 Windstar Gives Back
Among the core values of Windstar is “Stewardship of the Surrounding Community”. Thanks to the kind and giving spirit at our club, we have raised over $310,000 since 2008 to benefit charities including the 5th graders at the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County and the Global Garden at Avalon Elementary School (2012). This year, our two beneficiaries are the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County and “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device) program at Avalon Elementary School.

2012 Windstar Gives Back

Boys & Girls Club of Collier County  
The Windstar on Naples Bay community helps the Boys & Girls Club through the Club’s Hope, Opportunity, Purpose & Enrichment  (HOPE) Initiative. The initiative’s goal is to garner community support for the programs of the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County. Using the HOPE Initiative, the Windstar on Naples Bay community has adopted two classrooms of young people each year, providing 60 children with much needed scholarships to attend the Club. The goal of the HOPE initiative is to better connect the community with the Boys & Girls Club to sustain life-changing, youth development programs.

Naples Botanical Gardens | Global Garden
In the fall of 2002, Naples Botanical Garden partnered with Avalon Elementary, Windstar Audubon Committee, and the East Naples community on the beginning stages of the Global Garden. The purpose of the program was to improve student performance while also encouraging family and community involvement, which over the last nine years it has accomplished and expanded upon. The resulting Global Garden brought members of the community and school together to create an incredible hands-on learning experience for students. In 2011, the Global Garden project at Avalon Elementary was awarded first place in the Multiple Class Garden category for this year’s University of Florida (UF) Environmental Horticulture Department’s School Garden Competition. “The Global Garden is an extraordinary place that serves as not only a living and breathing classroom, but that holds the footprints of former students, mentors and supporters of its vision,” said Patricia Thorsen, a teacher at Avalon Elementary. The garden has provided an education that is priceless to the students and families of this community.”
