FAIRBORN — Employees from Holiday Inn Dayton-Fairborn recently rolled up their sleeves to help Habitat for Humanity build a new home in the community for disenfranchised victims of the Rwandan genocide.
This month, those same Holiday Inn Dayton-Fairborn employees continued their charitable outreach initiative by presenting new vacuum cleaners they purchased to the first of 12 local families in need who are in line to receive new homes from Habitat in 2017.
To raise the funds for the vacuums, Holiday Inn Dayton-Fairborn employees are participating in an ongoing “Casual Friday” campaign, in which they pay $5 to wear jeans to work. Participants from every department in the hotel generously contribute to the cause, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to buy the vacuum cleaners to donate. Each vacuum costs around $100, so the employees have a $1.200 goal for this year. The Holiday Inn team plans on continuing the tradition into next year, as well.
Holiday Inn Dayton-Fairborn employees also presented a new vacuum to another Habitat family, Alicia Wakefield and her daughter, Alashia.
