BROOKLINE, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 13, 2013) - This holiday season, staff at the Courtyard Boston Brookline, a hotel near Longwood Medical Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, is donating their time and energy to help families in need.
For Thanksgiving, the BC hotel staff put together five Salvation Army brown bags that fed 22 hungry people. The needy families who received these meals enjoyed classic Thanksgiving dishes like turkey, stuffing, gravy, and pie.
