Windermere helps local resident with home project


Windermere agents and brokers install a new wheelchair ramp and clean up the yard of disabled homeowner

   On Friday, June 19, agents and brokers of Windermere Woodinville stopped everything and picked up paint brushes, tools, weedeater and more to participate in the Windermere organization's annual community service day project.
   Thirty persons donated approximately 150 hours to restore the landscaping of the home of a local Woodinville resident who is physically unable to provide complete care for the property.
   Part of the project included the extension of a wheelchair ramp to facilitate movement from the home to the yard. Windermere's people completed extensive brush removal, shrub trimming, and flower planting, as well as barking of exposed beds around the perimeter of the yard. Aside from a couple of bee stings, the Windermere team enjoyed themselves helping others in the community.
   This annual project is in its 14th year. More than 450,000 hours have been donated since its inception. The Windermere Foundation is committed to helping the homeless and low-income families in the Northwest through emergency rent and utility assistance and donations to social services.
   Washington Mutual, TransNation Title Insurance and Home Depot contributed to Windermere's project.
