On October 26th, EMBASSY SUITES SARATOGA along with HILTON GARDEN INN CLIFTON PARK and the HOMEWOOD SUITES CLIFTON PARK celebrated Hilton Worldwide’s Annual Global Month of Service by helping to strengthen the community by working at our Washington Street home and at Franklin Community Center (FCC). 16 volunteers spent a day of service improving the grounds around our home and of FCC’s.
“These two organizations, Franklin Community Center and Saratoga Bridges, are tremendous community partners,” said Dan Fortier, General Manager at Embassy Suites. Saratoga is a giving community and we’re proud to be partnering with these organizations and being part of the supportive community of Saratoga!” Their efforts revitalized the landscape surrounding our home. Certainty we didn’t have the man power to accomplish what the Hilton folks did, and we are extremely appreciative of all the hard work. Thank you so much!
