The mission of the Westgate Resorts Foundation is to actively support charitable activities in areas where our employees live and work. Emphasis is placed on our employees, children, women, families, seniors and other local programs that improve the quality of life in our communities.
Thanks to donations from Westgate families and others, that assistance can come in many different forms. One Westgate employee and his family recently received assistance in the form of a Ford Aerostar van.
The Mendez family has two children, including one with special needs. When their vehicle was stolen, the family experienced difficulties in getting to work and school. Those difficulties were alleviated on March 1, 2012 when Westgate President David Siegel presented the Mendez family with keys to the van, which had been donated to the Foundation by another Westgate family.
The van donation is just one more way the Westgate Resorts Foundation remains a driving force in creating a better tomorrow for others.
