Giving back to the community has always been an important part of corporate responsibility and we at the Holiday Inn Gainesville couldn’t be more happy to announce the launch of our new “Holiday Inn Gives Back” program. With this program, we’ll be championing a different charity each month. When groups or organizations book room blocks and/or meeting space at our hotel, we’ll donate a portion of our proceeds to the current month’s charity in the booking organization or group’s name. Piesanos Pints and Pies, located adjacent to our hotel and a Gainesville favorite for pizza, is also joining in on the charity fun by volunteering to donate a portion of their proceeds on select days(s). Together, we can make an impact.
April’s selected charity is LifeQuest Organ Recovery Services. LifeQuest encourages everyone to join the Florida Organ Donor Registry at www.donatelifeflorida.org. Their mission is to save lives through the commitment of other individuals to the belief in organ and tissue donation.
Today is also National Donate Life Blue and Green Day, so we gathered together for a group photo wearing the colors of the cause with Coral Denton, representative for LifeQuest.
