Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Monday, June 10 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
The More The Mary-er
Being one of the many partners of the Seattle Seahawks, Windermere Real Estate was accompanied by two Seahawks icons at their annual community service day on Friday. Seahawks punter Michael Dickson and Legend Marcus Trufant joined the group of Windermere brokers and staff to finish a playground in the backyard of Mary’s Place Family Center in Burien, Washington.
Mary’s Place is a non-profit organization that sets out to provide safe and inclusive shelter and services to support women, children, and families who are battling homelessness. The Burien location is a permanent residence that serves as the home to over 200 family members.
Windermere has held its annual Community Service Day on the first Friday of June since 1989. Every year on this day, 300+ Windermere offices throughout the Western U.S. close their doors for business to volunteer in their local community.
After interacting with the volunteers, Dickson spent some time pulling weeds in the areas surrounding the newly-built playground. He and Trufant also joined a few members of the Windermere staff to help make an announcement about the Seahawks’ and Windermere’s #TackleHomelessness partnership, in addition to chatting and taking photos with some of the Mary’s Place residents.
The second-year Seahawks punter mentioned that giving back to the community “means a lot. Your first year [on the team] you’re just trying to find your feet. But second year I can definitely do more in the community and plan to, and plan to do more and more as the years go on and just try and help out as much I can, especially with the youth and homelessness. Not everyone is as fortunate as us and any way to make their lives a little bit better and have fun and just be kids, I’m willing to help.”
Last Friday wasn’t the first time that the Seahawks have supported Mary’s Place, as running back C.J. Prosise stopped by the Seattle location back in February to donate gifts and treats to the families in the overnight shelter.
