Volunteers help Habitat, Surfrider

PO‘IPU — In recognition of the launch of Hyatt Thrive, a newly introduced global corporate responsibility platform, 20 Grand Hyatt Kaua‘i associates volunteered in the community, a news release states.

They engaged in three volunteer days with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, June 15-17,  and worked with Surfrider Foundation on a beach clean-up on June 19 at Shipwreck Beach, fronting the hotel.

This volunteer effort is key tenet of the new initiative, which brings Hyatt associates from around the world together in a common effort to volunteer in their communities. Hyatt Thrive empowers over 85,000 Hyatt associates at more than 450 properties around the world to help communities do one thing – Thrive – by focusing on four areas: environmental sustainability; economic development and investment; education and personal advancement; and health and wellness, the release states.

“We are dedicated to our island community and our associates are honored to be able to give back to our community by working with Habitat for Humanity and Surfrider Foundation,” said Doug Sears, general manager.  “Hyatt Thrive is a natural extension of Hyatt’s mission to provide authentic hospitality by making a difference in the lives of people we come in contact with every day.”
