Fishline Celebrates December's Community Partner: Windermere Real Estate

Windermere Realty has three local offices -- one in Poulsbo, Kingston, and Silverdale.  Each of these offices has made a commitment to serve their local community, a kind of unspoken corporate responsibility that makes them a perfect example of what being a community partner is all about. 

For several years now Windermere Real Estate has helped organize the Forest Hills Rock neighborhood food drive.  This annual food drive, which typically tops itself every year, kicks off the holiday food drive season.  This year the Windermere offices decided to also have a little friendly competition between their Kingston, Poulsbo, and Silverdale offices -- with the local food banks benefiting. Over 4300 lbs of food has been collected since just a little bit before Thanksgiving, with 2500 lbs of that going to Fishline.

During the week of Thanksgiving, Windermere delivered 50 turkeys to Fishline (and another 100 to food banks in Kingston and Silverdale!).  In lieu of a Christmas party this year, the employees of the Poulsbo office decided to donate the money that would have been spent on their festive annual get together to several important organizations, including Fishline.  Employees of Windermere happily delivered a check for $1500 right after Thanksgiving. 

Mike Pitts, one of the owners of Windermere, explains in the interview above, how everyone in the office jumps at the opportunity to be involved in the community.  "People feel good about working with Fishline...they'll do what they say they're going to do.”  And we feel good about businesses like Windermere!

In addition to their nonstop work during the holidays, the Windermere Foundation has helped keep families in their homes through grants and other funding awarded to Fishline. Thank you to all the Windermere offices for all that you do -- your owners, your realtors, and your staff are much appreciated by all in the North Kitsap community! 

Windermere Poulsbo is located at 18570 Hwy 305 in Poulsbo.  You can visit their website here and their Facebook page here
