Hampton Inn by Hilton Presque Isle Supports Local Community with Summer Gap Feeding Program
The event complements the brand’s Hands on Hamptonality community service program
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine - Hampton Inn by Hilton Presque Isle team members joined together in support of the local community through a donation to the Summer Gap Feeding Program for August 2017, benefiting 250 children who attend the local MSAD 1 Elementary and Middle School. Typically, MSAD 1 feeds both breakfast and lunch to children under 18 during the summer months, funded by a federal program, but once high school is back in session, that program is no longer available, leaving many children in the area feeling the effects of food insecurity for 20 days in August. Through donations, team members gave $500, which is enough to feed the children for one whole day. James Gerish, President of the hotel's management company, Emerald Hospitality, matched that donation with $500 from the Emerald Foundation, raising the donation to cover two whole days.
The community event supports the brand's signature community service program, Hands-On Hamptonality. The program's goal is to inspire acts of service to help build stronger and more connected communities through the spirit of hospitality while enabling team members to extend their friendly customer service culture, known as Hamptonality.
"Through the Hands on Hamptonality service program, our team members are able to make a positive contribution to this great community in which we live, play and work," said Adam Cyr, general manager. "Thank you to all who participated. Today was a great reminder that service is the greatest gift anyone can give."
