The Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) held their annual convention recently at the George R. Brown Convention Center. During the convention, the attendees collected personal hygiene products, to be donated to The Star of Hope, to give back to the Houston community. HSMAI donated a total of 550 individual hygiene kits and personally delivered them to the shelter. “Being sustainable is finding ways to give back to the community,” said Wanda Adams, Houston First Sustainability Manager.
