June 29, 2017 – Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) is gearing up for the annual Volunteer Day with Friends of the Dillon Ranger District (FDRD). Each summer, BGV partners with FDRD to maintain the trail systems in and around Breckenridge. BGV’s philanthropic program, BGV Gives plays a large role in coordinating volunteers and trail repairs with FDRD, and reaches out to employees and the community for help.
The Forest Service assesses trails with FDRD a few weeks prior to the cleanup to determine which areas needed the most attention. Then, volunteers comprised of FDRD staff, BGV employees, families, friends and other community members spend the weekend cleaning trails, transplanting trees and closing trails in sensitive areas. This is followed up with a mountain-top cookout sponsored by BGV to celebrate their success. There are a multitude of ways to get involved locally. Visit FDRD’s website and BGV Gives for more information.
And what’s even better than helping your community? Getting paid to do it! BGV’s Volunteer Time Off program pays employees for up to 24 hours of approved community and philanthropic work per year.
With benefits like this, it comes as no surprise that BGV remains Summit County’s top employer and has again been named as one of the best places to work by The Denver Post, the Best of Summit, the Business Excellence Awards, and ColoradoBiz.
