DelSuites exists because we believe cities are communities—and the best hospitality, whether you’re traveling, recovering from crisis, or new in town, is living right inside our community. In April 2020, COVID-19 made working together more important than ever. When DelSuites heard about two chances to help our neighbours most in need—Newcomers and Torontonians without homes—as DelSuites president Dan Henderson said, “We jumped at the opportunity.”
In April 2020, DelSuites donated approximately 22-25 entire apartments’ worth of furniture (valued at $120,000) to two programs: the emergency housing effort, and the Transitional Housing Program for Newcomers to Toronto, which temporarily hosts new Torontonians until they can find permanent homes. More recently in June 2021, DelSuites donated an additional 13 furnished suites with a face value of 55K to shelters, supporting the City of Toronto Rapid Rehousing Program
This past year has been a difficult time for the hospitality industry, but in hard times, communities pull together. DelSuites is proud to have partnered with the City of Toronto to help provide comfortable, stable homes for the people who need it most in our city. We’re glad to have the opportunity to make a positive impact, and underline the belief that’s at the core of why we provide comfortable, community-based, flexible accommodations—homes away from home—every day of the week.
That a little thoughtfulness goes the extra mile, that a comfortable place to sleep at night matters, and that providing good hospitality starts at home—and as part of the community.
