The Calvary Chapel teenagers' yearly mission trip takes them to the Dominican Republic. While there they spend time with the children at an orphanage and work in a Haitian refugees camp. For the last several years 3H Group Hotels have allowed the teens to sell their corporate office parking spots during Riverbend to raise funds for this trip.

Over the last two years the group, led by Youth Pastor Kenny Engles and coordinated by Meleah Smith, has raised between $10,000 and $11,000 by selling these parking spots for Riverbend. This is one of the many ways that 3H Group Hotels, led by CEO Hiren Desai, gives back to the community that gives so much to us.

We are helping local teens have the opportunity to serve globally, and we are thankful to be able to contribute in this manner.

Bob Dollinger, Vice President of Operations, 3H Group Hotels
