From now until December 16, Windermere offices in Portland are collecting warm blankets and coats. Drop off at any office listed here OR I’m happy to pick it up.
From our friends at First American Title, click here for an interactive map with all the details.
It's the time of year when there's an even greater need for coats and blankets. Windermere's Share the Warmth Coat & Blanket Drive is under way and my office (825 NE Multnomah St. on the ground floor) is a drop off point, BUT if it's better for you, contact me and I'll come and pick up your donation.
If you'd like to directly help families suffering from the current wildfire epidemic in the Northwest, this link to the Windermere Foundation will send 100% of your donation to local organizations in the area you designate or to your billing zip code: http://www.windermere.com/blogs/windermere/posts/the-windermere-foundation-wildfire-fund
Sometimes trees die or outlive their location. It's unfortunate, but true. But before you fire up the chain saw, be sure to check with your city. Many require permits and there are fines for cutting without. City of Portland permit is $25 but the fine can be $1,000. Also consider leaving the whole job to a professional. This is one of those jobs that may look simpler than it really is.
