Adopt-a-Family With Bellevue Commons

1-Adopt a Family 2011_b WEB

Over the next week, Windermere Bellevue Commons partners up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Bellevue for their Adopt-a-Family campaign. This is their fourth year participating, and last year the program benefitted approximately 200 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!

Woodinville Benefits The Forgotten Children’s Fund

photo 1Windermere Woodinville hosted its free Santa photo event benefitting The Forgotten Children’s Fund this last Friday, December 5th. This was their seventh year doing the event and every year is special! Anyone can come in for the evening to get free pictures with Santa, enjoy beverages and snacks, and sit by the fire. Besides seeing jolly ol’ St. Nick, visitors are also invited to bring toy or money donations for The Forgotten Children’s Fund.

This year, around 97 families stopped by for pictures with Santa and they collected around $2,000 for donation! What a festive and special event!

Windermere Bellevue Helping Hopelink

Giving Thanks

The Windermere Bellevue office is collecting donations from all of their staff and brokers for Hopelink for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Their goal is to collect $2,000 and everyone in the office has been participating. They’ve been collecting donations since the end of October and things are looking great for the final donation! The last day to donate is Monday, November 24th.

Thanksgiving is so much more than a turkey dinner… On the fourth Thursday in November homes will fill with the aroma of turkey and pumpkin pie. As temperatures turn cold outdoors, we’ll warm ourselves inside and out with gatherings of friends and family… yet there are so many families that need help in providing their turkey dinner.

UPDATE: Windermere Bellevue was able to collect $2255 for donation to Hopelink! AND it was their largest donation to date!

Thank you for sharing in the season of giving, Windermere Bellevue!
