Yesterday Wincome Group donated 47 hotel rooms worth of furniture to Saint Anthony Claret Catholic Church for distribution to residents of the Anna Drive community in Anaheim, as well as to Orange County’s Illumination Foundation. The donation comes as Wincome Group continues to make major investments in Anaheim, including plans to cease operations at the Anabella Hotel and begin its redevelopment into a four-diamond property, and major renovations at the Anaheim Hotel.
The Anna Drive neighborhood is one of the most challenged in Anaheim and these families stand to benefit from the donation. The donation to these residents was recommended by Anaheim Fifth District Councilmember Stephen Faessel.
“The neighborhood has seen a lot of hardship in the past few years and our residents work really hard to create a safe environment for their families. It is because of companies and organizations like Wincome Group that we can continue to provide resources for these families in need. We are so grateful for this furniture donation and the impact it is going to have in our community,” commented Yesenia Rojas, a community activist in Anaheim.
The second beneficiary of the donation was the Illumination Foundation, an organization whose mission includes helping the homeless population by providing targeted services to the homeless community.
“We are thankful to organizations like the Illumination Foundation for their work in the community. Wincome is happy to give back,” stated Paul Sanford, Asset Manager for the Wincome Group.
Wincome Group will be closing the Anabella Hotel to begin the construction of their new four-diamond resort which will bring 1,968 new construction jobs to the city as well as 514 jobs upon opening of the hotel.
