Being in the hotel business, it is difficult to not desire to share the warmth of hospitality with everyone. As a result, MMI has been recognized for decades for its commitment to communities far and wide.
Our primary focus is on the team members who create these experiences. As a result, local Boys & Girls Clubs of America affiliates have been named as one of MMI's primary giving programs. With many of our team members being alumni or having family currently benefiting from the programs that Boys & Girls Clubs is recognized for, we could not resist the opportunity to focus on the family. Each of our hotels works in different ways to invest in their mission and leverage the MMI Matching Funds Program to further their impact.
We recognize that travelers' time spent in our hotels is also an opportunity to benefit the greater community. Guests can opt out of daily housekeeping services and instead commit the hotel to making a contribution to Give Kids the World in their honor. This worthwhile organization hosts families from across the country every day providing countless positive memories for children diagnosed with illnesses. This is just one example of how MMI engages in paying it forward.
As a company, MMI is an active steward in supporting the communities in which it is a citizen.
It begins with our corporate headquarters where MMI Hotel Group is an active member of the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson. The Foundation is a charitable, grant-making entity which oversees the distribution of funds contributed to its many worthwhile efforts. Donors, like MMI, rely on the Foundation's vast network and knowledge of non-profit giving.
