Teneo Hospitality Group has partnered with the Kids in Need Foundation to raise money to purchase teacher supply boxes for classrooms in need in each city they visit for their new CSR initiative. Teneo's goal is to supply at least two boxes of school supplies in five classrooms in every city they visit, which would mean more than 100 students would be impacted in each city.

Teneo launched this CSR initiative on April 23 and are working toward a goal of $1,500 at each event they host. "We're excited to share the feedback we receive along the way!" says Ashley Crunstedt, CMP, Teneo director of events.

The Kids in Need Foundation, which has all of the supplies for the packages, helps with putting together the packages and shipping supplies directly to local schools that they've determined are most in need. With their help, Teneo is able to help schools while keeping their carbon footprint to a minimum. 

"We have a passion for partnerships and giving back all year round," Crunstedt says. "We wanted to work with an organization that has a national presence, but that makes an impact on a local level."

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in
