We have been very lucky to have started a successful business in Hermann, MO, where for 23 years we have been a part of birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and getaway celebrations of our guests, milestones in our staff’s lives, and hosting many benefits, meetings, and events supporting area non-profits. We’re constantly looking for new ways to give back to others in the community around us. With the help of our guests and staff, here are a few examples:
When guests leave something and ask that we mail it back to them, we enclose an envelope addressed to the Hermann Food Pantry’s backpack program for them to send the cost of the postage to help a child have food on the weekends.
If guests do not use our Hermann Hill $10 or $20 vouchers that they receive with multiple night stays, they can “gift it back” to either the Food Pantry’s backpack program or a local no-kill animal shelter.
We host many banquets and fundraisers for local civic organizations and non-profits like the Hermann Area Hospital, Hermann Volunteer Fire Department, German American Club, Hermann Economic Development Association, the Senior Prom for our local high school, and several events for the local chamber of commerce.
Hermann Hill has matched over $51,000 in charitable donations in 2018 with our matching Gift Certificate program for regional non-profit organizations. We’ve also given blankets, towels, and sheets to relief efforts around the country.
The spirit of giving has even caught on with our staff who volunteer their time to clean up the 2-miles Hermann Hill sponsors of the Katy Trail, a 243 mile hiking and biking trail just north of Hermann.
We hope 2019 will be another year for our staff and guests to “pay it forward” to others.
