Agents from Windermere Real Estate SoCal’s Carlsbad office knocked on doors and distributed empty grocery bags to homes throughout Carlsbad and Oceanside in November. Their goal was to collect as many filled bags as possible to donate to the North County Food Bank and Feeding America San Diego in time for the holiday season. Windermere agents knocked on almost 1,100 doors and collected over 2,300 pounds of food.
“My neighborhood was extremely generous, and I had many people fill up bags in addition to the ones I had left,” said Elizabeth Kaser, Windermere agent who collected over 750 pounds of food from her work in the Spinnaker Hill neighborhood.
Elizabeth had steep competition from Team Gorno’s (a.k.a. Chris and Angelo) work in their Hanover Beach Colony. Agent Amanda Schlegel also hauled in a hefty portion from her work in the Summerwind and Mission Santa Fe neighborhoods. Judy Goldberg hauled in over 300 pounds of non-perishable groceries this year. Judy and Team Gorno were returning participants from last year’s drive.
“At Windermere, community service is something that we encourage at every level of the company. Besides the grants made from the Windermere Foundation and the work we do collectively on our Community Service Days, our agents, brokers and staff take on additional service-based projects that help support a host of area charities and residents. We are proud to recognize the work our agents do on behalf of the communities we serve,” shared Bob Deville, co-owner of Windermere Real Estate SoCal.
