Our Community

Giving Back

Old Edwards Hospitality has been part of the Highlands community for a long time and we hope to be here for a lot longer.  We are proud to live and work on the Plateau, and we know that a strong community is the backbone of a strong company. Our organization and our employees, look for ways to give back each year.

     


Some initiatives that we’ve focused on in recent years are:

Making a smaller footprint on
the environment by implementing
sustainable practices
that keep our
environment cleaner—both locally
and beyond.

Supporting local schools and
students through scholarships
and providing supplies—like
iPads for students—as well
as our employees coaching
sports teams and volunteering
in needed positions.

Fostering economic growth by supporting local 
businesses, festivals and other
organizations—like the
Chamber of Commerce--
that help bring visitors to the area.

 Supporting the
Highlands-Cashiers
Humane Society
 with donations.
While most of our hotel rooms are
pet-free due to potential
allergies for our guests, we LOVE
animals! Our employees have adopted some of the very
best dogs and cats in the world!

Supporting many local non-profit
organizations through fundraisers, donations of funds, equipment,
meeting spaces as well as auction
items and volunteer hours.

Feeding and supporting those in
need within the community through the Food Pantry,
Literacy Council, Friendship Center as well as the
Town of Highlands government.

Recycling discarded soap bars
and plastic bottles through
Clean the World.


Donating time to sit on local boards, 
to proctor at the schools and coach sports 
teams, and mentor local as well as
international individuals who
want to learn skills appropriate for a career in hospitality.

Removing litter from roadsides each year when crews
of employees participate in the
annual Plateau Pick-up event.
This year we gathered over 75 bags of trash!
