Krug receives 2021 Idaho Outstanding Adult Philanthropist award

Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty would like to congratulate its broker, Pat Krug, on receiving the 2021 Idaho Outstanding Adult Philanthropist award from the Idaho Nonprofits Group.

Krug has led her life giving to and helping others. In an interview with “Portrait of a Town,” Krug mentioned she is “inspired by helping others be more of whom they want to be.” The staff at Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty have all been impacted by Krug’s ability to nurture growth and development in their personal and professional lives. Krug has a genuine and intentional spirit about her that naturally allows people to want to stay connected with her.

Krug is a member of the Women’s Gift Alliance in Kootenai County, which helps “teach women about giving and developing skills as engaged and informed philanthropists" while providing essential financial support for many charities within our community. Krug cares so much about her community and helping people live better lives that she prepares and personally delivers more than 100 meals to local displaced citizens in Kootenai County every Monday morning.

Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty staff has had the privilege of working with Krug on a huge annual project called the Senior Christmas Program, sponsored by the “Area Agency on Aging of North Idaho” organization. She works with this program to sponsor and help isolated and home-bound senior citizens in the community have a wonderful Christmas. She organizes a volunteer effort to donate food, supplies, necessities and wanted gifts; then collaborates with the team to process, wrap and deliver those gifts.

"Pat continues to lead her colleagues in humbleness, gratitude and service among our community and we are so proud to see her receive this recognition," according to a press release by Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty staff.
