Warm Toes and Warm Hearts

On November 16, attendees from selected Spokane area schools, Anna Ogden Hall, a women’s shelter, and Family Promise, a homeless transition program, were able to select boots at the Windermere Annual Boots & Gloves event. This event has been put on each year since 1999, through a long standing partnership with Windermere and Big 5 Sporting Goods. At the event, 119 pairs of boots were selected and 114 packages of socks were distributed to those who attended.

Agents from all the Spokane area Windermere offices were there to assist the kids while they picked out their boots and a package of socks.
