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.
After Hurricane Florence, our corporate team stepped in to support employees working at the SpringHill Suites in Lumberton, NC who were affected by the widespread flooding that damaged a number of homes and structures. North Point Hospitality hosted a relief drive in Savannah, Georgia to collect much-needed supplies. Items donated included boxes of toiletries, cleaning supplies and necessities which filled two vans and an entire U-Haul trailer to deliver to Lumberton. North Point Hospitality’s initiative to invest their time and efforts for their employees emphasizes their passion and commitment and makes them an employer of choice.
Fight Dirty Tybee
Savannah team members and their families volunteered their time to help clean the beach with Fight Dirty Tybee through Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers. Tybee Clean Beach Volunteers is a grass-roots organization made up of volunteers that sweep Tybee’s beaches free of trash on a regular basis. Staff members spent over an hour combing through wrack and cleaned up thousands of cigarette butts, bottle caps, plastic debris and trash.
Habitat for Humanity
Alongside area business leaders, Executive Vice President Whip Triplett participated in a CEO Build through the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity. This national program allows top executives to come together and help transform their communities by working alongside local, hardworking families to build a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. This house just happens to belong to a member of the local hospitality industry.

Susan G. Komen of Coastal Georgia
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, 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.
