Ayres Hotels and our deep care for genuine hospitality align well with our support for the philanthropic efforts of local non-profit, Northeast of the Well. Northeast of the Well strives to gather individuals with a call to compassion and serve to action in local communities, including Anaheim, Long Beach, Orange, Tustin, Newport, and Costa Mesa.
The name, Northeast of the Well, stems from the scripture. In John, chapter 4, a woman has a transformative encounter with Christ, as she came to the draw water at the well during mid-day. “Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, ‘Come, see about a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?’” [John 4:28-29]. The woman originally went to a well with the intention of avoiding human contact. She was living a life she was ashamed of, marked by sin and failure. However, her encounter with this man changed the direction of her life and called her to compassion. The Northeast of the Well calls to similar stories of enlightenment, as its members continue to give back to the local community.
Northeast of the Well pursues local outreach on a daily basis. Women are invited to join them in attending to places in desperate need, particularly focusing on those in recovery and restoration.
