March 06, 2013 // Franchising.com // Columbus, Ohio – Red Roof Inn® is inviting its guests to help the company raise funds for Mid-Ohio Foodbank over the next two months. One of Red Roof’s corporate philanthropies, Operation Feed, helps to raise dollars and food donations for Mid-Ohio Foodbank which in turn stocks the shelves of food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters across Central Ohio. Red Roof is encouraging guests to donate one dollar or more to the Foodbank at check-in during March and April. The company will also make a separate notable donation to the organization to show its support.
“Red Roof has partnered with Mid-Ohio Foodbank and is dedicated to helping the group raise funds to help as many Mid-Ohio residents as possible,” says Marina MacDonald, SVP Sales & Marketing, Red Roof Inn. “Helping others and giving back are priorities for Red Roof and its employees.”
Upon check-in, guests will have the opportunity to donate $1 or more to Operation Feed, and those who make a donation will receive $1 off each night of their stay. To book this deal, travelers may visit redroof.com or call 800-RED-ROOF. Discount will not be applied until check-in; other discounts do not apply. Certain blackout dates may apply.
Red Roof is partnering with Mid-Ohio Foodbank during the brand’s celebration of its 40th year in business. This year, the company is offering unprecedented deals, discounts and surprises all year long.
“Ending hunger in our community cannot be solved by one organization alone. It takes government, the private sector, nonprofits and individuals working together to help those who struggle with putting food on the table,” said Matt Habash, President and CEO of Mid-Ohio Foodbank. “When companies like Red Roof Inn step up to participate in programs like Operation Feed, it allows the Foodbank to leverage its limited resources even further.”
Last year, Mid-Ohio Foodbank distributed more than 46 million pounds of food and grocery products, allowing its partner agencies in 20 counties to provide more than 102,000 meals each day. Mid-Ohio Foodbank regularly joins forces with local businesses, schools, civic groups and individuals to raise funds via inspired and passionate community-driven initiatives. Operation Feed’s goal is to deliver or supply 7.5 million meals in 2013 for individuals and families. Operation Feed has been supplying meals to Ohio’s residents for over 30 years.
