Hurricane Ian BW Plus Beach Resort Employee Fund

Hi, my name is Tim Malbon. I'm the managing general partner of the Best Western Plus Beach Resort.

Here on Fort Myers Beach, the devastation of Hurricane Ian has left an unprecedented scale of destruction. Everyone is currently in survival mode as they assess the storm's ramifications on their families and lives.

Our hotel is independently owned and operated, as are all Best Westerns. Many of our employees --- those who have delivered impeccable customer services to our guests over the years, are facing debilitating and life-changing impacts from Hurricane Ian.

Everyone from Rich at the front desk to our maintenance staff to the employees keeping our rooms clean is out of work and has suffered damage to their homes, loss of personal belongings, and long-term trauma.

We are thankful to everyone who has reached out to help and for the outpouring of concern we are receiving from our past guests, local authorities, and family and friends. We've decided to start the Hurricane Ian BW Plus Beach Resort Employee Fund to help provide relief and support for everyone on our team as we work toward a plan to bring our beautiful hotel back for us all to enjoy.

We remain in constant contact with our employees, and all donations will go directly to our team members who have lost access to vital resources, faced insurmountable damage to their homes, or were displaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

From the entire Best Western Beach Resort family, we THANK YOU for your contributions and heartfelt messages. Every ounce of positive energy and prayer you direct our way is beneficial and appreciated.

We will keep you all updated here and on our social media sites and soon hope to occasionally bring you a story of two of positivity, community, and hope.
