Windermere holds coat, blanket drive

Donate now through Dec. 19


In partnership with local non-profit organizations, Windermere Real Estate offices throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington are hosting their annual “Share the Warmth” coat and blanket drive.

Community members are invited to take part and help their neighbors in need this winter by donating coats and blankets.

In the Portland area, Transition Projects, Inc. will distribute the coats and blankets to men and women living on the streets of Portland and in local shelters. The organization, which helps people in Portland find permanent housing, estimates that over the past 10 years, a total of more than 35,000 items have been donated during the “Share the Warmth” coat and blanket drive.

“At a minimum, we know that we’ve touched thousands of lives with just this campaign,” said Tony Bernal, development director at Transition Projects, noting that several other local businesses throughout the Portland metro area also serve as donation drop-off locations each year.

Now through Dec. 19, community members can bring new or gently used and laundered adult-sized coats and twin-sized blankets to any of the following Portland-area Windermere offices, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Community members should call the offices directly for weekend drop-off hours. Local drop off locations include:

n Lake Oswego, 220 A Avenue, Suite 200 (503-636-5000)

n Lake Oswego West, 3689 Carman Drive, Lake Oswego (503-675-8264)

n West Linn, 21900 Willamette Drive, Suite 202 (503-557-0707)

More than 30 Windermere offices in Oregon and Southwest Washington are collecting coats and blankets for those in need this winter. For a complete list of participating offices, call 503-220-1145 or visit windermere.com.
