Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Teams “Give a Day Away” Through Volunteer Service in Oregon and Washington
More than 200 real estate brokers and employees from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Real Estate Professionals partnered with local schools and community service providers in Oregon and Washington to give back to their communities on Saturday, October, 1. From the Seattle metro area through Roseburg in southern Oregon, volunteers worked with 14 different service organizations during their annual “Give a Day Away” community service event.
Workers’ collective efforts resulted in projects such as fence building, home repair, landscaping, painting and other general maintenance projects at family shelters, transitional housing, schools and a community garden. In addition, multiple teams collected food and contributed their time at local food banks, resulting in the collection of more than $3,100 in cash and over 2,800 pounds of food.
“Together we made a significant difference in the lives of so many on Saturday,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate president and CEO, Jason Waugh. “I deeply appreciate the efforts of those employees and real estate professionals who donated their time to the local community.”
In addition to the volunteer work, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate also donated $2,500 to the Home Builders Foundation, a nonprofit organization that builds and renovates shelters and transitional housing for those experiencing homelessness in Oregon.
In the midst of a brisk real estate market in July and August, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate agents throughout Oregon and Washington participated in a listing competition designed to raise funds for some of the charitable groups the company supports. The big winners of the contest were the Sunshine Kids, Special Olympics and Transitional Youth, all non-profits working to brighten the lives of the youth they serve.
To all of our brokers, a huge “THANK YOU!” In addition to working tirelessly on behalf of your clients, you have generous hearts.

We had quite a day last Saturday when Santa paid a pre-Christmas visit to the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate Newberg branch. Over 40 families and their kiddos had a fun time with Santa and they brought a generous assortment of food for donation to local residents in need of assistance. They collected two 40-gallon barrels of food!
Big thanks to Newberg Managing Principal Broker Ron Schock, photographer Kenneth Bunn, and all the Newberg brokers and local businesses that pitched in to create this fun, community-focused event. Most of all, thank you Santa for making the long trip down from the North Pole!
It’s days like this that make our hearts joyful. Wishing everyone a happy holiday season!
Our recent companywide Give A Day Away volunteer event was a tremendous success, thanks to all of our generous Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate team members who spent last Saturday helping others in our communities.
In partnership with the wonderful folks at Home Builders Foundation-HomeAid Portland, our work crews went to four transitional home sites around the Portland metro area and put their landscaping and yard maintenance skills to work.
Please join us on Monday, September 15th for an afternoon of golf to benefit homeless and at-risk youth served through Transitional Youth, a local non-profit organization founded by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate’s Chairman, Bert Waugh Jr.

It’s sure to be a great day, so please come out and help us raise funds for youth in need. Learn more about Transitional Youth here.
The annual toy drive in our Sandy branch is a HUGE success!
As they have done for over thirty years, the wonderful brokers and staff in our Sandy branch office held their annual toy drive to help make the holidays brighter for local children. They invite their clients and business partners — the whole community really — to their annual Open House party and ask that everyone bring a toy. The brokers supply the food (and more toys) and as you can see in the photo, it was a tremendous success once again!
Local Kiwanis members pick up the bounty and distribute it with food baskets to families in the area that could use a little help. They typically put about 400 food boxes together, and because they have information on file about the families (size, number of kids, etc.) they are able to do a great job of matching appropriate toys to a wide range of kids.
To everyone in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate Sandy office, a big THANK YOU for supporting your community. You make us proud!
