COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan 31, 2022 – Red Roof®, the leader in economy lodging, continues its successful giving campaign this year with its newest ‘Room in Your Heart’ (RIYH)* purpose program, benefiting Canine Companions®. Canine Companions transforms the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly trained service dogs that assist with practical tasks, as well as provide unconditional love and acceptance, all completely free of charge. This powerful relationship leads to increased independence, self-esteem, and inclusion for a person with a disability.
“Red Roof has a deep commitment to causes near and dear which help those in need. This sentiment is exemplified through our Room in Your Heart purpose program, which through promotional and giving initiatives, supports diverse groups and the individuals and issues they serve,” says Marina MacDonald, Chief Marketing Officer, Red Roof. “Our partnership with Canine Companions will help provide canine support and love to those in need.”
Throughout February, Red Roof’s valued guests who book a stay at a Red Roof Inn®, Red Roof PLUS+®, HomeTowne Studios by Red Roof®, or The Red Collection® property will benefit and will help benefit others in need. Guests will save 15% on their stay at any of these Red Roof properties, and 5% of the revenue from their stay booked and completed by February 28 goes to support Canine Companions. Guests may book directly using VP code 628903 at redroof.com, by calling 800.RED.ROOF, or at a participating property. The promotion begins on February 1 and ends February 28, 2022.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of Red Roof through their Room in Your Heart purpose program,” says Jeanine Konopelski, Vice President Marketing and Advocacy, Canine Companions. “The connection between humans and animals can be transformative and we can’t thank future travelers enough for their compassion and commitment to our mission as they make travel plans this February.”
Previous Room in Your Heart philanthropic campaigns have been impactful for selected organizations, including the American Cancer Society®, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, The Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the USO®, and more. In 2021, Red Roof partnered with United Way* to promote and support 211, a free, confidential referral and information helpline and website that connects people of all ages and from all communities to the essential health and human services they need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
