Happy Holidays


Target Kids Shopping Day

Every year, the owners of our office (and several other Windermere offices) sponsor a holiday benefit for local kids that might not have enough resources to buy their family gifts. Agents and staff from the offices meet at 8:00am on a Saturday in early December at the Factoria Target store. Each child gets a $175 gift card to buy gifts for their family. Then the gifts are wrapped and tagged while they visit Santa, munch on snacks and make holiday crafts. The agents and staff help the kids with their shopping, wrap the presents, then deliver them back to the family to take home and put under the tree. It’s such a fun event– nothing like hundreds of real estate brokers and staff gathering together with tons of holiday spirit. At this year’s event  over 100 kids were treated to a fun morning and our whole family had a great time participating. A huge thank you to the Deasy organization for hosting this great event each year.

There are lots of ways to get involved with charity events this holiday season and beyond. Here are a few ideas:
