Although Alexanders has been involved in offering wounded warriors and their families a free weekend experience at Alexanders since the beginning of 2009, we realized that a weekend was not enough time for families to unwind, relax, and have a rest from the pressures of hospital routine. Therefore, our giving back mission concept expanded from a weekend in Maryland to a weeklong vacation in Florida in 2009.
Alexanders began offering transitional experiences to wounded warriors and their families for a weeklong Florida vacation experiences in private oceanfront or riverfront homes for service members and their families. A 501 © (3) organization was created to provide families a financially worry-free, relaxed, pampered, welcoming environment with all the recreational amenities Florida has to offer. Community volunteers stand ready to offer needed assistance and support to welcome the families. Re-connecting with and providing private family time is the centerpiece of this transitional experience.
