From physicians and nurses who are working 24-hour shifts to teachers who have switched to online instruction while also helping deliver students’ lunches to truckers who keep America’s food supply en route to our tables, these people truly are American heroes.
GULF SHORES, Ala. (PRWEB) May 14, 2020
Meyer Vacation Rentals President Michelle Hodges announced this week the first winners of the Front Line Heroes Beach Vacation Giveaway.
Meyer will award a total of 20 three-night beach getaways during May to deserving individuals whose work has placed them on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.
Nominations have come in by the hundreds for those who are working on the front lines of this pandemic, whether they are first responders, work in healthcare or law enforcement, serve as essential retail workers, or are teachers or other types of caregivers, Hodges said.
“The entire Meyer Vacation Rentals family is so thankful for the work our healthcare providers and all those who support others during this crisis have done on behalf of us, our loved ones and our neighbors,” she said. “And, while we could never repay these heroes for their tireless efforts, we’d like to say ‘thank you’ by offering the gift of time to rest and relax with their loved ones at the beach.”
Hodges said the entire Meyer team has been moved by the stories of those nominated for the drawing.
“These heroes’ stories are so heartwarming, and our staff has been brought to tears on numerous occasions. In fact, we called one winner while she was still in quarantine waiting to return home after being deployed on the USNS Comfort in New York City. A career Navy professional, she left behind a husband and five children to serve on the ship. Another, who has an autoimmune deficiency herself and spent a great deal of time in the hospital as a child, has been working on the front lines of the pandemic and giving her all to her pediatric patients. We are so proud to be able to give these heroes and their families some time to decompress at the beach when they are ready,” she said.
Each person nominated deserves recognition for the outstanding work they are doing to keep us all safe and healthy, Hodges reiterated.
“From physicians and nurses who are working 24-hour shifts to teachers who have switched to online instruction while also helping deliver students’ lunches to truckers who keep America’s food supply en route to our tables, these people truly are American heroes.”
Many Meyer Vacation Rentals owner partners generously donated time in their beach condos or houses to provide winners and their families with a beach vacation getaway to the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast.
“I’m proud of you for doing this. I played your video for my staff, and we were all crying by the end. You all are the best,” said one property owner. “We thank you for your effort over many years. We would like to join the effort to offer vacation time to these heroes,” said another.
“This giveaway simply would not have been possible without the many Meyer owner partners who donated time in their vacation rental properties for this program,” Hodges said. “We are so grateful for their generosity.”
