When there's no time on the agenda for a separate activity that meets corporate social responsibility goals, merge the charitable component with a planned event. For example, Affinia Manhattan offers build-your-own-banana-split meeting breaks that benefit Operation Smile, an organization that provides life-saving surgeries to children born with facial deformities. For every meeting break booked, the hotel will donate 15 percent of the proceeds to reach their goal of supporting 500 surgeries.
