ONE Team, ONE Heart
Making a difference for our guests, our communities, and each other
Good things happen when you show up. At ONE Lodging Management, we believe in recognizing our talented, innovative and committed Supporters who truly believe in showing up as their best selves every day.
ONE Lodging Management has adopted CORE (Children of Restaurant Employees), a not-for-profit organization that offers financial aid to hospitality industry employees, as a partner for its charitable endeavors. Taking time off to care for a sick child can be detrimental to a hospitality worker’s finances, so CORE steps in to assist to pay a utility bill, to purchase an iPad for a disabled child, or to fly a family to Disney World for a dream vacation.
During ONE’s Annual 2016 General Manager conference, we collectively raised $5,000 towards CORE.
Each of ONE’s hotels are challenged to give back, and our Supporters actively create and participate in local community service activities. We are also proud of our many brand partners who engage our teams in their collective efforts.
While each hotel invests in communities on their own, we are under ONE team, with ONE heart. Below is a selection of recent activities by our Supporters:
Westin Whistler Resort & Spa
The team raised $3,799 for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada by participating in “The Big Bike” in which they rode a 30-seat bike for 2 kilometres!
Fairfield Inn & Suites
Supporters collected food donations and provided meal baskets for several local families in need in addition to participating in Spirit to Serve, where the team collected toiletries and personal items for donation to local women’s shelters.
The team was recognized for its support for the annual “Hearts for Heroes Canine Showcase” event.
Each year Hilton encourages a ’31 Days of Hamptonality’ challenge for their branded properties to engage with their local communities. Among many other acts of giving, Lisa and fellow Supporters spent a day spreading cheer at a local Assisted Living facility.
Holiday Inn Express
Our Holiday Inn Express Fort Myers, FL team participated in the annual Team Tourism Travel Rally Day on May 6th in support of National Travel and Tourism Week, which celebrates tourism’s impact on local businesses and the economy and recognizes the importance of travel and hospitality professionals.
Oak Tree Inn
When the historic, 109-year-old Royal Hotel burned to the ground in January, the Oak Tree Inn Yampa CO team was there to lend support. Displaced residents were housed at Oak Tree Inn and Penny’s Diner served as a community drop-in point for donations of money, food and clothing.
