Suites Hotel in North Tampa Offers Comfort -- and Entertainment -- to Domestic Violence Victims

Fairfield Inn & Suites Tampa North Donates TVs to Prevention and Shelter Agency

TAMPA BAY, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2011) - During the holidays, there are few activities more in keeping with the spirit of the season than helping those in need. The management and staff of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Tampa North are proud to show that spirit through their support for The Spring, a local domestic violence shelter. Timed to coincide with recent room renovations -- specifically new televisions being installed at the hotel -- the Fairfield Inn team donated the used televisions to shelter residents and their children.

"These televisions will help us in our mission to help the families who come to us in crisis," said Kathleen Alley, The Spring's Director of Social Enterprise. "Our families come from violent situations and often arrive at our shelter with only the clothing they are wearing. A gift like this goes a long way to help the families we serve during a difficult time in their lives."

Offering safety, hope, and renewal to abused adults and their children since 1977, The Spring is Hillsborough County's only certified Domestic Violence Prevention and Emergency Shelter Agency. One of the largest programs in the nation, The Spring also is one of the largest of Florida's 42 certified domestic violence shelters. Half of the agency's operating budget comes from private sources, including individuals, corporations, and foundations. The Spring was also the first domestic violence agency in the United States to have an accredited school on site for resident children.

"We're aware of the remarkable work that The Spring does, and we were happy to be able to help," said Katya Sljusar, General Manager of the Fairfield Inn. "The fact that we're able to support a local organization serves to further solidify our ties to our community."
