Tourism Cares' domestic program channels the philanthropic passion and commitment of the travel industry to protect and restore valuable destinations we all care about—and to support those destinations as engines for prosperity and pride in their communities. Our domestic programs focus on industry-wide volunteer events as well as capacity building for those nonprofit stewards of tourism sites in which we support.

August 23, 2015: Tourism Cares for Tybee Island at NTA Contact
Held in conjunction with NTA's tour operator retreat, delegates will have the opportunity to give back to their host city before heading home. Visit www.ntaonline.com to learn more.
Tybee Island, or “Savannah’s Beach” is a tourist destination 18 miles from Savannah rich with natural beauty and a favorite spot for vacationers. After the busy tourism season, the beaches of Tybee rely on volunteer help to clean-up that which tourists leave behind. Tourism Cares volunteers will engage in an early morning beach clean to help enhance the visitor experience and ensure litter and other debris is removed to protect the marine environment. At the end of the day, volunteers will be treated to a a Low Country Boil to celebrate!
Thank you to the 30 volunteers and our partners who helped make a difference at Doubleday Field on Friday, June 12! For pictures and more info, visit our Facebook page.
