Sabre Holdings’ Executives Kick Off Global Volunteer Week at CCA
Wednesday 7, April 2010
Connecting people with the world’s greatest travel possibilities is the everyday business of Sabre Holdings, and connecting with communities is one if its priorities. The strong partnership Sabre has with the community extends far beyond Dallas and Fort Worth, reaching out to more than 39 countries around the world where Sabre has offices or home-based employees including Poland, UK, India, Argentina and Australia.
On April 6th, Sabre Holdings’ CEO, Sam Gilliland will join 100 members from Sabre’s executive management team in exchanging their business attire for T-shirts, blue jeans and tool belts to kick-off a week of global volunteerism at Christian Community Action (CCA) in Lewisville, Texas.
CCA is an organization that has been meeting the needs of the poor in North Texas for more than three decades. CCA serves 12,000 individuals annually, who are in crisis by providing food, housing, medical care and vocational training along with vital personal support and most of all giving hope to the 12,000 individuals CCA serves annually.
“Giving back is part of who we are at Sabre – as one family and as an individual – we are leaving our mark across the globe,” said Chris Serafin, Senior Vice President for Sabre’s Product and Solutions division, and 2010 Global Give Together Campaign Chair. “Our Volunteer Week is part of our Better Travel, Better World mission at Sabre. We believe that travel allows people to transform the world through human discovery and understanding, by providing meaningful opportunities for lives and cultures to intersect. For me personally, it is very rewarding to see the clear difference we make - demonstrating how just a few hours of our time can positively impact and sustain the lives of those in need for the better, and long after we have left.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
