As part of Windermere Real Estate’s company-wide Community Service Day, Windermere Distinctive Homes International associates volunteered June 18 at Camp Galilee.
Each year Windermere Real Estate agents and staff from more than 200 offices around the West gather their tools and tackle a daylong project to make improvements in their local communities.
This year volunteers from Windermere Distinctive Homes International built a children’s playground at Camp Galilee. Lisa Peterson with Wells Fargo Private Mortgage Banking also volunteered her time to help with the construction. John Mason, candidate for Nevada Supreme Court Justice, generously donated the playground equipment. Paul Friederici with Alpine Carpet One donated indoor/outdoor carpet for the playground area. Woodchips provided by Tahoe Sand and Gravel were placed around the play area.
Windermere’s Community Service Day was established in 1984 to offer agents and staff a chance to volunteer an entire workday to give back to the neighborhoods in which they live and work. Windermere’s Community Service Day has been recognized nationally as a model hands-on volunteer program and has been adopted by other real estate companies and businesses around the country.
