Celebrating its 17th year, the CFHLA Adopt-A-School program began with the mission to identify, develop and promote positive community partnerships between every public school in Central Florida and CFHLA member lodging establishments and companies. To date, for the 2018-2019 school year, 104 partnerships have been finalized in cooperation with the school districts in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. The goal for the 2018-2019 program is to establish 110 partnerships.
This program is another example of the hospitality industry Giving Back to Central Florida!
