HMSHost’s ‘Give Love, Get Love’ Teddy Bear Supports Feeding America

BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HMSHost offers travelers through many of the nation’s busiest airports and travel plazas the opportunity to accomplish some holiday shopping while also making a donation to Feeding America® and fighting hunger across the U.S.

“We are glad to partner with HMSHost on the Give Love, Get Love promotion. Millions of travelers this holiday season will have an opportunity to give a gift that will make its recipient smile, while at the same time represent a much-needed donation to America’s food insecure”

HMSHost, a world leader in creating dining and shopping for travel venues, is offering a plush teddy bear for purchase at HMSHost retail locations including the Atlanta, Minneapolis, Phoenix and Tampa airports and in travel plaza locations, such as the Maryland House and Delaware Welcome Center on the East Coast’s Interstate 95. The bear will go on sale Monday, November 21st just as the busy 2011 holiday travel season begins.

The cuddly Give Love, Get Love bears sell for $15. From that, $4 will go directly to Feeding America. This $4 donation translates to the ability for Feeding America to provide 32 meals for America’s hungry.

“We are excited about this first-ever retail program with Feeding America that gives travelers an opportunity to make a difference in so many lives,” said Joan Ryzner, senior vice president of retail at HMSHost. “We are proud of HMSHost’s expanding partnership with Feeding America, as hunger is too often an unseen issue in America, and one that knows no barriers across our culture. Every community in which HMSHost operates, and where our associates live, is affected by hunger in some way.”

Feeding America is the national anti-hunger organization that works to provide low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive by providing food and meals to more than 37 million low-income individuals and families each year, including 14 million children and 3 million seniors.

“We are glad to partner with HMSHost on the Give Love, Get Love promotion. Millions of travelers this holiday season will have an opportunity to give a gift that will make its recipient smile, while at the same time represent a much-needed donation to America’s food insecure,” said Ian Hunter, Director of New Partnerships at Feeding America.

Throughout the holiday season, HMSHost’s retail in-store Traveler’s Information Network (closed circuit TVs) will feature a Feeding America public service announcement.
