Hotel Near Luke Air Force Base Helps Empower Women Through New Life Program

SpringHill Suites Phoenix Glendale Sports & Entertainment District Serves Breakfast & Hope

GLENDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2013) - In the center of the city's major sports venues, the SpringHill Suites Phoenix Glendale Sports & Entertainment District offers more than just a hotel; it's part of an ever-growing community that includes a wide variety of business owners, Air Force members, long-time residents and tourists. While its focus is to provide a home away from home for visitors, this hotel near Luke AFB also makes it a point to give back to the community that supports it.

In a joint effort with the Luke Air Force Base, this lodging in Glendale, AZ lent its time to New Life, an area shelter that offers assistance to women who are victims of domestic violence. The hotel staff helped bring and serve breakfast to families in need, and was able to sit down and connect with the women and children who have been impacted by domestic violence.

"This was an amazing heartfelt opportunity to connect and have community involvement," Delia Defreitas, General Manager, says. "We plan to continue to visit the shelter on a quarterly basis."

The New Life shelter offers a comprehensive 120-day program to help empower families impacted by domestic violence and get them started on living independently. The program provides safe Glendale lodging in addition to clothing, food and bedding since most women arrive with hardly any of their personal belongings.
