Windermere Real Estate Helping the Community One Stitch at a Time!

Windermere agents from the 5 local offices joined forces to deliver over 360 cloth masks and 185 face shields to local food banks, senior living facilities and the Sheriff’s Office. With help from Bellingham Makerspace, a volunteer non-profit which organized material acquisition and Lithtex Northwest which cut the polycarbonate clear sheets, agents assembled the face shields and sewed masks for donation.
“Our agents wanted to help our community during this COVID pandemic and particularly, those organizations which have seen the greatest need for PPEs” said Rob Washburn, one of the owners of Windermere Whatcom. “The response from these organizations was so overwhelmingly positive and the need still so great, our agents have decided to continue to sew and assemble the PPEs.” Donations went to the food banks in Ferndale, Blaine, Everson and the Lummi Reservation, the Sheriff’s Office in Whatcom County and senior living facilities at Shuksan, Stafholt Good Samaritan, Lynden Manor.
