Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to The Children’s Book Bank
This $1,875 Donation will Provide 1,125 Books to 75 Children
Portland, Ore.—March 18, 2013—Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc. (CCRGI) presented a check at it’s Portland Heights branch to the Children’s Book Bank, a nonprofit organization located in Northeast Portland that brings books to children in low-income neighborhoods.
The Children’s Book Bank will use the $1,875 in funds to provide 75 children from Hazelwood Head Start with 16 books each. Providing books to children in this demographic promotes literacy, helping close the educational gap between children from middle-income and low-income backgrounds.

In addition to helping The Children’s Book Bank, the associates also 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.
