More than 50 associates from the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, FL will volunteer with the Bonita Springs chapter of Habitat for Humanity to refurbish two local Habitat Homes. With hammers and tape measures ready, Hyatt associates including General Manager Joe Murgalo will hang drywall and work on soffits under the instruction of Habitat supervisors.
“Our company is powered by human care and human spirit and I can’t think of a better way to do our part in the local community than to help others get a hand up,” said General Manager Joe Murgalo.
