Hotel chain offering volunteer time to West Tennessee non-profits
JACKSON, Tenn.–One hotel chain is offering volunteer time to local non-profits.
The Double Tree by Hilton in Jackson has announced a commitment of 100 volunteer hours to be spent among three local non-profits. The West Tennessee Veterans Coalition, RIFA of Jackson and the Boys and Girls Club of Jackson.
The 100 volunteer hours are in celebration of the hotel’s parent company, Cooper Hotels of Memphis, committing to 100 years of future Hilton brand affiliation among its 16 hotels.
“All of our employees are eligible to kind of get out and help. We’ll take cookies to functions, we’ll get out. We’ll do teaching kid to care within our community. We encourage our staff, our management team, to get out and make a difference,” said Director of marketing, Mary Ross with the Double Tree Hotel by Hilton.
The 16 Cooper Hotels properties each selected a special local organization to receive 100 hours of volunteer time. On top of the volunteer hours,
$100 million will soon be invested into all 16 hotels for upgrades.
