We’ll be highlighting RoomFunding™ projects here on our blog. Next up is The Arc of Texas…
A little bit about The Arc of Texas
The Arc of Texas creates opportunities for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to actively participate in their communities and make the choices that affect their lives in a positive manner. Through their work they provide advocacy, training and information for individuals and their families. They also support over 30 member chapters that provide local services all throughout Texas.
Why we love this project
Every year they host their Inclusion Works! Conference. The conference provides learning opportunities for parents and school staff to improve skills in collaborating to educate students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Their RoomFunding project will provide scholarships for 12 families to attend the conference. By attending, parents will be able to learn how to effectively advocate for themselves and their children.
If we can get 3,000 room nights for them, then we can fund scholarships for the families of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
How you can help
For every room night that actualizes, Hotels for Hope donates $2 to The Arc of Texas’ RoomFunding project…at no cost to you. But they need your help to reach their goal of 3,000 room nights. How do you do that, you ask? There are two simple ways to do this…
- Book room nights from your next business trip or a personal stay. Every room night matters and gets them closer to reaching their goal.
- Commit your next meeting or event. If your company hosts meetings or conferences, you could support The Arc of Texas in a bigger way. Whether you are organizing a conference, meeting, board retreat, sporting event, festival, or large consumer event…we’ve got your back. Our services and technology will make planning these events much easier.
So what do you say, can you help The Arc of Texas out?
