DAYTONA BEACH, FL (December 4, 2020) — Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach hosted a "Day of Giving" event on December 1 to present 13 local charitable organizations with checks for $5,000 each from the Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach Community Foundation. Recipients and residents in attendance celebrated with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres provided by the Latitude Bar & Chill restaurant.
Minto Communities, developer and builder of Latitude Margaritaville, establishes a community foundation in each of its communities to further Minto's commitment to give back to the greater community. At each new home closing, new home buyers donate $100 to the Foundation, and Minto matches the donation. More than 3,000 homes are planned for Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach. This will generate an estimated total to the Community Foundation exceeding $600,000. Additionally, each buyer of a resale home also will donate $100 to ensure the Foundation's future viability. Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach Community Foundation funds are distributed to organizations and initiatives that benefit the greater Daytona Beach community.
Recipients of the Day of Giving $5,000 checks include: Canine Companions; First Step Shelter, Inc.; Food Brings Hope; Friends of Marine Science Center; Halifax Humane Society; Lilian Place Heritage Center; Ormond Memorial Art Museum; SMA Healthcare, Inc.; Salty Family Services (A ministry of Salty Church); Special Olympics Florida; Futures/Take Stock in Children; Volusia Literary Council, and Volusia Turtle Patrol, Inc.
According to William Bullock, president of Minto's Latitude Margaritaville Division, "Minto is committed to supporting the greater community in each of the Latitude Margaritaville locations. Establishing a community foundation is a positive way for us to join with our residents in making an impact for the greater good. Latitude Margaritaville residents are very philanthropic and are involved in supporting many Daytona area charitable organizations and causes. We are greatly honored to have partnered with the community in these efforts."
