Amanda Junk writes, "One way it has fulfilled that goal is by giving back to local community organizations." The Greencastle newspaper reports, "When it purchased new linens for all 54 of its guest rooms, the Inn staff members, along with mascot Tiger, a 4-month miniature golden doodle, donated the old ones to the Humane Societies of Putnam and Clay counties on July 30. The Inn also gave some of its leftover dry goods to the Away Home shelter in Greencastle." (at left: Tiger keeps watch over the donated linens)

Formerly known as the Walden InnWalden Inn Lobby2010.jpg, the hotel, restaurant and conference facility, which has been a fixture on the DePauw University campus since 1986, became known as The Inn at DePauw on July 1, when Dora Hotel Company LLC took over management of the property.

"We're just trying to be a place of interaction for the university and community because the location is so great for both groups of people," Ashley Dora, the Inn's marketing manager, tells the paper.
