Our Community Giving in 2015

January 5, 2016

Airline Hotels and its associates are committed to making a difference in our communities. It’s part of who we are! Each year, we do a recap of how much was donated to the community. Reflecting on 2015, we have a lot to be proud of as a company!

Hilton Garden Inn Park Clean-Up

Hilton Garden Inn Saskatoon associates spend one day each year cleaning-up the public parks.

 

At all nine of our hotels and head office, our associates have donated over $105,000 to community organizations through Fundraisers, Volunteer Time, Donated Items and our Payroll Deduction Campaign, which donates specifically to the United Way and Harold Latrace Family & Associates Foundation. This year alone, our amazing associates have donated over $25,000 through the Payroll Deduction Campaign. Here are some of the highlights of our associate campaigns:

  • Hilton Garden Inn Saskatoon’s Operation Christmas Child. Donating 32 shoeboxes plus shipping costs!
  • Travelodge Edmonton West’s Climb for a Cure Elevator Challenge. Raising $4,410 during elevator renovations! Click here for the video!

United Way Day of Caring

Our Chief Operating Officer at United Way Day of Caring.

Each year, Airline Hotels donates thousands of dollars to the communities that we live and work in. Our annual donation of $100,000 to the Harold Latrace Family & Associates Foundation, an organization that was developed by the family of our founder, helps fund project-based initiatives that support children and youth to develop into healthy and confident adults.

 

 

 

“We look for opportunities to make meaningful contributions and assist organizations that rely on our support to be successful. From our corporate philanthropy to associate fundraisers, every dollar adds up to make a big difference.” – Lauren Siermacheski, Community Leader at Airline Hotels
