In an effort to give back to those in need this holiday season, WCG Hotels has agreed to partner with the Toys for Tots for the sixth year in a row, offering an even greater variety of ways to support the charity this year. Through January 3rd, 2015 WCG Hotels will offer a Toys for Tots room rate, which donates $10 to Toys for Tots from a guest’s stay at any WCG hotel.
In addition to their special room rate, the entire WCG Hotel portfolio will offer guests numerous ways to support Toys for Tots, including a Give & Go Toy Drive where guests and community members can drop off a toy at the front of the hotel and enjoy complimentary coffee and hot chocolate, along with a restaurant promotion “Tots for Tots” appetizer where hotels will offer a special tater tots appetizer with dipping sauces, and donate proceeds to the charity. Toy collection boxes will also be available at each hotel, and guests can either drop off their own toy, choose to buy a toy from the hotel for $10, or contribute to the hotel’s Spare Change Drive. WCG Hotels will also be featuring different activities on their Facebook page to get its guests and the community excited about supporting Toys for Tots, including a “Guess the Tots” promotion and a “Best Tots Box” competition among hotels, and will also give Facebook fans an opportunity to win an overnight stay.
“We are extremely proud to partner with Toys for Tots for the sixth year in a row,” says Paul Francisco, Chief Operating Officer at WCG Hotels. “Giving back to our communities around the holidays helps ease the stress endured by children who are less fortunate and is something our WCG Team looks forward to. This year we will donate $10 to the charity for each guests’ stay when they book our hotel stay “WCG Hotels’ Toys for Tots offer. Each year I am overwhelmed by the engagement of our incredible hotel and corporate associates as well as the enthusiasm and charitable spirit displayed by our guests as we head into the holiday season!”
“We are very happy to welcome back WCG Hotels as a partner of the Marine Toys for Tots campaign for the 6th year in a row,” said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, VP of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, “With WCG Hotels’ help, we continue to make a difference in fulfilling the holiday dreams of even more less fortunate children than we otherwise would be able to do.”
Toys for Tots is a non-profit public charity dedicated to delivering new toys to underprivileged children to help make their holiday brighter. Since 1947, the United States Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots charity has united members of communities nationwide for the common cause in helping children and bettering their neighborhoods. WCG Hotels is proud to continue to their support of Toys for Tots through a variety of giving back initiatives for the 6th year in a row.
