rom its very inception, Westgate Resorts has been dedicated to not just giving back to the community, but to also helping it thrive and prosper. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, every business, family and individual suffered setbacks and losses in one way or another. But determined to write its own future, Westgate Resorts rose to the challenge through innovation and collaboration. Enter WestgateCARES, a uniquely crafted, and all-encompassing program designed to develop and enhance the health and safety processes and procedures of its resort properties and communities. Within days of the pandemic’s outbreak, Westgate organized a team of professionals dedicated to ensuring the well-being of each of its guests, owners, Team Members and resort communities. While the priority of WestgateCARES is to provide the finest guest experience in the safest resort environment possible, its second goal is to help other businesses achieve and provide those same heath standards to battle the COVID-19 pandemic together.  I LOVE ORLANDO

“From day one of this crisis, every decision Westgate Resorts made was based on one simple premise: How to best protect our guests, Team Members and the local community,” said Mark Waltrip, Chief Operating Officer of Westgate Resorts. “Just as important, we recognize that many businesses may not possess Westgate’s extensive resources to develop such comprehensive procedures. Therefore, it is our hope that sharing this vital information will help everyone reopen safely and reduce the spread of this terrible pandemic.” The program’s enhanced safety measures include advanced cleaning procedures, strict personal hygiene protocols and a long list of specific operating procedures aimed at mitigating the virus's risk. Westgate also

made its standard operating procedures and policies publicly available to help other businesses and entrepreneurs in crafting their own individualized procedures. In addition, as states began sheltering in place, Westgate turned its attention to those in the community who were most at need, strengthening the bond with its more than 74 nonprofit partners across the United States. Food donations, totaling tens of thousands of dollars, continue weekly to various nonprofits such as United Against Poverty Orlando, the Christian Center of Park City and dozens of similar organizations supplying essential meals and care kits to families in need.

Food Donations

Following the CDC’s recommendations, WestgateCARES then implemented a unique program to pay its own employees and supply them with the necessary materials to sew masks from the safety of their homes. To date, more than 6,500 masks, created by Westgate Team Members, have been donated to nonprofit organizations and hospitals throughout the country. “At Westgate, we know we are only as strong as we are united, and we intend to make it through this together,” said Waltrip.
