Timeshare Resorts honoring Veterans Day

The American Resort Development Association (ARDA)  issued a media release this week that looked at some of the many ways timeshare resorts, developers, and the vacation ownership industry offer a much deserved ‘thank you’ to our nation’s veterans. You can read the full release at the Newsroom at VacationBetter.org

As Howard Nusbaum, president and CEO of ARDA explains, “Protecting our country is an important job that too often gets taken for granted. On this special day set aside for those who have served and who currently serve, we want to honor this special group of people.”

Grand Pacific Resort Management Helping Military Families all Year Long

Grand Pacific Resort Management, is recognized as one of the oldest and largest vacation ownership companies based in California. Grand Pacific and its affiliates have developed, and today currently manage, 15 timeshare resorts and hotels, collectively offering some 1,000 timeshare units and hotel rooms. Among their timeshare resorts is the Orange County resort San Clemente Cove. Working with the nonprofit organization, “San Clemente Military Family Outreach,” Grand Pacific Resort Management donates weeks of ResorTime.com timeshare inventory, which is then auctioned to raise funds for the work of San Clemente Military Family Outreach.

Working to provide emergency and morale services to the more than 1000 families stationed in the Camp Pendleton Marine and Navy base area, San Clemente Military Family Outreach helps with school supplies, emergency car repairs, baby showers, and holiday turkeys. Bob Crittenden, a current owner at Carlsbad Seapointe Resort is one of the driving forces behind this nonprofit group.
