Corporate Social Responsibility Programs in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach
Many groups today have decided they want to leave something behind in the communities they visit – a positive impact – and local Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) opportunities help them do this.
The team building is built right in, as attendees work together on a variety of important projects ranging from picking up trash to assisting families in need. Either way, the contribution of your group will last long after the meeting ends.
Here are some ideas to get your group started on making a difference in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
- Annual Alabama Coastal Clean-Up
Part of a worldwide clean-up program, the Alabama Coastal Clean-Up has drawn thousands of volunteers who have removed over 1.5 million pounds of trash and debris from our shores since 1987. Held in the month of September, volunteers meet at specific clean-up zones with trash bags, ready to go.
- Christian Service Center
Staffed entirely by volunteers, the center assists those in financial crisis while guiding them toward permanent solutions. Groups may be asked to fill food bins, organize toys for distribution, help out in the office or any number of important tasks.
- Gulf State Park
Already a great offsite venue for meetings and retreats, with facilities that can host up to 500, Gulf State Park’s two miles of beaches, hiking trails and fishing sites welcome nature seekers. Groups can join the maintenance team or pitch in at a number of areas, including a golf course and campground.
- Habitat for Humanity of Baldwin County
With the concept of “partnership housing” at its core, Habitat for Humanity builds and renovates houses to help those in need and develop communities. Volunteer opportunities abound, regardless of age or skill level.
- Special Events
A variety of annual local events bring people together and boost community spirit, a goal attendees can support while having fun at the same time. Check with our sales staff to find out which events coincide with your group’s stay.
