Windermere Professional Partners Agents Present $9,000 Check to Northwest Furniture Bank!

northwest furniture bankThis week Windermere Professional Partners agents returned to Northwest Furniture Bank to present them with a check for $9,000. Last time the agents were atNorthwest Furniture Bank they were delivering mattresses, assembling furniture, and painting walls. So what happened?

“Several years ago the WPP Broker Advisory Board (made up of agents elected from WPP offices) took the initiative to select the charitable organization that our company would support on an annual basis,” says Kevin Mullin, Owner and Managing Broker of Windermere Professional Partners. “When we heard Bill Lemke’s story and the reason he and his wife have such a passion for their work, Northwest Furniture Bank was embraced as the chosen charitable organization for WIndermere Professional Partners Realtors.”

NW Furniture Bank works with non profits all over the county to provide new and used furniture to families in need.  Since learning about NWFB, WPP Realtors have held fundraisers, assembled furniture, helped families pick out items for their homes, and loaded furniture into moving trucks to deliver right to people’s homes.

“After a few volunteer days there, we can not say enough about the great things Northwest Furniture Bank does for our community,” says Kevin. “And the fact that we are able to help Bill and his team in those efforts is something all of us at WPP feel good about.”

The check for $9,000 came from The Windermere Foundation. The Windermere Foundation was created in 1989 as a grassroots effort by local Windermere Realtors to serve families in need in Washington State.  Over the past 20+ years the foundation has grown to include every single Windermere office in America.   Over the past 20 years, the foundation has organized donations for more than $21 million dollars to provide shelter, clothing, children’s programs, emergency assistance and other services to those in our communities who need help the most.

Every single home that is sold by a Windermere Realtor includes a donation to the Windermere Foundation, which then goes on to support projects all over the country.
