Hilton (NYSE:HLT) and American Express (NYSE:AXP) today announced that the companies, in partnership with Hilton’s ownership community, will donate up to 1 million hotel room nights across the United States to frontline medical professionals leading the fight against COVID-19.
Beginning next week, Hilton and American Express will make rooms available without charge to doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and other frontline medical staff who need a place to sleep, recharge or isolate from their families through the end of May.
A health emergency such as the one we are experiencing will surely leave us with a different world from the one we know, which will strip away what is accessory (as crises usually do) and offer us an environment with new opportunities to innovate, improve and work to impact society in a positive way. Uncertainty reigns, but I have no doubt that companies are the agents best prepared to face change, assume leadership and provide solutions to social challenge,- which are not-and will not be-few.
Amid COVID-19, as industry leaders we must remember our long-term commitments to ALL our stakeholders.
I continue to be inspired by those on the frontline – the first responders, everyone on Team Dow and all our partners – who continue to keep us safe, keep us informed, and keep us moving forward through this COVID-19 crisis. I applaud you.
I also want to share a heartfelt thank you to my colleagues in our industry.
