SCOTTSDALE/FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
On May 20, 2013, members of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group Business School and Radisson Fort McDowell Resort donated 150 backpacks full of school supplies to local Yavapai Nation area schools.
Michael Brown, Lead Teacher at the Hmañ ’shawa Early Childhood Development Center and seven local students accepted the backpacks, which were assembled by 78 business school participants. The backpacks will be distributed to K-5 students during a back-to-school event in late July.
“We are extremely grateful for the generous donation of school supplies,” said Bill Myhr, Education Director at Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. “In the past, we were able to provide students with backpacks each year, but recent funding cuts have made that impossible to do without help from benefactors like Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and Radisson Fort McDowell Resort.”
This spring, Radisson Fort McDowell Resort hosted the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group Business School, a mobile continuing-education school for employees of Carlson Rezidor Hotels. Together, the groups decided to continue a tradition of engaging in socially responsible initiatives to benefit children in the community by donating to local Yavapai Nation students.
