Dedicates Annual Community Service Project to ACCESS Food Bank
MEDFORD, Ore. — May 19, 2017 — Windermere Van Vleet and Associates is getting a head start on Windermere Real Estate’s annual Community Service Day, held on June 9 this year. The local group is teaming up with ACCESS Food Bank to feed Jackson County’s hungry with the help of a food drive, running May 15 – June 1.
Since 1976, ACCESS has been helping Jackson County residents break the cycle of poverty with programs designed to stabilize their basic needs and provide opportunities for long-term prosperity. The public can help in two easy steps:
- Fill bags with these suggested food items:
- Canned Foods (fruits, vegetables, beans, soup, chili, stews, tuna fish, salmon, chicken, broths)
- Grains (pasta, oatmeal, rice, quinoa, cereal, granola bars, crackers, popcorn)
- Non-perishables (peanut butter, nuts, trail mix, shelf-stable milk, olive or canola oil, honey, applesauce, juice boxes, dried fruits, spaghetti sauce)
- Bags of food can be dropped off at one of the four Jackson County Windermere offices on June 1 from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., or a pickup can be scheduled with an agent:
Eagle Point 10558 Highway 62, Suite B2
Medford 1117 E Jackson St.
Jacksonville 505 North 5th St.
Ashland 375 Lithia Way
Windermere brokers will deliver the donations to ACCESS headquarters in Medford as a part of Community Service Day on June 2.
Each year, Windermere Real Estate brokers, managers, owners and staff from 300 offices across the Western United States gather together to devote their workday to making positive changes in the neighborhoods they serve through local projects and volunteerism. Established 33 years ago, Windermere’s annual Community Service Day has been recognized nationally as a model hands-on volunteer program and has been adopted by other real estate companies and businesses around the country.
