WHG IN THE COMMUNITY
Wisconsin Hospitality Group holds to a fundamental belief that a business in the neighborhood must make the neighborhood its business. WHG takes an active involvement in many charities and community efforts throughout Wisconsin. To date, we have donated well over one million dollars in support of these needed programs.
Camp Heartland, which provides emotional support for children affected by HIV/AIDS, has been one of WHG's leading charitable partners. Founder and Wisconsin native, Neil Willenson, has grown Camp Heartland into a national organization and is presently in work taking Camp Heartland's efforts internationally. In our seventh year of support of Camp Heartland, WHG would like to thank our staff and our guests for their generous time and contributions to such a worthy cause.
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, another major organization WHG supports, is among the leading children's hospitals across the country. WHG proudly supports the hospital through an annual fundraising drive and has been doing so for over seven years.
THE ALMA CENTER
The Alma Center is a community based non-profit agency in Milwaukee dedicated to elminating violence and abuse in intimate relationships, families and the community. WHG holds an annual toy-drive and donates hundreds of toys to kids who are victims of family violence.
PENNIES FOR PATIENTS
Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!
FREE SCHOOL PROGRAM: "A" IS FOR APPLEBEE'S
We partner with many schools around Wisconsin with this program that motivates and rewards students toward academic excellence. School systems or individual teachers are welcome to participate in this free program.
FREE SCHOOL PROGRAM: MORE HANDS IN THE KITCHEN
Teachers! Take your class through a day in the life of a restaurant manager. WHG offers class tours in our Applebee's or Pizza Hut restaurants to learn what we do everyday to serve the millions of guests that visit us every year.
FREE SCHOOL PROGRAM: BOOK IT!
BOOK IT! motivates children to read by rewarding their reading accomplishments with praise, recognition and Pizza Hut pizza. A literacy activity that parents can participate in, BOOK IT! was created in 1985 and has since grown to 22 million students strong.
Pizza Hut is proud of all BOOK IT! readers! The restaurant managers and team congratulate every child for meeting the monthly reading goal and reward them with a free, one-topping Personal Pan Pizza!
We also encourage volunteerism within our company. WHG has embarked on a community-service program of which we are most proud called Hospitality Heroes. Hospitality Heroes is a program of WHG design which is dedicated to taking care of our neighbors across the state.
