Posted October 15, 2018

ORLANDO, FLA. (October 15, 2018) – Holiday Inn Club Vacations® team members built 2,000 Clean the World hygiene kits for residents of the Florida Panhandle affected by Hurricane Michael. Additionally, the company pledged $10,000 toward Clean the World’s Hurricane Michael emergency response efforts. Holiday Inn Club Vacations team members traveled to the area to deliver relief supplies and help their Panama City Beach team members whose homes suffered damage from the storm. Clean the World will deliver the hygiene kits to local community organizations in the Panhandle.

“Hurricane Michael was a devastating event that affected many residents in the Panhandle, including our team members who live and work in the Panama City Beach area,” said Tom Nelson, President and CEO of Orange Lake Resorts. “We understand that hygiene kits are some of the most sought-after commodities post-storm, and our team members jumped right in to help supply the area with these much-needed necessities.”

“When natural disaster’s strike like the devastating events of Hurricane Michael, access to hygiene is critical and ongoing,” said Aleic Grant, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility of Clean the World. “With our great partner, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, we are moving to offer immediate relief with the assembly and distribution of hygiene kits into the Florida Panhandle region.”
