LINCOLN, NE – This holiday season, Resort Lifestyle Communities (RLC), a Lincoln-based senior retirement community developer, hopes to deliver a little magic for a local family.
While the magic of Christmas can mean more than just gifts under the tree; it is the way gifts appear that is magical.
An employee-led initiative to help make the holiday season brighter for others this year; employees raised over $3,500 in gifts, gas cards, and cash to donate to a family of 10, who had a life-changing tragedy this past Fall. After hearing of the family’s remarkable story, employees did not hesitate to offer a helping hand.
“Most of us look forward to the holidays as a time to spend with loved ones, gift exchanges, and religious celebrations. Yet, many families in our community also view the holidays as an incredibly stressful time as they struggle to make ends meet while trying to provide holiday joy for those they love,” said the company project coordinator. “We recognize the need to help make their children’s wishes come true as well as their own. We are grateful for the ability to provide the light of hope and joy to others this holiday season. That magic is the spirit of Christmas.”
RLC employees purchased and individually wrapped items throughout the month of December, and will surprise the family prior to the Christmas holiday.
With 129 employees in the Lincoln headquarters and 1,081 employees nationwide, RLC is one of Lincoln’s fastest growing companies. The company Resort Lifestyle Communities (RLC) and its sister company, Cameron General Contractors (CGC), build, own, and manage luxury independent living communities across the country. CGC locates, buys, zones, and develops properties. Once the communities are ready to open, RLC takes over the day-to-day operations, management, and marketing of the communities. Both companies were founded in the mid-1990's in Lincoln, Nebraska.
