Four Seasons Hotel Denver announces a new program for its guests, “voluntourism" - volunteering for a charitable cause while travelling or on vacation.

“We can work with our Hotel guests to create a memorable and rewarding experience while staying with us,” comments Director of Public Relations Jim Guttau. “From outdoor adventures with children to therapy on horseback, we can tailor a day not to be forgotten through our voluntourism program.”

For guests who desire to “do something good” while also experiencing new places, they connect with the Concierge Team to review opportunities available. Next, the Director of Public Relations connects the guests with the organizations to schedule the visit.

With plans to add several more partners, the Hotel has joined initially with the four following nonprofit organizations:

  • Volunteers of America, Colorado Branch - Volunteers of America (VOA) offers volunteer opportunities at its Brandon Center and Theodora House, a 118-bed shelter for homeless women, children and female veterans. Additionally, guests can work with Meals on Wheels and VOA’s monthly family volunteer projects.
  • Love Hope Strength - As the world’s leading rock-and-roll cancer foundation, Love Hope Strength turns concerts into lifesaving events. Guests can volunteer by helping register bone marrow donors at music concerts, especially at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
  • Anchor Center for Blind Children - Anchor Center for Blind Children works with children to maximize the use of any vision they may have, as well as optimizing their use of all senses. Volunteers can support the children of Anchor Center by assisting staff with programs, gardening in outdoor areas, participating in fundraisers and helping in the administrative offices.
  • Saddle Up! Foundation - Saddle Up! Foundation provides therapeutic activities on horseback for individuals with special needs, as well as their families and caregivers. Volunteers can experience the facility’s equine-assisted activities and educational horseback riding programs.

“We are committed to being a responsible and caring community partner,” finishes Guttau. “We are taking our involvement to the next step by providing our guests a way to give back when they visit Denver.”
