KWB storage units where they sorted and packed clothing for distribution to families in need. This was a great opportunity for us to return some of the generosity this organization has put into our global community!

Heritage Park

Windermere Yarrow Bay CSD 2018

Yarrow Bay agents and staff rolled up their sleeves, slipped on their gardening gloves, and grabbed shears and rakes to landscape and remove invasive plants at Heritage Park near downtown Kirkland. The park offered an incredible view of the Seattle skyline across Lake Washington as they worked – a reminder of how lucky we are to be able to enjoy the serenity of nature while still being close to the bustling city. We were happy to do our part to beautify and help preserve part of what makes our community so special!

Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic

Windermere Bellevue South CSD 2018

Our Bellevue South office gave back by partnering with Seattle Children’s Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic, which strives to promote quality pediatric care, family advocacy, health collaboration, mentoring, and education in a culturally relevant context. Our agents and staff helped with landscaping and mulching the clinic grounds, facilitating the book drive, and working on art projects with kids at the clinic. As an added bonus, they had the chance to listen to talks by a pediatrician and Lenny Wilkens, former NBA player and coach and current children’s healthcare advocate. We are thankful to OBCC for welcoming and inspiring us on Community Service Day and every day!

Cougar Mountain Zoo

Windermere Issaquah CSD 2018

Our Issaquah office headed to the Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah to help with their mission to increase the understanding and appreciation of the Earth’s wildlife and the role of humanity in nature through education, conservation, propagation, and exhibition – and enjoy the company of some of its animal inhabitants. A few of their projects included clearing brush, painting benches, and habitat maintenance/wall building. This was one of the Issaquah office’s favorite Community Service Day projects, and we loved seeing them experience the zoo in a whole new way that reminded us of all of the work that goes into maintaining these neighborhood treasures!

Community Service Day has always been a treasured tradition and an important part of our culture here at Windermere. We greatly appreciate everything our agents invest in our communities to make them even better. Thank you all for continuing to make this a place we are proud to call HOME.
