Long Island, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Volunteering to support community projects is an important initiative to one of the premier Long Island Hotels, UPSKY Long Island. Staff members are assisting with one of Long Island’s most vital charities, Island Harvest.
Island Harvest has become one of Long Island’s largest hunger relief organizations. Millions of pounds of surplus food is now delivered to over 570 Long Island based food pantries, soup kitchens, and other non-profit organizations.
By partnering with Island Harvest, UPSKY Hotel (previously known as Sheraton Long Island Hauppauge) is assisting in the mission to help end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island.
During the month of September, a national initiative sponsored by Feeding America, UPSKY Long Island is helping to raise awareness about hunger in local communities and end unnecessary food waste.
UPSKY Long Island proudly recognizes the value of community and the first ever event the hotel participated in contributed to 1,200 lbs. of food. In addition, the hotel is also participating by implementing "Island Harvest" promotion at registration where participants will receive a free cinnamon bun for wearing orange or saying “Island Harvest”. Social media initiatives also include turning one’s Facebook profile pic orange to show support for Hunger Action Month.
