Clean the World

Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel - Make a Green Choice The Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel takes pride in being the first Hotel in Philadelphia to partner with the Clean the World organization, a non-profit that distributes recycled soap products, along with appropriate educational materials, to impoverished countries worldwide, and to domestic homeless shelters.

Impoverished people around the world die every day from acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease because they have no soap. The death toll is staggering. Each year more than five million lives are lost to these diseases with the majority of deaths being among children less than five years old. Studies have shown that simple hand washing substantially reduces the spread of these diseases.

The Sheraton University City, along with Hotel partners such as the Disney Resort properties and Harrah's Resorts, have committed to simple soap recycling efforts to make a difference, reducing already overflowing landfills and saving lives.  You can read more about this wonderful organization at

Philadelphia 18th Police District

Each year, in partnership with the 18th Police District, the hotel collects school supplies for children in the local West Philadelphia Community; holds a food drive for families in the local elementary school during the Thanksgiving Holiday; and donates food and volunteers for the Police District’s Annual Christmas Party with Santa for local school children.
