The Joy of Giving

Though all of us contribute to our communities in different ways throughout the year, the holidays often illuminate the impact of extending simple gifts to others. That was the case when some of our branch offices reached out in the spirit of giving.

Our Hillsboro, Scappoose and Netarts branch offices collectively adopted a family through the local VA Clinic and Managing Principal Broker George Huertas shared this heartwarming story…

A local former soldier (a single dad with two children) didn’t know how he was going to (1) feed his children a Christmas meal, and (2) have any gifts for his 17 and 12 year old children. When the VA social worker approached them with our offer the father was ecstatic, as he was worried about providing any gifts for the children and told the social worker that he wanted us to just take care of the kids, not him.Holiday tree

The gift requests from the kids included some clothes, a xbox game, and if possible a laptop computer for the daughter who would be hopefully attending college next year. The Dad made no request for himself. After some digging by an astute social worker, he found that the Dad could use some gloves. Fortunately, our Pru crew was able to deliver enough food for several Christmas meals, six xbox games, a $500 Fred Meyer gift card, a laptop computer, and a new pair of gloves for Dad.

“The former soldier walked with a noticeable limp and was so appreciative,” says George. “He and I exchanged a few words as he fought back tears, which ultimately, was a battle he couldn’t win.”

In Longview, the Prudential Northwest Properties team delivered lovingly wrapped “Holiday Care Packages” for homeless and at-risk youth served through Transitional Youth. Each box contained items such as hand warmers, a hat & gloves, toothbrushes & toothpaste, socks, hot cocoa & hot cider packs, lip balm and granola bars; every day things we take for granted, but that a homeless youth would cherish.

These kinds of stories are what make the holidays so joyful. Thanks to everyone who played a role in brightening the holidays for others.

Wishing you a healthy and very happy new year from all of us at Prudential Northwest Properties!


Amber Gilley Works Toward Creating Local Veteran’s Memorial

Amber Gilley

Amber Gilley

Amber, a broker in our Hillsboro branch office, was inspired to establish a veterans memorial in Cornelius after her friend Kenny Leisten was killed in Iraq in 2004. She and her supporters have been actively pursuing the cause, and the City Council recently voted to rename Arboretum Park to Veterans Memorial Park. Now Amber and other park supporters are trying to raise enough money to fund the installation of a permanent memorial at the park. Community support has been growing swiftly and fundraising plans are well underway to bring in the estimated $7,000 – $12,000 needed.

Amber is organizing a Spaghetti Dinner & Silent Auction on April 12 at the Forest Grove Armory. To learn more about this fundraiser, or to support this endeavor, please contact her at 503-481-1615 or email Amber@ambergilley.com.

Amber, we appreciate your dedication to this wonderful cause and to your community as a whole. We’re proud to have you on the Prudential Northwest Properties team!
