Supporting the Community
Cranberry Resort is committed to giving back to the community within which it operates. Below are a few recent initiatives that we are proud to share.
Family Christmas Dinner at the Collingwood Legion - Every Christmas, The Cranberry Golf Resort in conjunction with local churches sponsors a holiday dinner that includes toys and a gift exchange for children.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Charity Event - Walk a Mile in Her Shoes asks men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men's sexual violence against women. The Cranberry Golf Resort is proud to have many of its staff members take part in the event every year.

Ongoing support for Journey Community Church - The Cranberry Golf Resort has hosted a number of events for the church and supports its members.
Internship opportunities - The Cranberry Resort provides internship and training programs for various education organizations including Collingwood Collegiate Institute and Georgian College.
Cranberry Youth Project - Since Fall 2008, Cranberry Resort has organized and sponsored a local youth project to help build leadership among high school students and at the same time provide a free after-school program for middle-school students. Our partners in this groundbreaking project include Collingwood’s Public Library, Collingwood’s Collegiate, a number of nearby elementary schools, Optimist Club, a youth agency, and a non-profit educational organization - Licensed to Learn (L2L). The partners, as well as the young people and their parents, all find the program beneficial and would like to see it continued in Collingwood. In the coming school year, we are planning to expand it to include other interested local schools.

One-Dollar Campaign for Collingwood’s Hospital – Our resort has launched a charitable campaign by inviting guests who check in to donate voluntarily $1 to support Collingwood’s Hospital, which serves both local and out-of-town patients. The response so far has been very positive.
