During these hard economic times, families with special-needs children are having even more difficulty with their finances. SPM Properties, a timeshare management company that manages 30 properties from Maine and St. Thomas, founded the Sharing Precious Memories Foundation which grants week-long vacations that give parents and caregivers a rest and provide experiences many take for granted.
It’s a great use for some of the unoccupied condos or units within the timeshare resorts. Moreover, the foundation enlists in-kind donations like restaurant gift certificates, entertainment tickets and grocery store gift cards that will give these families more than just a fancy room but accommodations, board, and entertainment. It’s an oasis for families, some who cannot even afford to reach the resorts providing the gift.
