Giving Back to the Community One Nail at a Time
As part of the Destination Life initiative, Destination Hotels has begun a companywide partnership with Habitat for Humanity. It is a great opportunity to give back to our local communities, as well as have fun at the same time. Vail Cascade Resort, a Destination Hotel, recently had the honor of helping out our local partner, Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley.
About Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley
Habitat for Humanity in the Vail Valley is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization. Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
Vail Cascade Resort, along with our sister property, Manor Vail Lodge and Destination Hotels volunteered to help out at the build site located in Gypsum on November 13, 2014. Despite blistering winter conditions, a hearty group of volunteers worked alongside the Habitat staff, crew and regular volunteers, helping to build more homes and serve more families in the Vail Valley. Partnering with very low-income families to build or rehabilitate homes is the hallmark of Habitat for Humanity’s successful approach to eliminating poverty housing one house at a time. Habitat for Humanity Vail Valley has been able to accomplish a great deal, thanks to the support of its volunteers and donors and together, we can all ensure that safe, decent housing remains within reach of deserving families.
Vail Cascade and our associates take pride in giving back to the community we live in. We thank our team of volunteers and look forward to helping with the next build site in the Vail Valley.
