There are even more associates who spread love and cheer during the holidays. The Sheraton and Westin Kansas City at Crown Center hosted a party to celebrate their associates of the year, Ikhlas in Housekeeping at the Sheraton and Lester from Food and Beverage at the Westin, with a party for all associates, their families and 60 children from McLinney-Vento Homeless Shelter. Their fundraising efforts raised $1174 in gifts for these kids. In England, associates at the York Marriott Hotel wore their best Christmas sweaters to work and raised £80 for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. And proving that together we’re definitely better, the leadership team members from the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree, Delta Hotels Edmonton South Conference Centre, Delta Hotels Edmonton Centre Suites and the Westin Edmonton Hotel headed out to a local school to provide warm meals, treats and friendly smiles for 185 students who face daily challenges in where their next meal may come from. We love this spirit to serve!
