Brittain Resorts & Hotels strives to give back to the community through involvement in community projects and contributions to local charities. Our passion for building up the community was instilled by the founding Brittain Family in 1943 and is fueled by team members’ desire to make a positive impact today. The creation of the Community Engagement Council in 2022 encapsulates this drive to make a difference and contributes to the betterment of our community through the successful completion of numerous service projects and charity events.
For their inaugural year, the Community Engagement Council organized and enacted events for the Helping Hand of Myrtle Beach, Habitat for Humanity, and Toys for Tots. They also participated in a post-hurricane beach cleanup, curated a workplace fundraising event for military care boxes, and instituted an online communications portal providing associates direct access to local nonprofit organizations.
Creating the Community Engagement Council was a collective effort by the 2022 members, including Irene Batten, Melissa Bilka, Denise Clarke, Lauren Doran, Carlie Fletcher, Kristen Habesland, Alisha Margulies, Sydney Martin, Candace Protzman, and Matthew Young. The council’s mission statement, “we are organizing and communicating volunteer opportunities within our local community,” guides their endeavors.
Service excellence and teamwork are two of Brittain Resorts & Hotels’ core values. The values enacted in our hospitality management and workplace environment swiftly translated to community involvement as members of the Community Engagement Council assembled 233 emergency food kits distributed to neighbors in need through Helping Hand of Myrtle Beach.
Council members also volunteered at three separate Habitat for Humanity Build events in May, June, and November of 2022. Volunteers installed siding, gutters, flooring, and outdoor items in May and June as part of the home-building process. Council members painted a home approaching completion in November, assisting with the final stages of the Habitat project.
The Community Engagement Council fostered positive relations in the workplace while contributing to the local community through Pie Your Manager, a bonding event that raised $682 for military care boxes to be shipped overseas as a token of appreciation for those who serve and protect us. The council once again combined bonding with charity fundraising through the corporate Christmas party, where members collected several boxes of toys for Toys for Tots.
Environmental efforts were the focus of the Community Engagement Council as members dispersed across our coastline and led a beach cleanup first in July, and again after Hurricane Ian. Beach cleanups help fight ocean pollution, protect local wildlife, and keep Myrtle Beach beautiful for locals and guests to enjoy.
The inaugural year of Brittain Resorts & Hotels’ Community Engagement Council was marked by the completion of numerous successful community projects and charity events. We appreciate
the council’s efforts and congratulate them on their achievements as they begin preparations for 2023.
