Community Investment

At Towne Park, our values of treating people with respect, caring for others and our deep commitment to service is core to who we are. We’re dedicated to creating memorable experiences and making a difference in the lives of all those we interact with – our teams, our clients, our customers, and our communities.

Mobilizing Dreams

Mobilizing Dreams™ is our commitment to mobilize our hospitality expertise and resources to help our associates, their families and kids in the local communities overcome obstacles and fulfill their dreams.

We invest financial resources, dedicate the skills of our employees and develop partnerships that enhance the communities where we live and work.

Make a Wish

Through the Towne Park Foundation, we make grants and engage our volunteers in three Mobilizing Dreams focus areas:

  • Dreams for Kids: creating VIP experiences for kids facing health obstacles so they can experience moments of joy
  • Dream Scholars: providing access to scholarships and training so Towne Park associates and their families can achieve their goals
  • Dreams Restored: rallying to help associates get the financial and personal support they need in crisis situations so they can move beyond hardship

We believe it is our responsibility to contribute and make an impact in the communities we so proudly serve and build vibrant, sustainable neighborhoods for all.

Towne Park Foundation

Since the Towne Park Foundation’s inception, more than a million dollars has been invested in local and children’s non-profits, scholarships for higher education and support of our employees in times of hardship.

Dreams Restored – Employee Relief Fund

The unprecedented challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic had an immediate impact on our teams, families and our communities. We have been committed to doing what we can to take care of our associates during these very difficult times. Through the Towne Park Foundation’s Employee Relief Fund, we are proud to have contributed $300,000 to support former and current associates experiencing hardship due to the crisis and help them bridge the gap.

At Towne Park we support and care for each other. We want to offer a special acknowledgment and thank you to our many employees who made personal contributions to the fund to support their colleagues in need.

Your much needed help and generosity during this extremely difficult time is an amazing gesture. I felt such a great relief when I opened the mail and saw the check. -- Towne Park Associate, Austin Texas

Jordan R. Swartz, Guest Service Captain

Marriott Grand Chateau Hotel Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, NV

Jordan has been with Towne Park as a Guest Service Captain at the Marriott Grand Chateau Hotel Las Vegas since 2016, and credits his mentors with inspiring his pursuit of a teaching degree from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

Jordan’s dream is to become an educator who inspires and instills a lifelong love of learning – much like his own – in students while also equipping them with the tools they need to be successful and to solve real world problems. Jordan is passionate about applying his passion for teaching to youth sports, and currently serves his local community as a Little League Baseball and Flag Football coach in addition to being a substitute teacher.

A senior member of the Honor Society, Jordan is always the student who will reach out to assist other students when they struggle, either with the technology or content itself. His attention to detail, discipline, and desire to always go the extra mile are traits that will carry him well into the future.

I want to say receiving this scholarship is a big blessing for both me and my family. I can say I can comfortably navigate my next semester and am grateful for Towne Park giving me so much!

Vincent Villegas, Valet Guest Service Captain

St. Joseph’s Hospital, Denver, CO

Vincent has been a valet Guest Service Captain at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Denver since 2021. He is highly respected among his Towne Health peers and his leadership has been invaluable to the team, especially as a champion for site safety. Additionally, he regularly steps in to help with translation for Spanish-speaking families.

A full-time sophomore at Metropolitan State University of Denver, Vincent is pursuing an Aerospace Aeronautical degree and is also in flight school. Additionally, he is an officer in the Air Force JROTC and the Army ROTC. Vincent has served as a member of the Glenwood Springs Firefighter Explorer Program and a local precollegiate program, designed to help first-generation students reach their goals of higher education.

Vincent’s goal is to become a professional pilot. His dream, however, is even bigger; he wants to become the role model in the aviation world that he didn’t have when he was younger. He hopes to bring more Latinos into the aviation field and to share his love for flying with them.

As someone who got this job to pay for college, I appreciate the fact that I was chosen to receive the scholarship. This award alleviates some of the financial pressure placed on me and I cannot be more grateful. Thank you!

Tyler D. Hain, Screener

Reading Hospital, Wyomissing, PA

Tyler is a junior at the Pennsylvania State University-Berks Campus majoring in IT & Computing, and the Towne Park Dream Scholars program will help set him on the path to achieving his dream of starting his own company potentially focused on helping the older generation navigate technology. Tyler has worked with Towne Health as a screener for Reading Hospital in Pennsylvania since 2020 and loves getting the chance to help make each patient’s arrival easier.

At a young age, he faced difficulties due to his mother’s illness and the family’s financial hardships. By virtue of these real-life experiences, Tyler exhibits a fortitude, strength and resilience that many people of the same age don’t yet have. He has forged his own path and set high standards for himself. This includes serving community members in need through his previous involvement with the Helping Harvest Food Bank, where Tyler provided assistance with cleaning, packaging and transportation. Tyler pushes himself academically, is committed to excellence and achieving his goals.
