Community Fund Food Bank Donation

goodcheerfoodbankEvery year, Coldwell Banker Tara Properties’ Agents contribute a portion of their commissions through the company’s “Community Fund” to people in need and to community agencies and schools on Whidbey Island.

Pictured here is Gail Pierce, a broker in our Bayview office, delivering a check to the Good Cheer Food Bank to help them meet the needs of our community.


Community Fund Gives to Good Cheer Food Bank

Gail Pierce, on behalf of the Coldwell Banker Tara Properties’ Community Fund, presents a $500 check to Shawn Nowlin, the Community Outreach Coordinator of the Good Cheer Food Bank. The Community fund contributed to all three Whidbey Island food banks in December as well as Helping Hand, the Senior Center, Readiness to Learn Foundation, and Big Brothers and Sisters of Island County among others.

Coldwell Banker Tara Properties’ Community Fund is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2014. They have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to scholarships, non-profit agencies, and families in need over the years. Part of every commission earned goes to finance the Community Fund which in turn is used to donate to worthy Whidbey Island groups and individuals.

Coldwell Banker Tara Properties is a Winner!

The Winning Entry

From the Good Cheer blog—-The winner of the 2011 Deck the Doors contest was Coldwell Banker Tara Properties on Second Street in Langley. Janet Ploof from the Main Street Association said that the $960 donation to the food bank  from this year’s winner was significant and that  “a sizable portion of the donation came from the individual real estate agents in their office, their door was cool, a wreath made of house keys, decorated miniature doors and blue prints! Some of the agents were born on Whidbey Island, and all of the agents are super supporters of Langley…..they rock!”

Great job everyone (especially Kim Kramer and Gail Pierce)!
