29 Oct Community Service Day 2019 – Boys and Girls Club of Cathedral City
Every year, Windermere Homes & Estates’ agents and staff donate a day of service to their local community. This year, WHE supported The Boys and Girls Club of Cathedral City. The clubs mission is “To inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive responsible and caring citizens”. At the club, these young people learn not only practical skills but are encouraged to do the right thing and rise above their current environment. The club is served by many volunteers who remember that this club literally saved them at a crucial time in their lives.
Throughout the year, agents donate a portion of their commissions from each real estate transaction that is then donated to the charity of their choice, this year being the Boys & Girls Club of Cathedral City. Along with their donation comes a day of service in the community. On October 22, 2019 they rolled up their sleeves and donated their time to help the club with clean-up, maintenance, repairs, and more!
Windermere has set out to change the real estate industry by putting relationships before sales quotas, with an emphasis on service to client and community. What does this mean for you? It means integrity, a strict code of ethics, serious market expertise, and a hardcore commitment to the community. These aren’t just words; it is truly what Windermere has striven to stand for the past 46 years, and will continue to do so in the years to come. For the past 23 years, the Windermere Foundation has donated a portion of the proceeds from every home purchased or sold towards supporting low-income and homeless families in the community. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation serving families in need in Washington State has grown to encompass ten states and has raised over $38 million for programs and organizations that provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance and other services to those who need our help the most.
