Windermere Professional Partners Donates $10,409 to Multicare Treehouse
We here at WPP are excited to announce that our agents have raised $10,409 to donate to the Multicare Treehouse, a 43 unit apartment building that has been converted into free housing for out of area families with sick children. The Treehouse is a facility for families whose children are being treated at Tacoma General’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Mary Bridge’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Treehouse ensures families of sick children don’t have to worry about where they will sleep, eat, shower, and care for the other children in their family while their child is being treated at the hospital.
Windermere Professional Partners has been involved with Treehouse for years and recently completed a $50,000 donation which resulted in a room named after the late founding partner of WPP, Wally Starkey. This latest contribution is from funds raised in the Windermere Professional Partners office combined with funds from the Windermere Foundation.
“In addition to raising money for this great resource, we have volunteered to prepare dinner for the guests that are staying with their loved ones at the hospital,” says Windermere General Manager and Owner Kevin Mullin. “Being able to support an organization that helps people when they are experiencing the grief of an ill loved one is something that although difficult, feels right.”
The Windermere Foundation was created by Windermere Real Estate to support assistance programs for low-income and homeless families in each of our communities throughout the West. What started in 1989 as a grassroots foundation serving families in need in Washington state, has grown to ten states and has raised over $23 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.
Every time a Windermere Realtor sells a home, a portion of the commission goes to the Windermere Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1989. Contributions from Windermere agents combined with contributions from Windermere employees and public supporters have allowed the Windermere Foundation to distribute over two million dollars annually in recent years to non-profit agencies dedicated to helping homeless and low-income families.
