The travel advisor community continued its focus on philanthropy during this week’s Elite Emerald Trip from Apple Leisure Group Vacations (ALGV).
About 20 of the advisors on the trip took the Amstar bus ride out to the El Porvenir community, a neighborhood that consists of many low-income families a short drive from the Cancun airport.
The advisors and ALGV staff showed up to assist with planting an organic garden that will provide affordable nutrition for the families year-round. The advisors also brought with them school supplies that were collected by ALGV from all advisors who attended this week’s Elite Emerald Trip, including crayons, pencils, paper, and more.
The excursion is part of ALGV’s continued outreach to local communities, which also includes delivering suppliers to 2nd Mile Missions, a Dominican Republic-based charity during 2021's Punta Cana rewards trip.
“Giving back to the communities we operate in is a core value for Apple Leisure Group,” said ALG Vacations’ Senior Vice President Scott Wiseman, who attended the event this week.
“We are making the Agents Give Back program a priority for all of our events in destination, and we are thankful for the generosity of our travel advisors.”
