Courtleigh Hotels invites Carnival guests to give back to charities

The Courtleigh Hospitality Group property is inviting guests visiting for Carnival in Jamaica to give back.

The hotel chain is inviting its guests to donate needed supplies to local charities through its Pack For A Purpose program.

The effort is being organised in conjunction with Pack For A Purpose, a US-based nonprofit aimed at positively impacting communities around the world by assisting travelers who want to make meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit.

“Carnival in Jamaica is all about fun, and certainly our hotels are ground zero for all the action here in Kingston,” said Nicola Madden-Greig, Group Director of Marketing and Sales. 

“At the same time, though, we’re always mindful of the needy within our community who struggle to enjoy even the basics in life. We’re asking guests staying with us over the Carnival period to save a little space in their luggage to bring down supplies benefiting some truly wonderful local charities. Even the smallest donations can help a lot, and make the Carnival in Jamaica experience more meaningful and rewarding.”

All three Courtleigh Hospitlaity Group properties – The Courtleigh Hotel & Suites, The Knutsford Court Hotel, and The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel – are participating in the Pack For A Purpose program. Beneficiary charities include The Alpha Boys’ Institute, Missionaries of the Poor, Open Arms Development Center, and the Marie Atkins Shelter.

“Several of the charities we sponsor offer care and temporary housing for the homeless, so basic grooming items like soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste are highly valued,” said Madden-Greig. “School supplies for the Alpha Boys’ kids are also always appreciated.”

Donations can be made at the front desk of any of the Courtleigh Hospitality Group properties.
