Munich Marriott Hotel General Manager Joins Others to Help Families in Need

MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- Sending money is one way to help, but once a check is put in the mail, it's hard to know exactly where it goes and how it helps. Marriott's South Germany and Switzerland Business Council wanted to offer more than just money, so it brought together engineers and general managers from Zurich, Vienna and Munich hotels to take their skills on the road, where their help could be felt first-hand.

From 19 to 21 July, five general managers, including that of this international Munich hotel, hit the road to Alba Iulia in Transylvania, Romania, where they worked with Stern der Hoffnung children's home. Three engineers arrived a week prior, focusing on the kitchen and painting, followed by the general managers, who arrived in vans loaded with donations including bed linens, stuffed animals, pillows, TVs, toys and more. The donations, made in kind by companies such as Sysco Guest Supply, associates and hotel head offices, can be sold (if not needed) at a small shop to benefit the children's home.

Two vans from Germany were donated to the cause and joined by another from Vienna. The teams departed on the 19th, stopping overnight at the Budapest Marriott before an early morning departure to Alba Iulia, where they unloaded donations and shared a meal with the kids.

The South Germany & Switzerland Business Council has been running this charitable program for the past 5 years, working with a dynamic team of three to five engineers who support the project with their mechanical skills.

This North Munich hotel was joined by other city and regional properties, all of which donated between 700EUR and 1,200EUR each, including Courtyard Munich City Center, Courtyard Munich City East, Residence Inn Munich City East, Munich Airport Marriott Hotel, Zurich Marriott Hotel, Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel, Renaissance Zurich Hotel, Vienna Marriott Hotel, Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel, Renaissance Vienna Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Vienna, Courtyard Vienna Messe and Courtyard Vienna Schoenbrunn.
