AmericInn Hotels Around the Country to Celebrate Veterans Day With Special Events Supporting Military Families

CHANHASSEN, MN - (Marketwire - Oct 30, 2012) - In honor of the upcoming Veterans Day national holiday, AmericInn hotels around the country are organizing special community events during the week of November 11, preparing gift packages of toys, games and family fun activities for delivery to military families in their local areas. The Veterans Day initiative, called "Celebrating Our Hometown Heroes," is part of an on-going national commitment by AmericInn to support members of the military and their families.

"We are pleased to celebrate Veterans Day by leading community events that show appreciation for the service of military families," said Paul Kirwin, president and CEO of AmericInn. "Our 2012 Veterans Day activities will focus on preparing gift packages that promote family time and togetherness for the spouses, children, parents and partners of military members," he added.

During the week of Veterans Day (November 11), managers and employees of AmericInn hotels will be organizing special events encompassing local businesses, civic organizations, veterans groups and citizen volunteers to create the gift packages. They will be distributed in cooperation with local military support organizations including the Blue Star Mothers, National Guard and VFW Posts.

AmericInn has sponsored numerous initiatives over the past several years to support members of the military as part of an overall "AmericInn Cares" commitment to caring, involvement and patriotism. At the 2012 AmericInn Annual Convention earlier this year, attendees prepared hundreds of gift-filled tote bags and assembled bicycles and stuffed animals for donation to military families.

AmericInn has been recognized with two awards by the Department of Defense for its support of the military, the "Seven Seals Award" and the "Above and Beyond" Award. AmericInn also offers a national discount to active duty and retired members of the military and their dependents. They can receive this discount by requesting the AmericInn Military Rate (rate code: MIL) when they make their reservation at a hotel, or by calling the toll free telephone number 1-800-634-3444. A military I.D. is also required at check-in.
