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.
