Book to Build, Starts now!
Choice Hotels Canada is kicking off its third annual Book To Build campaign with fundraising efforts beginning on May 10. The campaign raised over $115,000 last year and this year, the goal has been increased to $145,000, with 100 per cent of proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity Canada. Kicking off on Friday May 10, guests at participating properties will have a portion of their rooms proceeds donated to help families in need of affordable housing. The campaign runs until Sunday, May 26. “We make it a priority to give back to the community and it’s very important to us as a company,” says Brian Leon, President, Choice Hotels Canada. “Working with Habitat for Humanity allows us to build homes alongside families in need of housing and we are thrilled to be bringing back this initiative for a third year.” Funds are being raised in a variety of ways throughout the month, with many Choice properties working on fundraising within their own communities. Members of the Choice Privileges loyalty program are also able to get involved by donating their points.
”Affordable homeownership provides families with strong foundations to build better opportunities for themselves,” says Mark Rodgers, Habitat Canada’s President and CEO.
Choice Hotels Canada supports reputable charitable organizations that focus on shelter, education and community development as it relates to children. To date, the Book To Build campaign has raised $219,000, with a goal of raising $500,000 over the next three years. For more information on Book To Build, visit: www.BookToBuild.ca
