On Friday, June 15, 2012, Windermere Real Estate staff and agents spent the morning sorting and repacking 7,000 pounds of frozen soup - enough for 5,385 meals at the Shoreline-based warehouse Food Lifeline.

Every year Windermere closes its offices for one day to help make a positive difference in local communities. It started in 1984 when a handful of Windermere owners and agents came together to make repairs at a Seattle-area elementary school. Nearly three decades and more than 800,000 hours of community service later, Windermere has continued this tradition through neighborhood-enhancing projects in the areas where Windermere teams live, work, and play.

Food Lifeline is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in Western Washington. Food Lifeline makes every penny count, and 94% of the food they receive from local, state and national contributors is donated. Last year, Food Lifeline distributed more than 35 million pounds of food – the equivalent of more than 27 million meals – to feed hungry people throughout Western Washington. 

There are many ways to volunteer as in individual or group at Food Lifeline. One convenient way is to join the Food Lifeline Volunteer Team for a “last minute” Save the Day volunteer session. Typically, volunteer sessions fill up 3 to 4 weeks in advance, but occasionally there are last minute opportunities. Volunteers are notified by email, making sign-up easy.
