Windermere Keeps Seniors Cool

In partnership with The Nightingale Society of the Visiting Nurse Association of the Inland Counties’ Fan Drive, Windermere Real Estate Southern California pitched in for the second year in a row to gather and distribute over 200 fans to one of the Valley’s populations most impacted by the summer heat.

“We know that we’re facing brutal heat right now. We’re hoping this makes an immediate impact in seniors’ lives,” said Charlie White, Managing Broker for Windermere’s Indian Wells office.

As outside temperatures reached close to 118 degrees, agents worked feverishly to distribute fans to the Coachella, Indio, Joslyn, La Quinta and Mizell Senior Centers. In addition to the fans, Windermere Real Estate also delivered a $1,000 check from the Windermere Foundation and over $200 in additional agent donations to Karen Mourhess, Development Manager for the VNA.

“Windermere’s support and contributions from last year were instrumental in allowing us to start up this year’s fan drive earlier,” Mourhess continued, “which was perfect since the heat started earlier this year as well.”

The Windermere Foundation provides grants to support assistance programs for low-income and homeless families in each community served by a Windermere office. A portion of every commission a Windermere agent earns goes to the Foundation. Windermere Southern California has gifted over $100,000 to Coachella Valley charities in the past two years alone.

If you would like to make a donation of support to the Fan Drive, contact the local VNA California office at (760) 773-6260 or visit them at www.vnacalifornia.org.
