Drury Hotels Pledge Funds for International Phone Cards
St. Louis, Missouri. Drury Hotels is pleased to announce that it is leading an effort to donate $10,000 for the purchase of international pre-paid long distance phone cards to be distributed to enlisted men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Phone cards will be distributed to the troops in time for a phone call home over the holidays.
In addition to the initial $10,000 donation, all guests along with anyone who would like to participate are encouraged to donate to this cause through 12/9/05 at any Drury Hotel. Cards with the names of individuals donating $2 or more to the Troops, Phone Home! effort will be displayed in the front desk area of each hotel. 100% of proceeds from the donations will go toward the purchase of additional international phone cards for men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cash donations or checks made out to the "Troops Phone Home Fund" will be accepted at any of the 100+ Drury hotels located in 17 states.
"Drury is a family-owned and operated business. We understand the importance of keeping in touch with family when away from home," explains Chuck Drury, President of Drury Inns, Inc. "We are proud of the men and women who have made the commitment to protect and serve our country. As the Holidays approach, it becomes even more important to stay close to friends and family. A simple telephone call home can mean so much."
As of December 15, 2005, we have collected and donated more than $37,000 dollars! Thank you for your generosity!
