Hotel in Albany, NY Offers Helping Hands to Habitat for Humanity

TownePlace Suites Albany Downtown/Medical Center Associates Donate Time to a Good Cause

ALBANY, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - Associates at the TownePlace Suites Albany Downtown/Medical Center are used to helping out. Each day at this extended-stay hotel in Albany, they dedicate their effort into ensuring guests have the most comfortable stay possible. So when it came to deciding to participate in Habitat for Humanity, there was no question: They were ready to chip in.

On April 12th, 17 employees of this pet-friendly hotel approximately 15 minutes away from the airport made their way to 67 Delaware St. in downtown Albany, where they spent the day building a home for a local family in need.

"This was an exciting kick-off to our Habitat for Humanity campaign," Jake Hendrickson, sales manager at this hotel near St. Peters Hospital said. "We had an excellent turn out, did a lot of work and had a great time doing it. I was very proud to be part of our TPS community action team and am looking forward, with great anticipation, to our next event. We appreciate everyone at our local Habitat for Humanity chapter that helped organize our group and made us as useful and productive as we could have been."

Since it was founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped build or repair more than 600,000 homes and helped more than 3 million people worldwide. To learn more, visit
