Windermere Real Estate/Sequim-East representatives last week announced the recent donation of $1,500 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula through the Windermere Foundation.

Each time a Windermere agent helps a client buy or sell a home, a portion of their commission is donated to the Windermere Foundation, the company said.

“The foundation’s goal is to provide financial assistance through nonprofit organizations that benefit low-income and homeless families,” Windermere representatives said.

In 2019, the Sequim and Port Angeles Boys & Girls Club units served 1,258 youth members and 2,945 youth through outreach programs. The clubs kept their doors open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, setting up remote learning support centers, providing free wi-fi and delivering 54,000 free ,healthy meals to low-income families.

The club’s mission is “to enable and inspire all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
