Oaks Hotels officially a Habit for Humanity

Oaks Hotel Castlereagh

If you’re planning a trip to Australia or New Zealand and are looking for a hotel chain that is dedicated to giving back to the community, then Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites might just be the perfect choice for you. As part of their Oaks Giving Tree program, this hotel chain has partnered with Mount Franklin and Habitat for Humanity to help build homes for disadvantaged families in Australia and New Zealand.


Guests staying at any Oaks property can now contribute to this worthy cause by purchasing Mount Franklin water during their stay. For every bottle sold, one dollar is donated to Habitat for Humanity Australia and Habitat for Humanity New Zealand. These funds will go towards building safe and secure homes for vulnerable people in our communities, including those impacted by natural disasters, people with disabilities and their carers, indigenous Australians and those fleeing family violence.

Bottled water

Each bottle of Mount Franklin water features a branded neck tag, so you can easily identify them at the hotel. This initiative is called Hydrate for Humanity, and it’s a fantastic way to stay hydrated while helping those in need.

According to Craig Hooley, Chief Operating Officer for Minor Hotels Australia and New Zealand, “Our Hydrate for Humanity activity with Mount Franklin and Habitat for Humanity further elevates our work as part of the Oaks Giving Tree Program, in providing support to low-income families facing adverse circumstances.”

In addition to this fantastic initiative, Oaks Hotels is also involved with Habitat for Humanity on another level. The hotel chain offers its employees the opportunity to volunteer with renovations, landscaping, gardening, and minor repairs on Habitat for Humanity building sites. This hands-on involvement allows Oaks Hotels employees to make a tangible difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

So, next time you’re staying at an Oaks property, be sure to grab a bottle of Mount Franklin water and hydrate for humanity. You’ll not only be doing your body a favoru, but you’ll also be helping to build a better future for vulnerable families in Australia and New Zealand.
