Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to
Candlelighters for Children with Cancer
This $2,000 Donation will Allow Candlelighters for Children with Cancer
to Continue to Assist Families with Basic Needs during this Challenging Time
PORTLAND, Ore. — August 8, 2013 — Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc. presented a check at its Lake Oswego branch to Candlelighters for Children with Cancer (Candlelighters), a nonprofit organization that provides support for local families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer.
This $2,000 donation will be dedicated to the Emergency Funds Program, which provides families with up to $400 per calendar year to pay for basic needs like rent, utilies, gas, or food. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, many families experience financial crisis. Candlelighters is there to support them both financially, through the Emergency Funds Program, but also emotionally through numerous programs, including family activities and camps, support groups, bereavement services, and scholarships.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Candlelighters for Children with Cancer, Windermere associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation — a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $1,000,000 to programs that support low-income and homeless families in the Portland metro and north Oregon Coast area.
