Our hotel has always been a big supporter of the Tigard community and we’re always looking for ways to be more involved.

The Embassy Suites Portland-Washington Square hotel staff is proud to partner together in order to collect school supplies to benefit Oregon students. The hotel accepted donations from the staff from August 8 to August 10th, 2012 to supply the rummage. “Those who brought in donations helped ensure the sale was a huge success supporting each other’s families at the start of a new school year,” commented Director of Catering, Kim McCandlish.

The Embassy Suites Portland-Washington Square has conducted fundraisers for two years now in order to purchase and supply students with the much needed supplies. The entire staff understands the great need to ensure students are prepared for the upcoming school year. “Our hotel has always been a big supporter of the Tigard community and we’re always looking for ways to be more involved,” says General Manager, Gary Upton.

The Embassy Suites Portland-Washington Square aimed to collect enough financial support to purchase school supplies to equip at least 57 students for the school year. The entire staff had no doubt that they would achieve this, based on the generosity of guests and the community through previous drives. Lynn White, Human Resource Director says, “We have far surpassed our past records allowing us to provide so much more for these students!”
