Festiva, the developer for the Festiva hotel and resort properties and the Festiva Adventure Club, has donated $1,500 to the Christian Service Center in Gulf Shores, Alabama. These funds will go toward providing emergency services as well as guidance on finding solutions to long term problems for people in need in the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area.
“Organizations like the Christian Service Center are crucial in smaller communities like Gulf Shores and Orange Beach that may not have the same resources as larger cities. From providing emergency aid for housing, utilities and medical expenses to sponsoring a food pantry and charitable pharmacy and much more, this organization – which is completely volunteer based – is one that we are proud to support,” said Kevin Gilliland, resort manager at The Shores in Orange Beach, a Festiva property.
With two properties in Orange Beach that are recent additions to the Festiva network of resorts, the company is happy to support charitable causes and organizations in the Gulf Coast area. Festiva employs 10 people in the area.
Festiva began a flexible endowment fund in 2006 with the intent of providing permanent charitable resources for all the communities where Festiva employees live and work. The primary focus of the Festiva Charitable Fund is to promote education for youth and to assist in efforts to eliminate poverty in its communities. The charitable fund is also used to respond to extraordinary global events.
