What Charities is Southern Involved With?

Learn About Our Southern Cares Program ~ Join Southern

In keeping with our vision of being the most caring company along the Gulf Coast, our Southern Cares program allows us the chance to extend the same hospitality and care we give our guests into our communities. We’re proud to partner with our local chapters for the Ronald McDonald House and Alzheimer’s Association. The Ronald McDonald House provides families with hospitalized children the care and resources they need at little to no cost, and the Alzheimer’s Association is committed to a world without Alzheimer’s through critical research while providing care and support. We also volunteer regularly throughout our community in multiple ways, from beautifying local parks and schools to helping out at local food pantries.

Voluntourism at Alaqua Animal Refuge

One way we are able to donate to these incredible organizations is through donations. We give our guests the opportunity to donate at the time of booking and are proud of our contributions to the Ronald McDonald House and the Alzheimer’s Association. In addition to donations, we also participate in events like Casual 4 Kids and the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. In 2018, we were able to raise over $13,000 for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and donate that money to research efforts.

In addition to our Southern Cares program, we’ve also launched our Voluntourism Initiative as part of our 25th-anniversary celebration. Our Voluntourism Initiative provides several opportunities to volunteer in Destin, Pensacola, South Walton, and Panama City Beach. We’re honored to be able to give back to the communities that support us and invite our guests to do the same. From volunteering at Alaqua Animal Refuge to promoting swimmable and fishable waterways with the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance, we’re proud to make a difference.

You should feel good about partnering with a local company that works to give back. Contact us today to learn more about the Southern difference and our Southern Cares program.
