Annual drive provides winter necessities for the most vulnerable people in the Vancouver community
VANCOUVER — As the coldest months of the year approach, brokers from Windermere Real Estate are teaming up to Share the Warmth and help provide winter necessities for those in need. As part of the annual campaign, the Windermere office in Vancouver will be collecting donations from November 8 to December 20 to benefit Share House. The organization is specifically asking for new or gently used blankets and coats in all sizes.
Those who want to help can stop by participating Windermere offices to drop off donations. The Windermere office in Vancouver, located at 1401 SE 164th Ave. Suite 190, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Here is a full list of all drop-off locations.
“Year after year, Share the Warmth brings together Windermere Real Estate brokers and caring community members to ensure our neighbors are well-equipped for winter,” said Scott Mitchelson, president of Windermere Services Company in Oregon and SW Washington. “This campaign is one of the many ways our brokers are collectively committed to helping the communities they serve.”
