Over the past couple weeks Windermere Real Estate has been quietly serving the Quincy Valley, but it is not their first and won’t be their last time doing so.
On June 11, members from Windermere’s Quincy and Ephrata offices worked together to clean up George Community Hall. They raked and swept up leaves and debris off the sidewalks and grass, and pulled weeds in anticipation of George’s annual 4th of July celebration coming up.
“We love supporting Debby Kooy who does so much for the city,” Deb Adams said of George Community Hall’s Event Director.
The following week, the Quincy Windermere office donated a check of $1,400 to Serve Quincy, through the Windermere Foundation, to help the families affected by the Birch Street Apartments fire a couple months ago.
Windermere Real Estate has been doing service projects and donations every year. Last year they donated a freezer to Serve Quincy and had members volunteer hours there as well. They have also served the Grant County Museum, Ephrata Senior Center and Ephrata Senior Thrift Store, among others.
Their service has not completely gone unnoticed though. Adams and Tom Parrish received a Lifetime Achievement Award for their dedicated service at Quincy Valley Chamber’s Business after hours on June 17.
“We want to give back and this is a small way,” Adams said.
