Corporate Social Responsibility
A growing trend in meetings and conventions is the desire travelers have to “give back” to their host city. Our Corporate Social Responsibility program enables your organization to get involved with volunteer activities that benefit Savannah’s local community and environment. Please contact us for more information about how your group can volunteer with these organizations in Savannah.
