Marriott Junior Business Council (JBC) represented by eight Marriott International Properties recently teamed up with Jaidah Automotive, the official dealer of Chevrolet in Qatar, for a charity event that will benefit a local labour camp.
The eight Marriott International Properties include W Doha Hotel and Residences, The St. Regis Doha, The Westin Doha Hotel and Spa, Sheraton Grand Doha Resort and Convention Hotel, Sharq Village and Spa, Doha Marriott Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Doha, and Marriott Marquis City Centre Doha Hotel.
Over forty Marriott volunteers joined hands to sort through donations. More than 150 boxes of clothes, beddings, and other basic necessities were collected within a month of planning and preparation. The collected donations were distributed at a local labour camp, to women and children in need. Chevrolet Qatar provided the transportation for the volunteers, from Doha Marriott Hotel to the Industrial Area, where the labour camp was located.
Tania Rodrigues, President of Qatar Marriott Junior Business Council, said that it was an eye-opening experience for her.
Every action, no matter how small, has an effect to those around you. Everyone has the ability to help in some way or another.’
