Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
Gaylord Hotels is helping support America’s injured service men and women this May and June. The hotel company has been working to support charities through its Rooms for Good program during the last year, and today announced its 2012 partnership with Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP). The internationally recognized organization works to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members. Gaylord Hotels will donate 10 percent of the proceeds raised through a special package rate booked at all four Gaylord Hotels resorts throughout May and June. Gaylord Hotels partnered with WWP in 2011 with its Rooms for Good program as well.
“We are honored to once again work with Wounded Warrior Project and support America’s injured armed forces,” said Amy A. Atkinson, vice president of marketing and public relations, Gaylord Hotels. “Our Rooms for Good program gives guests the opportunity to enjoy a fun getaway while contributing a bit to an important cause. The Rooms for Good program has allowed us to assist many great causes, and we are honored to support our country’s many brave service men and women this May and June.”
WWP’s mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. The organization seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who incur service-connected wounds, injuries and illnesses on or after September 11, 2001 by providing unique, direct programming and services tailored to meet their needs and those of their families.
“We are grateful to have been chosen as a beneficiary of Gaylord Hotels’ Room for Good program,” said Jonathan Sullivan, Development, Wounded Warrior Project. “Our mission is assisted through the generosity of our corporate supporters and their customers who connect with the cause of honoring and empowering our nation’s heroes.”
