Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO) recently presented a $20,000 check to Savannah’s Playground — an enabling playground in Myrtle Beach, S.C. featuring ADA-approved equipment and structures designed for children of all abilities. The contribution was made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Wyndham Myrtle Beach team and their organization of a golf tournament for more than 100 players at Prestwick Country Club last month.
“I want to thank Wyndham Vacation Ownership for their $20,000 contribution to Savannah’s Playground,” said Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes. “This generous donation will go a long way to help build the restrooms that are needed, and we are excited to have Wyndham Vacation Ownership as a partner in the future development to Savannah’s Playground.”
“Wyndham is committed to developing, supporting and enhancing the Myrtle Beach community we call home,” said Bryan Dixon, Resort Vice President – East Region, Wyndham Vacation Ownership. “It’s an honor to support Savannah’s Playground, a park that brings so much joy to children, and to support Mayor Rhodes in getting closer to the $3 million goal to finish the park. We are pleased that our donation will allow children to enjoy the beautiful area for years to come.”
In Myrtle Beach, WVO has six timeshare resorts, five sales offices and more than 600 associates with positions across resort operations and sales and marketing. Throughout the country, WVO remains committed to enhancing local communities through sustained corporate social responsibility and supporting organizations that make a positive difference in the lives of children and families. As part of the company’s philanthropic commitment, WVO associates are offered one day of paid-time-off annually for community service known as a “Wish Day,” allowing them the chance to give back to their local area.
