With the help of more than 40 employee volunteers, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa raised the walls on a Habitat for Humanity home in Bonita Springs, Fla. on Sept. 23, 2013. Hyatt has a long-standing relationship with Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties in Florida and has pledged 440 hours of volunteer labor this year alone.
“What better way to improve the community we call home than to help others in need improve their own lives,” said Joe Murgalo, general manager of the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa.
As part of Hyatt Thrive, Hyatt’s global corporate responsibility platform, Hyatt associates across the country serve to improve their local communities.
Volunteer efforts with groups including Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties help communities benefit from the power of more than 95,000 Hyatt associates at more than 500 hotels and resorts around the word.
Hyatt Thrive helps local communities with efforts focused on four areas:
- environmental sustainability
- economic development and investment
- education and personal advancement
- health and wellness
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa demonstrates its strong commitment to the communities of Southwest Florida with the completion of one Habitat home earlier in 2013 and the donation of two additional Habitat homes before the end of the year.
