The Doubletree Biltmore Hotel in conjunction with Estes Elementary School and Manna Food Bank helped collect 1,805 non-perishable items which weighed in at 1,866. The total amount was enough to make 1,472 meals for hungry families throughout Western North Carolina.
Doubletree staff visited over 20 classrooms in Estee Elementary, covering each grade level, to speak about the importance of caring for others. The initiative was a part of the Teaching Kids to CARE program, which is conducted twice a year by employees at the Doubletree Biltmore.
“In the end, to be able to really teach kids to care and see them accomplish this goal is truly rewarding,” said Diana Blackett, a Doubletree Supervisor and organizer of this year’s event. “I am grateful for the people who take part in this great need everyday.”
