Associates in Action During COVID-19

Our associates around the world continued to support their local communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis, from hosting drives to preparing meals and honoring first responders. Here are a few highlights:

Showing a Spirit to Serve at Marriott’s Crystal Shores

During this difficult time, the team at Marriott’s Crystal Shores hosted a Diaper Drive for Galisano’s Children’s Hospital. The associates collaborated to donate children’s diapers to help those in the hospital for treatment, which showcased the team’s passion for the Children’s Miracle Network.

Giving Back to First Responders at Sheraton Vistana Resort

To honor the contributions of first responders, the Sheraton Vistana Resort team sponsored dinner, drinks and cookies for all the personnel of Fire Station 35 and Fire Station 36 in Orlando, FL. The food was delivered individually wrapped by our partners from Firehouse Subs.

Delivering Meals to Ronald McDonald House from Sheraton Vistana Resort

Sheraton Vistana Resort delivered Share-A-Meal packages to the Ronald McDonald House, a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at local hospitals. The meals were prepared by the Tacky Tiki Grill staff, and volunteer Omari Zachary from housekeeping delivered the food, drinks and cookies to families. This was the last delivery Ronald McDonald House received before the program was put on hold due to COVID-19. In Orlando, more than 1,400 families are served each year.

Medicine Donation from The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort

Associates at The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort donated medicines to Caritas Quintana Roo Medicine bank to help the community.
