Bluegreen Vacations Celebrates Its Season of Giving
Friday, December 6, 2019
More than 120 community organizations all across the US have benefited from Bluegreen Vacations Corporation’s annual Season of Giving campaign. Throughout the month of November, associates of Bluegreen Vacations and guests across 60 US-based resorts have participated in various outreach initiatives to give back.
Bluegreen Vacations partnered with a number of national organizations including Feeding America, the Salvation Army, and the Camaraderie Foundation. With these organizations, they packed shelf-stable food for families in need, provided holiday gifts for underserved children, and contributed over $60,000 for free mental health counseling for post-9/11 veterans, service members, and their families.
Bluegreen Vacations also worked with local charities such as Clean the World, Give Kids the World, Second Harvest, Mustard Seed, SOS Children’s Villages, Habitat for Humanity, Champion Autism Network, Toys for Tots, Junior Achievement, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and more.
“Each year, our associates enthusiastically partake in the Bluegreen Vacations tradition of serving the communities where we work and live and we couldn’t be prouder of all they’ve done to date,” said Justin Taylor, Executive Vice President and Chief People and Technology Officer. “This Season of Giving has been a tremendous success with our partnering organizations, and we are delighted to continue this campaign, especially during this wonderful time of the year.”
The month-long celebration started with local charity fairs where more than 5,000 Bluegreen associates donated time, resources, or money to local causes. They completed coastal clean-ups, tutored school children, served in soup kitchens, helped with fundraising runs, and built homes for families in need.
Season of Giving is just one of the philanthropic campaigns that Bluegreen Vacations works on each year. The company is committed to supporting various initiatives that affect a positive change in the communities where they do business.
In 2018, Bluegreen Vacations raises and donates over $2.15 million in cash and in-kind contributions to charitable organizations. Bluegreen Vacations associates completed over 4,600 volunteer hours that year as well. Learn more about the company and their philanthropic efforts on their website.
