Winter Drive for YouthCare

Windermere and the Seattle Seahawks have come together for another season to help #Tacklehomelessness in our community.

As part of that campaign, Windermere is hosting a “We’ve Got You Covered” winter drive for YouthCare, a non-profit that provides support and services to homeless youth throughout the Puget Sound area.

We are collecting NEW hats, scarves, gloves/mittens, and warm socks.

From October 15 through November 9, you can drop off donations to participating Windermere offices in King and Snohomish Counties**. Our friends at Gentle Giant Moving Company are generously donating their time and trucks to pick up all of the donations from our offices. Donations can also be dropped off directly to YouthCare, Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm, at 2500 NE 54th St, Seattle, WA 98105.

Each night, over 1,500 young people are homeless in King County. Please help them stay warm during the cold winter months by dropping off your donations to our participating offices.

For more information, contact me at 206-200-0222

Do Good While Dining Out

This month Windermere Real Estate Co. has teamed up with neighboring restaurants to Dine Well – Do Good.  Each Monday night in the month of June, Windermere Real Estate Co. is matching tips made to servers – up to $3,000 per night – and 100% of these funds will be donated to Food Lifeline, via the Windermere Foundation.

Food Lifeline is the food bank to food banks. They rescue millions of pounds of surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, and restaurants; then deliver this healthy and nutritious food to 275 food banks, shelters, and meal programs across Western Washington. Through their own ingenuity and clever practices, a single $1 donation can provide the equivalent of four complete meals.

Please join us in supporting local restaurant businesses while also supporting Food Lifeline and the crucial work they do. Browse through the list of participating restaurants and set your Monday night menu for the month of June!

Give Big 2017 is Today!

My career as a real estate agent allows me to connect people to homes where memories are made.  But that opportunity doesn’t come easily for everyone.  I believe in giving back to organizations that are helping people get back on their feet and get one step closer to their dream of home sweet home.

Here are some of the organizations I support with help from you and every sale made.

Windermere Foundation supports low income and homeless families with food, shelter and emergency services right here in our community.

Bellevue Schools Foundation supports students in need across the district and programs that make our schools some of the top in the nation.

Jubilee Reach affirms the value of our Bellevue youth with afterschool activities that promote leadership and teamwork.

Youth Eastside Services (YES) provides support and mental health counseling for our eastside youth.

Plymouth Housing Group provides supportive housing as the formerly homeless make the transition to independent living.

Now more than ever, we are called to support the nonprofits that shape our community and uphold the values that make the Seattle area so special.   So today… skip the latte and stretch your donation today and #GIVEBIG
