Bluegreen Timeshare Resorts Establish Collection Points for Donations

Timeshare resale at Bluegreen Wilderness Club at Big Cedar timeshareTwo popular Bluegreen timeshare resorts, Bluegreen Wilderness Club at Big Cedar timeshare and The Cliffs at Long Creek and Paradise Point timeshare, are working together as part of the relief effort for victims of the tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri on May 22.

Becca VonderMehden, assistant resort manager at Bluegreen Wilderness Club at Big Cedar timeshare says, “Many of our owners, guests, vendors and suppliers live in Joplin. They have lost nearly everything–their homes, automobiles, possessions, jobs and businesses. Thousands of innocent victims are now homeless and in need of life’s necessities like water, food, toiletries, flashlights, tools, money and more.”

How Bluegreen Timeshares Are Making a Difference

Collecting cash and supplies, the two Missouri timeshare resorts are processing their donations through the American Red Cross as designated funds for Joplin Tornado Relief. Each resort set up collection points where Bluegreen timeshare employees, timeshare owners, resort guests and area residents could drop off their donations. At Bluegreen timeshare’s corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida, employees joined the effort, donating the proceeds of their monthly raffle to the Joplin fund.

On May 26, the two Bluegreen resorts used a shuttle bus to transport the supplies collected to Joplin residents. Monetary collections are ongoing.
