Support the Milwaukee Westin Staff

Amid the current challenges COVID-19 presents for many of us, I’m reaching out with a way to support the Westin staff – many of whom have been laid off but made our time traveling to MKE more welcoming and enjoyable. 

For as long as we have travelled to Milwaukee and stayed at the Westin, we all have great memories of socializing, working and having a great time at the Westin. During those times there are many people at the Westin that made us comfortable, some have become friends and all have always worked hard to make us feel welcome. I was saddened to learn that the restrictions in travel due to COVID-19 has resulted in all but 2-3 of the Westin staff being laid off. Most if not all the servers, cleaners, support staff are all without a job with an uncertain future as to when they can return. As we reflected on how difficult it must be for them and their families, we thought if possible we should try and do what we can to support the staff at the Westin by raising and giving what we can.

You can give in two ways: 
-  Give to this gofundme page and we will upon reaching our target provide these funds to Amanda Ramsfield the Director of HR for White Lodging Group who own the Westin, Marriott and Springhill suites, designating this for the Westin Staff.
-  Give directly to Amanda Ramsfield at Whitelodging, you can either designate it for the Westin, Marriott or Springhill suites or to be shared across the staff for all of the hotels using the venmo handle (@Milwaukee_Hotel_Collection)

I do not have any affiliation to the Westin or White Lodging Group, just a frequent traveler with lots of good memories of the Westin wanting to help.
