As we honor mothers on their special day for all they do to create a good life for their families, we also wanted to give them a gift that allows them to shape the life of their communities.
New York (Vocus) April 21, 2010
On May 9th, 18 Loews Hotels across North America will celebrate Mother’s Day with a special brunch that feeds the body as well as the mind. To mark the twentieth anniversary of their Good Neighbor Policy, Loews will give moms a $20 gift card to help fund educational projects through Loews Hotels’ new charitable partner DonorsChoose.org, a web-based nonprofit that supports public schools in need. This special gift from Loews will enable moms to support specific school projects or education in geographic communities that are most meaningful to them.
“As we honor mothers on their special day for all they do to create a good life for their families, we also wanted to give them a gift that allows them to shape the life of their communities,” said Jonathan Tisch, Loews Hotels Chairman and CEO. DonorsChoose.org is one of many charities highlighted in Tisch’s new book “CITIZEN YOU: Doing Your Part to Change the World” that encourages readers to integrate active citizenship into their lives in easy and meaningful ways that make a difference.
