Congratulations on this wonderful accomplishment, Kim!

Giving back to our communities is an integral part of the Prudential Northwest Properties culture. It’s what we do throughout the year. Now that the holiday season is upon us, the Pru crew has stepped up our giving even more. In addition to McMinnville and West Portland’s huge donations of Love Boxes for the soldiers overseas, here’s what a few of our other branches are doing to help their communities…
Hillsboro Branch Adopting a Family for the Holidays! The Hillsboro Branch has adopted the Anderson Family which consists of Mom, Dad and 2 boys, one with autism. Dad was recently laid off. Thank you Hillsboro Branch for giving back to the community and helping those in need!
Damascus and Clackamas Branches Provided Toys to Kids in Need! They collectively raised over $1,000 and then purchased and wrapped holiday gifts for 74 kids at the Annie Ross House (the only shelter in Clackamas County that accommodates entire families) and Clackamas County Women’s Shelter holiday party. Thanks to all the members of both branches for carrying on this annual project spearheaded by Amy Nelson!
Scappoose Branch Donating and Giving Back! The Holiday Spirit is strong at Prudential Northwest Properties! Many thanks and kudos to the Scappoose Branch in donating money to Toy & Joy, as well as giving money and food items to Columbia Pacific Food Bank. A special nod goes to Lisa Frahm and her daughters for braving the cold as Salvation Army bell ringers at Fred Meyer. Thank you, Scappoose!
Metro Branch Reaches Out to Seniors this Holiday Season … The branch is “adopting” several seniors at the Rainbow Adult Living Center and will be providing gifts to brighten their holiday season. Thank you, Metro!
Columbia Tech Center Wraps for Transitional Youth this weekend! Chad and the gang from CTC are gift wrapping at the Westfield shopping center on the 13th and proceeds go to Transitional Youth. Thanks, CTC!
Sandy Branch is holding their 29th Annual Toy Drive! The longstanding tradition of collection toys for kids in need carries on in the Sandy community. They also shipped off many Love Boxes to the troops overseas. Thank you, Sandy Santas!
Food for the Hungry in Central Oregon – Thanks to all of our Central Oregon agents for participating in the Crook County Realtor’s Christmas party and food drive for St Vincent D’Paul. They contributed over $800, and every dollar donated purchased 7 lbs of food. In total, they were able to provide over 5,600 lbs of food which will help feed about 90 families. Our offices provided over 700 lbs of food. Excellent job, Central Oregon crew!
Prudential Northwest Properties’ Clark County NW Realtor Linda McClellan was installed as the 2010 board president of the Clark County Association of Realtors during the group’s annual installation and awards luncheon yesterday at the Heathman Lodge. McClellan was sworn in with four new officers and 10 board members who will preside over the association next year. The group will focus on lobbying efforts on behalf of the industry, said McClellan, who foresees a better year for local home sellers in 2010. In Clark County, home sales have made year-over-year gains since June, although sales are still off from peak years in 2005-07. “It would be really nice to see this trend continue,” McClellan said.
Linda joins these Prudential Northwest Properties brokers in leadership of their local REALTOR Associations during the 2010 term: David Tangvald, GRI – Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors, Lisa Frahm – Columbia County Board of Realtors. Thanks to all of these pros for giving back to our industry!
Prudential Northwest Properties got extensive exposure in Pamplin Media Group’s recent special publication Realtors Make Things Happen.
Bert’s motivational and philanthropic endeavors were featured (page 4), along with Rob Levy’s progressive use of technology (page 12), and the value of the current and accurate market data in our Property Investment Profile, Market Tracker and HomeFinder Pro consumer reports (page 14).
Prudential Northwest Properties is sponsoring the Prineville Realtors Quarterly Meeting today from 4:00pm – 6:00pm at the Meadow Lakes Restaurant at the golf course. This is a fund raiser to aid St Vincent de Paul’s efforts to provide more than 3,000 food baskets to those in need in Crook County this holiday season. A donation of $10 will purchase 70 lbs of food toward this goal.
Thanks to Bob McClung and the super Central Oregon team for supporting those in need.
KOIN News Channel 6 came to the West Portland office to tape a segment about their “LOVE BOX for the Holidays” drive for the Troops in Iraq. They had a ‘packing party’ on Monday and KOIN News came to the office to cover the event. Thanks to the efforts and coordination of Lynne McIntyre, they adopted 26 soldiers for the holidays and packed care boxes for them. They were also able to provide regulation helmet liners that were handmade by a few of our agents, and Nike donated 26 dry-fit shirts! Rothana Mao, West Portland’s receptionist, was key in facilitating the drive. Her husband is stationed in Iraq and he was instrumental in getting us shirt sizes, wish lists, etc.
Thanks West Portland, for coming together in support of this wonderful effort!
