Four Seasons San Francisco launches new summer “Voluntourism” program

Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco Launches New Summer “Voluntourism” Program. Guests booking Bed and Breakfast package can enjoy luxury accommodations while giving back to the San Francisco community.

Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco announces the introduction of a new “voluntourism” program that offers guests the opportunity to give back to the San Francisco community this summer. Guests who book the Bed and Breakfast package are encouraged to help pack care packages for women and children seeking refuge at the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco’s Riley Center, a nonprofit community organisation dedicated to providing safe and confidential services for women in abusive relationships.

“The Riley Center is an important organisation that does so much for families in our community, and it is near and dear to the hearts of our staff here at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco,” said Doug Housley, general manager. “We wanted to offer our guests a rewarding opportunity to support a local organisation that is meaningful to us, while enjoying San Francisco.”

A Care Package Kit will be provided to guests to assemble a bag for women and children at the Riley Center. Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco will provide inclusions for the children’s bags, including clothing, books, school supplies, educational toys, colouring books, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and stickers, in addition to offerings for the women’s bags, including books, toiletries, slippers, and more. Guests will also receive a map of locations to purchase their own Care Package inclusions should they choose. For a personal touch, each guest may include an inspirational note or personalised bookmark. Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco will deliver assembled bags to the Riley Center on a regular basis.

There is no better time for guests to enjoy themselves with renowned Four Seasons service and premiere facilities, while giving back to San Francisco. The Bed and Breakfast package is available until September 5, 2011 and includes the following:


Luxurious accommodations
Full American breakfast for two people daily;  in Seasons restaurant or through In-Room Dining (alcohol and gratuity not included)
