Imagine purchasing a hotel that is to be repurposed and having to figure out what to do with the contents of its 150 fully furnished rooms, lobby and restaurant.
Wallick contemplated hiring a company to take everything away but then devised a more creative solution: donate these items to area nonprofits.
This week and next, Wallick will distribute hundreds of items—beds, linens, towels, furniture, appliances and more—to four local charities.
Wallick’s Heart of Service Committee coordinated the effort. Heart of Service is an associate-led group tasked with engaging the company’s associates in giving through service.
