Wenatchee, WA: Consistently Making A Difference

By
Education & Training with U.S.: I specialize in helping agents who have been in the business 2 years or less create a thriving business.


"One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time." 


Last Thursday, April 19th Wenatchee Make a Difference Day leaders received the news that Wenatchee, Washington has once again received one of 13 National Make A Difference Day Awards. There were over 800 projects submitted in 2017 for consideration for these coveted national awards. 


In the big picture, Wenatchee is a relatively small geographic area but we have big hearts.   This honor is kind of mindboggling.  The fact we consistently receive these national awards is a true testimonial for the extreme giving spirit of our community.  Wenatchee is an amazing community but so are many other communities across the country.

With this award comes a $10,000 check and national recognition.  The money goes back to the community to provide seed money for future Make A Difference Day projects.  This year's Make A Difference Day is October 27th... always the 4th Saturday in October.   As one of the organizers said during their TV interview, "It's never too early to plan ahead."

Here are some links to some of the pictures and projects:

If you watch the news and think the world is full of bad, you just need to pay attention to all the good happening around you.  If you don't see the good, make some good.

That is certainly an honor that residents can tout with pride and the chamber of commerce promote widely to prospective businesses and residents.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ,
I love that the prize money is used for seed money for new projects.  The seed money is generally $200 which can be used to feed volunteers for the day or whatever.  Many of the projects also get seed money from local businesses.  We have an awesome business community here too.

Good morning Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, 
We are certainly blessed with a wonderful place to live.  I just wish Washington State wasn't getting so liberal in it's politics.  But, I won't get started on that.
