Fairfield Inn And Suites Chattanooga And 3H Group Hotels Collaborate With Local Habitat For Humanity Chapter

Monday, November 14, 2016

Fairfield Inn & Suites Chattanooga, Fairfield Inn & Suites Chattanooga South/East Ridge, and 3H Group Hotels teamed up with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga for Fairfield by Marriott’s annual Rally to Serve initiative.

Rally to Serve is a Fairfield Inn & Suites program that serves the community to benefit Habitat for Humanity International. The national Rally to Serve initiative engages Fairfield Inn & Suites associates, owners, franchisees and guests to help Habitat for Humanity continue its work in providing decent, affordable housing for families in need.

This year, the two Chattanooga Fairfield Inn & Suites hotels, along with members of the 3H staff, worked together to paint the interior of a home. The teams worked together to prime, paint, and seal every wall and ceiling of the brand-new house. While the work was grueling, it was rewarding for all involved.

“We have worked with the local Chattanooga Habitat for Humanity chapter in the past, and every project is just as rewarding as the last. Participating in Fairfield’s Rally to Serve Initiative is always worthwhile and we always take advantage of any opportunity presented to us to give back to our local community,” said Bob Gopar, general manager of Fairfield Inn & Suites Chattanooga.

The home is set to be completed around Christmas time – just in time for the holidays for the very deserving family. This home is one of the many homes that the local Habitat for Humanity chapter annually provides to low-income families.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga partners with volunteers and low income families to build affordable homes that are sold to local families at no profit and with no interest.

The best example came on Saturday when a reporter for Campus Reform walked around the Cal State-Santa Barbara campus asking the students ... (click for more)
