Marriott Manila paints the town with joy and hope during the Brigada Eskwela 2017 at Philippine School for the Deaf. Known for their company’s core value called, “Spirit To Serve”, the hotel exchanged their workloads for brushes and brooms to take care of the community. The charity work is part the global Marriott Associate Appreciation Week to celebrate the 90th anniversary of its founding.
At least 30 associates volunteered in this meaningful maintenance work. Picking up the buckets from the successful rehabilitation work last year, wherein they painted elementary building hallways, pavement gutters and gate fences; they focused on refurbishing the Kindergarten learning facilities. They repainted the 2-storey building that looked good as new now with kid-friendly illustrations around the hallways. From grimy and old, it turned to a brighter, more fun and inspiring learning space. Marriott Hotel Manila certainly knows how to make good brilliant.
Joining other Brigada volunteers, General Manager Bruce Winton said “We are happy to support schools prepare for the opening of classes”. The hotel has participated in the Brigada Eskwela since it opened in 2009. Aside from the repairs, Marriott Manila also pledged to fund the reconstruction of their dormitories to a possible mock-up hotel that will serve as training facilities for students.
