About The Fairmont Residential Colleague Emergency Relief Fund
It is with a very heavy heart that we continue to witness the devastating aftermath of the Category 5 Hurricane Otis in Acapulco, Mexico on October 25th. Acapulco Diamante was devastated by the storm and has been closed since the hurricane struck. The entire city of Acapulco and surrounding communities have sustained long-lasting damage to all infrastructure (water, power, etc.) all of which causing extreme economic hardship to the community and our employees. We are happy to confirm that 100% of our team are safe, but many, if not all, have suffered great loss and damage in many areas.
The full extent of the hurricane's wrath will not be known for months. In the meantime, the well-being of our Fairmont Heritage Place Acapulco Diamante colleagues is our greatest concern. We have been actively gathering resources of support for them and their families who are enduring unprecedented hardships throughout this incredibly tragic and challenging time.
More assistance would be greatly appreciated for our team in Acapulco, and to that end, we have created the Fairmont Residential Employee Emergency Relief Fund. This fund will currently provide immediate and longer-term financial assistance to our Fairmont Heritage Place Acapulco Diamante colleagues by supporting emergency financial resources for repair of housing, food, transportation, medical care, clothing, and other unanticipated costs created by Hurricane Otis and its subsequent economic impact.
This Fund has been established at Charitable Ventures, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Federal Tax ID# 20-8756660) that administers relief funds and charitable projects. As a tax-exempt nonprofit organization, Charitable Ventures will provide tax receipts for all donations to this relief fund. We appreciate your consideration and contribution of any size.
