Brookline Hotel Works to Help Neighborhood Children in Need This Season

The Courtyard Boston Brookline Joins Forces With Cradles to Crayons During One Memorable Afternoon

BROOKLINE, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2014) - Underprivileged children in the Boston area will have a brighter holiday season this year, thanks to the Courtyard Boston Brookline. Staff members from the hotel recently volunteered their time to benefit Cradles to Crayons, a nonprofit organization serving families in both Boston and Philadelphia. And, in doing so, they helped improve the lives of their neighborhood kids.

On November 18th associates from this hotel nearby Fenway Park arrived at Cradles to Crayons to spend the afternoon organizing books for more than 100 local children.

"Dedicating more than two hours at Cradles to Crayons was undoubtedly a highlight of the season for our team," says General Manager Sharad Chand. "Giving back to our community is a top priority among our staff, and there's nothing more rewarding than helping children. Cradles to Crayons provided the perfect opportunity to help out a worthwhile cause."

Located among Chestnut Hill, MA hotels, the property recognizes the importance of corporate social responsibility on all its levels, from financial donations to hands-on volunteering. Its partnership with Cradles to Crayons is simply the most recent example of that commitment.

Cradles to Crayons works to help low-income or poverty-stricken families by providing kids ages 0 to 12 with essentials like clothing, shoes, books, baby supplies, school supplies, toys and more, all free of charge. With more than 305,000 underprivileged households in Massachusetts alone, the need is profound.

The property's dedication to community service is just one reason travelers prefer it among hotels near Longwood Medical Center. The custom-designed hotel also offers stylish, modern amenities like a state-of-the-art lobby, complimentary high-speed Internet access in the guest rooms and an indoor pool. Additionally, the hotel's location near attractions like Alden Castle, Boston College and Faneuil Hall make it convenient for those on vacation and those traveling for business.

From lending a helping hand to extending warm hospitality, the Courtyard Boston Brookline specializes in making its corner of the world a better, more comfortable place for everyone.
