At US Hotels we pride ourselves on having a positive impact on the communities among whom we do business. Our charitable efforts to date have supported many worthy causes including relief for the victims of Katrina, Haiti earthquake relief, and most recently, cancer research.
Henceforth, in an effort to have to a more direct local impact we have decided to partner with the Ronald McDonald House of Portland, an organization providing an affordable “home away from home” for the families of children receiving medical care in the area. We are donating our award-winning accommodations and warm hospitality directly to the patients and their families. Additionally, our employees who wish to do so will be able to volunteer their time to the Ronald McDonald House in a variety of ways. We are a hospitality company, in the business of providing experiences. We hope to provide positive experiences and happy memories for those in need of a little respite.
Additionally, US Hotels contributes to the Grace Foundation. The Grace Foundation has been created in order to support national and international charities carefully selected by our parent company, the Libra Group. For every night a guest stays with us, we donate $1.50 to the Foundation. We then invite guests to match that contribution if they so wish. The combined funds go towards supporting the chosen charities. The current US charity which will benefit from funds raised by the Grace Foundation is Share Our Strength, an organization fighting child hunger. Share Our Strength’s “No Kid Hungry” campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to prepare healthy, affordable meals. The programme also seeks to raise public awareness of childhood hunger with the hope that ending it will become a national priority. More charities that will benefit from Grace Foundation funds include: Kivotos Tou Kosmou, Junior Achievement and SOS Children’s Villages. To find out more about the Grace Foundation, click here.
We are not currently considering donation requests beyond this endeavor. It is our hope that by focusing on these specific causes we can make a more significant impact.
