Tourism Cares Volunteers at Mystic Seaport

A team of nine employees from Travel Insured International joined 350 fellow volunteers from across the travel industry representing Tourism Cares for America (TCFA) in gathering on May 6, 2011 at Mystic Seaport, the historic maritime museum village in southeast Connecticut.

Tourism Cares is the travel industry's leading non-profit charitable organization for tourism preservation, restoration and education, and was founded as a joint volunteer organization of the NTA and the U.S. Tour Operators Association.

The volunteer day at Mystic Seaport was Tourism Cares' 10th volunteer day since its first project in 2003 helped restore Ellis Island in New York harbor. Tourism Cares has also performed volunteer work days twice in New Orleans, as well as in Mount Vernon, VA, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Virginia City, NV, Gettysburg, PA, the National Mall in Washington D.C., and Angel Island, CA.
