Windermere Homes & Estates has donated $15,000 to Feeding San Diego’s COVID-19 Response Fund in an effort to help tackle hunger in San Diego communities during the pandemic. Thanks to a challenge match, Scott Cook and Singe Otsby matched the $15,000 donation, making it a total of $30,000. With this donation and more from local communities, Feeding San Diego is able to provide more that 665,000 meals every week during the crisis.
Windermere Homes & Estates and Feeding San Diego have partnered several times in the past to deliver nutritious foods to individuals in need across San Diego county. This partnership began because of the alignment in each organization’s core pillars: community outreach. Windermere’s 2019 community service day was at Feeding San Diego’s warehouse where real estate agents and their families helped sort reclaimed food for redistribution. With 8 hours of service and a $15,000 donation, Windermere helped feed 63,000 people for that week.
Feeding San Diego is the leading hunger relief charity in the community and continues to work towards providing nutritious food to thousands of families, students, seniors, military families, veterans and people facing homelessness.
Chief of Development and Marketing Officer, Gavon Morris, says “Together, we are meeting the difficult and unique challenges of this pandemic, lifting our community, and providing our neighbors with the resources they need and value.”
Windermere strives to keep communities thriving and dreams moving forward, finding new ways to come together to support families and children in need. Windermere is looking forward to this continued partnership with Feeding San Diego.
The Windermere Foundation donates a portion of the proceeds from every home purchased or sold using a Windermere agent towards supporting low-income and homeless families in local communities. In addition to a financial donation, Windermere donates a day of service to local communities in need; helping to build and support thriving communities.
