Although the COVID-19 news cycle has often been filled with worrisome and – at times – panic inducing information, hoteliers are doing what they do best – offering a helping hand to their communities and showing a true spirit of hospitality. Here, HT has curated some examples of how this is happening around the country. We hope it brightens your mood and day to read about how your colleagues have stepped up to the plate, swung, and hit a home run. The stadium might be empty but we are all cheering loudly at home!!
PPE, Food Donations
From food to PPE to beds to refrigeration units, hotels have been working hard to help out where they can. Many companies have donated fresh fruit, vegetables and meat to food banks in their local communities. MGM Resorts offered their supply chain and refrigerators to help local authorities transport and store COVID-19 rapid test kits, which must remain frozen to be viable. Choice Hotels partnered with Serta to help donate mattresses to hospitals and temporary medical facilities. Wynn Resorts donated hundreds of thousands of PPE items.
