Downtown Denver’s only full-service Hilton hotel steps up to help the city’s underprivileged residents. Hilton Denver City Center is collaborating with Denver-based non-profit, Sock It To Em’ to collect new socks for those in need. According to organization’s founder, Sue Lee, socks are the most-frequently-requested item at homeless shelters. To help those most in need, the hotel set a goal of collecting 1,000 pairs of socks.
The donation drive will run through December 22, 2018. Hilton Denver City Center will accept new socks in their lobby, as well as at various group meetings and event functions hosted at the hotel.
“We are very excited to partner with ‘Sock It To Em’ and give back to our local community,” said Eric Walters, General Manager of Hilton Denver City Center. “Recently, Hilton announced a global commitment to doubling our social impact and reducing our environmental footprint in half by 2030, as part of our Travel With Purpose corporate responsibility platform. By partnering with local non-profits, Hilton Denver City Center is directly contributing to our company’s ambitious corporate responsibility goals and giving back to a great cause.”
As an added incentive to participate in the drive, the property’s catering team is offering a 10 percent discount on new meeting and event functions for on-site groups of 20+ who participate in this charitable giveback opportunity. Contact the hotel for more information at 303-263-1767.
