One of our core values as a company is to give back from our abundance into our community. Supporting organizations with our time, skills and monetary donations is normal business for us. We give to give, because it feels good to do so and because we think it is the right thing to do. In this month’s newsletter we share about three organizations we love to support: Beer & Bites, Next Chapter and Landlord Liaison Program.
We all know that while much of our world has “paused” and we have adapted our every day lives through the first part of 2020, this “pause” simply isn’t an option for cancer patients. In fact, cancer patients always live a protected life to ward off viruses and other illnesses that could harm their already weak (compromised) immune system. And getting out for treatment during a massive pandemic threatens their health in ways we simply can’t understand.
We support Beer & Bites each year with monetary donations and attendance at their events. This year’s event is virtual. Learn more about how to support this great organization here.
Do you know a single mother struggling to find affordable housing? We do. That’s why we support Next Chapter, an organization that provides job skills, financial planning and housing options to women and families in need of a hand up from difficult circumstances. You can hear a discussion about our partnership with them here – Mark and Kathryn Hedrick, their founder talk about what they do and how you can get involved.
The Landlord Liaison Program
The Landlord Liaison Program is an innovative program serving Pierce County, that provides support to Property Managers/Owners who work with Housing Agencies that help the homeless. This support is provided through a partnership with LLP that enables the Property Managers/Owners to become eligible for all of the benefits this program has to offer. Spinnaker’s leader Mark Melsness teaches a Renter’s Readiness course at Landlord Liaison Program and sees it as his honor to support this win-win affordable housing option for owners and renters. Learn more on their website.
