Premier Vacation Rentals Group is partnering with its donating homeowners to offer immediate free lodging to families and individuals that have been affected by COVID-19. This temporary program strives to strengthen resources available in the Colorado communities PVRG operates in.
VRMA member and CEO of PVRG, Chris Bettin, said that both himself and Keith Bryant, the company's co-founder, "have been trying to find some way to help the communities we work in as we experience historic cancellations and unprecedented impacts on our business at this time, just like our friends and neighbors are experiencing."
Local emergency responders, medical professionals and military personnel assisting with emergency response efforts, family members who are primary caregivers, and teachers are just some of the individuals who can apply for this offering.
Additionally, PVRG has also set up a program for homeowners to get involved and donate two-night complimentary stays to not-for-profit organizations in their communities to raise money for organizations experiencing high-demand for their services during the pandemic. One of the donating homeowners said that it was a great way to support the community, "especially if living a distance from it."
"Our large network of now-vacant homes and the generous homeowners we manage property for provide for a unique and viable housing opportunity for people temporarily impacted by this crisis," said Bettin. "I am hoping we can change our collective mindset from being impacted to being impactful."
