DoubleTree by Hilton Sunrise – Sawgrass Mills, receives the Outstanding Partner Award for the second year in a row from YMCA Children Services.

“The YMCA children services is an organization that places Physically and Mentally challenged kids (18-21) in various work environments. This is one of the two programs that we work with. The YMCA is a summer program that actually pays the kids to work in various departments of the Hotel. We have them working in Laundry folding towels, and also in our Kitchen bagging cookies, bussing tables and making rollups for the tables.  The goal of the organization is to give the kids an opportunity to be independent. When they turn 21 they age out of the program. We then have the option to hire them. This year we hired one young man in our laundry department. His name is Brian and he is a great addition to our team.” – General Manager Mr. Hilly Adler

Giovanni Santana, from the YMCA of South Florida also added this about the hotel’s contribution to the local community: “I just wanted to personally thank you for your hospitality and for all that you have done for the students, job coach and myself this summer. Thank you for allowing us to be part of a great Hotel and staff. It was a pleasure meeting you, talking to you and working with you.”
