Windermere Foundation Donates to Seashore Family Literacy

With a portion of every Windermere sale donated to the the Windermere foundation, the owners of Windermere West Coast Properties and Real Estate Gallery have committed a yearlong effort to support the Seashore Family Literacy program. On February 21, 2013 the Windermere Foundation presented Seashore Family Literacy with another generous donation to help support their Achievement Club after-school program.

Seashore Family Literacy is a community-based, nonprofit organization and inspires both children and adults — really the entire family — to improve reading, writing, math, computer skills and promote better communication skills.

Sentilia McKinley is the founder and strongly believes that literacy plays an import part in everyone’s lives. For over more than 20 years, her program has served hundreds of people, including low-income, at-risk and homeless children, young adults and their families.  Literacy helps to improve self esteem, job opportunities, and the pursuit of continuing education. What might surprise you is how much benefit the volunteers report receiving from their time as mentors!

Seashore Family Literacy is truly a wonderful charity and well worth consideration of your donation dollars. The owners of Windermere West Coast Properties and Real Estate Gallery invite and encourage other business owners to join in supporting this program whose work has such a lasting impact.
