St. Regis Hotel donates $5000 to Strathcona Community Centre Food Programs
April 25, 2013
The St. Regis Hotel is pleased to announce that it is donating the $5000 raised through the 100th anniversary $100 room night promotion to the Strathcona Community Centre to be directed toward their food safety programs.
The Strathcona Community Centre is located less that 2km away from the St. Regis Hotel in the heart of the Downtown Eastside. Its programs offer direct support to hundreds of children and families including school day breakfasts, food education for families, food backpacks to bridge weekend food needs and more.
We visited the Centre and watched these programs in action and were incredibly impressed with the impact that the staff and volunteers have in their community and the number of programs they were able to organize and run in limited space.
As part of the 100th Anniversary celebrations, the St. Regis Hotel sold 1000 rooms nights at a special $100 rate and pledged to donate $5 from each room sold to a local charity. With the full allotment of 1000 rooms sold out, the St. Regis was pleased to make the $5000 donation to a local charity as worthy as the Strathcona Community Centre Food Programs.
