Hampton Hotels Refurbishes Landmarks in Every U.S. State
Almost all hotels have some sort of program in place to help local communities and provide a service for residents and guests at their properties. And for over a decade, Hampton Hotels has made it a goal to aid in the refurbishment of a landmark in every single U.S. state. The brand reached that goal last week by donating $25,000 toward the restoration of the Kīlauea Lighthouse in Hawai‘i in honor of National Public Lands Day.
“We are thrilled to be able to help aid the preservation of the Kīlauea Lighthouse as it prepares for its centennial celebration in 2013,” said Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president of global brand marketing, Hampton Hotels. “This donation to one of Hawai‘i’s most iconic landmarks signifies the realization of our goal to help at least one landmark in each U.S. state. It’s a momentous milestone in our brand’s history – one we’ve worked toward for nearly 12 years.”
To date, Hampton has preserved 60 historic sites in 50 states and three countries and has donated more than $2.5 million and more than 8,000 volunteer hours towards the research and refurbishment of roadside landmarks.
Hampton Hotels presented the donation to Kīlauea Point Natural History Association (KPNHA) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service during a local celebration of National Public Lands Day. On site to accept the donation on behalf of the Kīlauea Lighthouse was Sue Boynton, KPNHA Board President; Gary Smith, KPNHA Capital Campaign Chair; and Shannon Smith, Refuge Manager for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Kaua‘i National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
With the milestone achieved with its Save-a-Landmark program, Hampton also announced a new volunteerism program called Hampton Helps. Hampton Hotels’ team members worldwide will launch the program and give back to causes they are passionate about by activating Hampton Helps events during Hilton Worldwide’s Global Week of Service, Nov. 11 – 18.
