Danforth in the Community has been BUSY!!

Habitiat

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!!

On June 23rd, a team of volunteers gathered on a rainy day at the Woods at Golden Given to help prepare the foundation for a future Habitat home. This was our fourth year building in this community. It is amazing to see how the neighborhood has come together and to see families living in the homes we have helped build over the years. Thank you team!

WALL OF HOPE

Thank you Jack and Vicki Angus for representing Danforth in the Community at the Pierce County Habitat for Humanity’s raising of the Wall of Hope this past Saturday. As a long time sponsor of Habitat, we were given a 2X6 stud to write messages for a future Habitat homeowner. At our awards banquet this past February, our brokers covered this board with messages of hope and encouragement. On June 25th, this board became a permanent part of a future Habitat homeowner’s house. Thank you to all of you who took a moment to write a message and to Jack and Vicki Angus who represented Danforth in the Community at the Raising the Wall of Hope event.

BIKE HELMET GIVEAWAY

Danforth in the Community was able to donate bike helmets to the students in Mrs. Keiser’s 5th grade class at Olympic View Elementary School.  The counselor and teacher work together to do a safety program every Friday for the class. They talk about all sorts of issues and this spring, they were focusing on road safety. As they talked, they discovered that only three of the twenty-eight students in her class owned a helmet!  Olympic View is a Title 1 school, which means that all the families receive free and reduced breakfast and lunch and a vast majority of the students come from families in poverty.  The teacher coordinated a visit from a Washington State Patrol Officer, Doug Clevenger, and, thanks to Coldwell in the Community, surprised the kids with their new helmets!  Many of the kids jumped up and cheered when the helmets were brought out and they were very enthusiastic about getting them fitted properly and making sure that they were wearing them correctly.

CBD teams up with Rebuilding Together Seattle!

Thank you to our amazing group of volunteers who came out to help with our recent work day with Rebuilding Together Seattle on October 14th. The team used funds raised at the golf tournament this past August to help the homeowner declutter outside, keeping her yard clear and safe, and made other accessibility and safety improvements that will help prevent accidents and injuries. Thank you so much to all of the volunteers and also to all of you who supported the golf tournament this year.

Danforth in the Community’s 4th Annual Golf Tournament

Thank you to all of you who turned out for Danforth in the Community’s 4th annual charity golf tournament

72 golfers of all skill levels came out to support this year’s charity, Rebuilding Together Seattle. A big THANK YOU to all of our event sponsors for helping make this event possible and such a success!

This year we were able to raise $4090 for our build with Rebuilding Together Seattle.

Thank You Volunteers!

THANK YOU to our wonderful group of staff volunteers who helped stuff 2,100 backpacks with school supplies for the Angle Lake Back to School Resource Fair that took place on August 13th. Danforth in the Community was also an event sponsor for this event. Over 3,500 adults and children attended the event and 1,700 K-12 backpacks filled with school supplies were handed out, over 100 free haircuts were provided and 127 dental checks were performed.

CBD in The Community and Northwest Harvest

THANK YOU to all who volunteered with Northwest Harvest!

Together we packaged approximately 5,700 lbs of rice at our event on May 30th. This is enough to provide 4,385 meals to those in need in our state. Great work everyone!

Thank You to All Who Volunteered at the Emergency Feeding Program

On March 21st, our team of 15 volunteers put together 60 food packs (enough to provide 1,900 meals)at the Emergency Feeding Program warehouse in Renton. 1 in 5 WA state households do not have enough money to feed their families. EFP’s mission is that no one goes hungry. The EFP supplies about 2,000 packs of food per month to over 180 agencies throughout Seattle and King County. These packs are designed to provide emergency food assistance for anyone who needs it; no one is turned away. They have 15 different food packs to meet a wide range of dietary needs. EFP has been in operation since 1977. To learn more, please visit: www.emergencyfeeding.org.

CBD at Northwest Harvest

Combined, we collected 1,480 pounds of food and enough funds to provide 2,454 meals to families in need. In addition to the funds collected during the food drive, Danforth in the Community presented a check for $2,000 to NW Harvest at our volunteer day on December 10th. These funds will provide 9,090 meals. The volunteer team that went down to the NW Harvest Warehouse packaged up 10,000 pounds of oats; the volunteer coordinator said she had never seen a group pack that many pounds of oats – great job team. These oats will provide 7,692 meals throughout the state. So, all together, through your efforts and generosity over 30,000 meals will be provided to hungry families in Washington State. Great work everyone!! The response was overwhelming, and the real winners are the hungry families who will be so blessed by the food and funds collected this year. FYI… Northgate ended up collecting the most with 1,146 pounds of food!

Not In Our House!

We will not stop fighting until every household can say Breast Cancer is “Not in Our House!”

CB Danforth has lots of reasons to promote awareness and bring about a cure for breast cancer during the month of October. Not only do we have current brokers that are battling this disease but we also have survivors that have gone through this painful and life changing experience. This issue is close to home and we decided that we need to take action and really put forth the effort to help find a cure.

This October we plan on doing a number of promotional collaterals to not only get the word out but to also raise funds of which 100% will go to LOCAL charities.
