What is resiliency?
The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties, toughness. The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
In early 2020, the world changed drastically, seemingly overnight.
Within the span of a few short weeks, the hospitality industry came to a complete standstill. The Coronavirus Pandemic & Economic Collapse is unlike anything any of us has ever seen.
What does resiliency look like at Pearlstone? We have been navigating this challenge holding fast to our values:
We don’t know when things will go back to “normal” or if they will ever really be the same. May we—individually and collectively—take each day one at a time, and continue to bring love to each other and to the world—and may the world meet us halfway by moving towards a resolution to this crisis speedily. There will be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Our team is more dedicated than ever to serving our constituents and our community. Through innovation, adaptivity and resilience, we continue to seek ways to make an impact with every encounter.
Emergency Food Response
As soon as we were unable to host groups on site, we pivoted almost immediately to directing our food service resources towards those who are food insecure. We have already provided thousands of meals to members of our community and we are currently on track to provide more than 100,000 meals before the end of 2020.
Getaways at Pearlstone
Take an unforgettable family vacation without having to travel far away! Hospitality and Loving Warmth is at the core of our DNA. While we may not be able to host the types and sizes of groups events that we typically do, we have dedicated lodging with full kitchens to allow for social distancing as well as amenities and daily activities to keep the whole family (or just the kids) busy!
