Here’s a highlight of another Windermere Foundation recipient on the Eastside! One of the organizations we’ve donated to is Mamma’s Hands in Bellevue. This grant supports three Houses of Hope that house mothers and children in crises from abuse and homelessness, and helps them develop individual plans to bring life-altering, positive changes to their lives.
Mamma’s Hands was founded to provide hope and support to those in crisis. Their mission is to help those in crisis regain their self-respect, and to provide them the support and direction they need to become productive members of society. Their vision: Hope in Every Individual. With the help of countless volunteers and donors, Mamma’s Hands has grown into a powerful force for good in the Seattle area.
Thank you for all of your dedicated, hard work, Mamma’s Hands! We are so honored to be supporting your organization.
Visit the Mamma’s Hands website for more information on their programs and how you can support them.
It’s time to highlight another Windermere Foundation recipient for this year! One of the organizations we’ve donated to is Birthday Dreams. They help fulfill birthday parties for homeless youth in the area through their Birthday-in-a-Box program.
Birthday Dreams strives to provide birthday joy to children who are homeless in the Puget Sound Area. This organization was founded on the simple principle that children must have this sense of hope, encouragement and belief that there are people who care so that they can weather the storms of their circumstances. One day, their day, to be free of all burdens and just enjoy the excitement of their birthday party.
They have already fulfilled over 2800 birthday dreams for local children! Thank you, Birthday Dreams, for everything you do! We are so happy to be supporting you!
The Windermere Foundation is excited to supporting a number of local charities this year. One of the organizations we’ve donated to is the Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue to help support Project Learn, including after school and summer camp programs, at three low-income housing Clubhouses.
The Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue runs after school, sports and recreational programs for kids and teens. Club sites throughout Bellevue provide a positive, safe place where over 11,000 youth each year have fun, make friends and learn. Our goal is to inspire and enable young people, especially those who need it most, to realize their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
We have several fundraisers and programs set up to support the Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue throughout the year like the annual Adopt-a-Family donation drive. We are so happy to give back to organizations like this in our community!
The Windermere Foundation is excited to supporting a number of local charities this year. One of the organizations we’ve donated to is Royal Family Kids to help support their summer camp for abused, neglected and abandoned foster children.
Royal Family Kids’ Camp in Issaquah (d.b.a. Hope Alliance for Kids) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created to provide support and services to at risk youth with an emphasis on foster children and their families. Founded in 1998, it offered a single Royal Family Kids’ Camp for foster kids ages 7-11. In 2014 Hope Alliance for Kids offered its 16th annual Royal Family Kids’ Camp and its 3rd annual Teen Reach Adventure Camp for foster teens ages 12-15.
Our Vision: To make a difference in the lives of children, who through no fault of their own, have suffered abandonment, abuse and neglect, and give them hope for their future.
Our Mission: To provide services and support to foster children and their families that build on the positive experiences of our camping programs.
Our Goal: That every foster child in King County ages 7 – 15 would be able to attend a summer camp filled with life changing experiences and love that focuses on meeting the special needs of abused and neglected children.
On December 4th, they start their group shopping day where about 20 agents shop together for the children. Some agents can even adopt a family on their own to shop with their own family to experience the giving spirit. Then they have a group wrapping party early next week and on December 11th, they go deliver the gifts. We can’t wait to see all the presents they deliver to the families this year!
UPDATE: This year, they wrapped and donated gifts for 25 kids and 13 families!
Thanks for participating and giving back to your community, Windermere Bellevue Commons!
