The Bellingham office has been involved in the Salvation Army Angel Tree for the past several years with the Whatcom County Association of Realtors, but this year Bellingham really wanted to step up and take on the entire project. For the first three weeks of December, Bellingham brokers, staff, and their families donated time, energy, and money at the Angel Tree – even extending the original deadline to accommodate a last minute influx of gift tags, so no child would go without gifts under the tree.
“Everyone loves the experience, and it always gets us into the holiday spirit to see our community come together to help local families. One of our favorite stories was that an entire kindergarten class came in with their teachers to get tags for other children. That class donated over $900 in gifts including a bike. Now that’s the spirit of giving,” said Sunny Lake.
503 local families received assistance
1090 children (4,352 tags)
$124,900 worth of food, clothing, and gifts
our office donated 264 man hours
