Windermere Foundation Presents Funding
to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation
This $2,500 Donation will Help Provide Lodging
to Families that Travel to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital for Care
PORTLAND, Ore. —January 21, 2014— Windermere Cronin & Caplan Realty Group, Inc. recently presented a check at its southwest Portland Heights branch to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation, also located in southwest Portland.
Forty-nine percent of patients at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital do not reside locally. This $2,500 donation will provide lodging for families that travel to Portland for specialized care. Access to comfortable and convenient housing will eliminate unnecessary stress so that families can focus on healing.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation, 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 $2.2 million to programs that support low-income and homeless families in the Portland metro and north Oregon Coast area.
