M3 Donates $100,000 to Support India COVID-19 Relief
Funds to provide food and medical supplies to surging communities
In support of AAHOA’s recent $100,000 donation to organizations supporting COVID-19 relief efforts in India, M3 has matched the organization’s contribution with an equal donation of $100,000 to Samaritan’s Purse, an international humanitarian aid organization providing ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts in India. The funding will provide food and medical supplies to families and hospitals throughout the nation.
India is currently averaging hundreds of thousands of new COVID-19 cases each day, leaving hospitals overwhelmed and patients unable to receive adequate care. By working with partners on the ground, Samaritan’s Purse is directly assisting individuals and providing support to India’s healthcare workers. M3’s donation will provide essential food provisions, medical supplies and assistance with operational costs to help local hospitals manage surge capacities.
“We are grateful for the incredible work of Samaritan’s Purse and other organizations providing their time, care and resources to help the people of India combat the virus,” said John McKibbon, CEO of M3 and Chairman of McKibbon Hospitality. “As hoteliers, we have experienced firsthand the struggles brought on by COVID-19 and are committed to helping those in need.”
“Many of our hospitality industry colleagues have strong ties to India, and we are very concerned with the escalating crisis the country is facing,” said Cecil P. Staton, President & CEO of AAHOA. “By matching our donation to help those who need it most, M3 has demonstrated its continuous commitment to supporting the hospitality industry however they can.”
