North Point Hospitality is committed to excellence in everything we do, and that goes beyond our hotel experience and into the community. Giving back to others it's what we do. Our commitment to excellence in our hotels and to our customers reaches out to our communities, too. Thanks to our valued customer support and the generosity of our employees, we are better able to help those in need. If we all do our part, we can make a difference.
Susan G. Komen of Coastal Georgia launched the inaugural "Big Wig Campaign" September 15, 2014. Gina Peper, the VP of Sales & Marketing for North Point Hospitality Group, was one of 10 community leaders (Bigwigs, if you will) to lead the campaign. To assist in raising funds for the campaign, Gina implemented "Jeans Friday" for the month of October where employees could make a donation to the campaign and wear jeans on a Friday in October. The campaign's main goal was to help under-insured women in the Coastal Georgia region receive access to breast health care. The team began with a team goal of $10,000 and met that within the first week. In the end, the campaign raised over $30,000 for early detection of breast cancer.
Representatives from North Point Hospitality help stock the shelves at America's Second Harvest Food Bank. Each day the food bank receives truck loads of donated goods that need to be unpackaged, organized and then placed on the shelves of their 30,000 square foot warehouse. With a very limited staff, the organization relies heavily on volunteers in the community to assist in this process.
