LAS VEGAS, NV (Dec. 18, 2015) — Diamond Resorts International® spreads joy this season with the kickoff of its annual holiday fundraising initiatives. Continuing its efforts to support organizations that touch the lives of people, Diamond Resorts International® will once again support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation as well as many other local organizations in its resort and corporate office communities around the world.
This marks the third consecutive year that Diamond Resorts has partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation. Team members and guests at our resorts across the U.S. will be donating new toys for the holidays that will be distributed to less fortunate children within their local communities. Last year, the company proudly collected over 1,600 toys nationwide.
The company has also partnered with community food banks and clothing drives across the U.S., giving team members an opportunity to volunteer their time to help organize and package food and clothing for children and the elderly. Additionally, all Diamond Resorts locations will be collecting nonperishable food items which will be delivered to local food banks for distribution to those in need.
On a global level, Diamond Resorts will be working with many not-for-profit organizations, including local fire and law enforcement agencies, to help provide for those in need. This includes donating gently used linens, furniture and other household items to shelters.
Through Embrace A Team Member, an internal Diamond Resorts program, team members can lend a helping hand by providing holiday gifts for the children of their fellow co-workers who may be struggling financially.
“As a leader in offering people unique, enriching vacation experiences, it is important to Diamond Resorts and its team members that we also support both our local communities and the global organizations that make a difference in people’s lives, especially during the holidays,” said David Palmer, Diamond Resorts International® President and CEO. “We are proud of the overwhelming enthusiasm shown by our team members, and their determination to lend a helping hand with our year-round initiatives as well as during this special time of year.”
