In an effort to provide associates with financial relief during times of crisis, The Al J. Schneider Company created the AJS Stands Together Relief Fund for associates at The Galt House Hotel, Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport, and Embassy Suites by Hilton Louisville, who have experienced an unforeseen catastrophic or emergency situation. The fund is powered by donations, and The Al J. Schneider will match $.50 for every $1 donated.

Associates may apply for relief up to $500 due to unemployment, illness, loss of a family member, being the victim of a serious crime, and more. AJS Hotels' associates, managers, shareholders and members of the public may donate via cash or check or can enroll in one-time or recurring payroll deductions.

The AJS Stands Together Relief Fund is just one of the ways the company is helping associates in their time of need. In addition to the relief fund, AJS Hotels has created a complimentary food pantry, stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables, soups, milk, household goods and essential items, to all associates. The company is also paying health insurance for all its furloughed associates, and has provided for all associates, free of charge, a service called Teledoc, a web-based service which will connect them with a certified physician 24 hours a day.

* Donations are not tax deductible at this time.

Checks can be made out to AJS Relief Fund and mailed to AJS HOTELS at 401 WEST MAIN STREET, SUITE 400 LOUISVILLE, KY 40202
