Windermere Community Service Day 2012
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 Seattle-area elementary school. Nearly three decades and more than 800,000 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. After all, real estate is rooted in our communities. And an investment in our neighborhoods gives us all a better place to call home.
Past projects for Windermere Community Service Day have included cleaning, landscaping, painting and light carpentry to benefit senior citizens centers, facilities for physically and mentally challenged children and adults, public schools, low income housing and emergency shelters, among others.
This year Windermere Puyallup will be doing yard work, painting, re-building fences, and anything that is needed at the Washington Soldiers Home and Colony. The WA Soldiers Home and Colony is located on 181 acres in the beautiful Puyallup Valley near Orting, and serve up to 183 residents needing both skilled-nursing and assisted-living care. Established in 1891, this was the first of three homes built in Washington State for Veterans.
