THE HOTEL FOR HEROES: Free Safe Stays for Essential Workers
KINGSVILLE, ON – The Grove Hotel is proud to be a pillar in the Town of Kingsville. Anyone who knows it’s owner, the Flynn Family, knows how much they love their family and friends and the town they live in. The Flynn’s first came to the community with the opening of Southgate Retirement Residence in 1986, and later they were involved in the addition of Royal Oak Long Term Care facility on Division Road. The Flynn’s have a long-standing appreciation for the healthcare community and especially it’s workers.
“These uncertain times that we are facing together, if anything, has given us time to reflect on what is really important and what really matters. We know that it’s the members of our community, those whom we have made a connection, and its our health, happiness and the ability to see through tough times together and come out the other end – wholeheartedly, what we call Kingsville Strong”, said James Flynn.
The Grove Hotel announced today that they have decided to follow a growing list of hotels worldwide that are offering accommodations during the COVID-19 pandemic; however, The Grove Hotel has taken it a step further and will be offering safe and clean accommodations to the local essential healthcare workers, during this crisis, for FREE.
“We feel Canadians, as a whole, are doing a good job of social distancing, but realize there are many individuals who work in healthcare who selflessly continue to go to work, only to have to worry about their own health and that of their families after a long and undoubtedly physically and mentally draining shift. That’s where we think we can offer some help and peace of mind”, said Flynn. “We love and respect the work done by the heroes in our healthcare system and if we can be a small part of helping all of us get through this, we would be honored and humbled.”
If you are a local healthcare worker and need a safe place to stay to help protect yourself and your family, the Grove Hotel is happy to welcome you. The Grove Hotel is located at 12 Main Street East in Kingsville, Ontario. We can also be found on social media (Facebook and Instagram: @mygrovehotel).
