The team from the Fairfield Inn & Suites Delray Beach have graciously donated their time, their energy, and their library space to benefit the Milagro Center. The Milagro Center is a Delray Beach based nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure the social and academic success of children through cultural arts, living values, mentoring and academic support.


Milagro Center was founded in 1997 by several local visionary leaders motivated by the desire for community service centered on providing arts experiences to the economically-challenged neighborhood children.  Milagro, which means “miracle” in Spanish, motivates children and teens to “reach for the stars” while being confronted by the many adverse influences they face in the community. Milagro Center’s uniquely integrated programs focus on empowering these at-risk youth and their families to succeed, both in school and in life, having a resounding positive influence on the Delray Beach community.


The team from the Fairfield Inn & Suites spent the day helping with the Milagro Center’s annual end of summer party. The party was held for 50 elementary school children who enjoyed playing field games with hotel staff such as water balloon tosses, egg races and potato sack races.


The Fairfield Inn & Suites has also donated wall space for a Milagros Center kid’s art gallery. The art is currently for sale, with all proceeds going to benefit the Milagro Center. One major component of the center’s programming is art based, and the children are thrilled to have their original pieces featured in the hotel.

Shaner Hotels has a rich and long-standing tradition of giving back to the communities in which we do business. Thank you to the team at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Delray Beach for helping to continue this tradition.
