SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY: AT&T LOOKING FOR 20,000 OLYMPIC ROOMS
Atlanta HOST and Olympic sponsor AT&T are teaming up to for
the "AT&T True Hospitality '96" program to provide bed-and-
breakfast for families of up to 10,500 athletes. Atlanta HOST is
an organization of 28 churches searching for volunteers to donate
housing, breakfast, and limited transportation during the Games.
AT&T Program Manager Bill Blair said the company is hoping a
large number of its Atlanta-based employees, as well as employees
of other Atlanta sponsors, will offer lodging. AT&T will also
create a temporary hospitality center at its headquarters and try
to arrange discount airfares and event tickets for athlete's
families (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/21).
