Every month, our Woodmark family participates in a variety of local and national charitable organizations to enrich our community at home and at large.
Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill children who are seeking treatment at area hospitals. In March, we prepared and served dinner to 90 residents living at the Seattle Ronald McDonald House. In addition, we hosted a “Support a Cause” night in Beach Café where a portion of the proceeds from our restaurant that evening, were donated to Ronald McDonald House.

FareStart is a culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals. Since 1992, FareStart has provided opportunities for nearly 7,000 people to transform their lives, while also serving over 6 million meals to disadvantaged people in our community. In April, some members of our team volunteered at the Guest Chef Night by serving dinner to patrons and 100% of the proceeds and gratuities from the evening went back to fund FareStart student services and training.

Eastside Baby Corner
Eastside Baby Corner helps kids thrive by providing the basic necessities that every child needs. They do this by collecting and purchasing children’s items and distributing them, free of charge, through local social service agencies. In Washington State, one in five children is living in poverty. In 2014, Eastside Baby Corner supplied 800,000 diapers to families living in our communities. In June, we participated in a “Diaper Derby” for Eastside Baby Corner to help raise diapers to support their cause in fulfilling the need for every child to get a great start.

Red Nose Day
The Woodmark Hotel supported the Inaugural Red Nose day by donning big red clown noses at work in support of the cause. Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day was held in the US on May 21st, 2015. People across the country came together to have fun and raise funds and awareness. The day's events culminated in a three-hour entertainment TV special on NBC featuring the country's favorite comedians, musicians and Hollywood stars! The TV special showcased top comedy and entertainment live and in pre-recorded segments. It also highlighted the issues for which Red Nose Day is fundraising.
