Courtyard by Marriott Brookline Gives Back to Homeless Shelter

Hotel Staff to Volunteer at the Pine Street Inn in August

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2012) -  The hotel business isn't just comfortable rooms and a place to stay. A bigger role is becoming a part of the community you serve, through any means at your disposal. With that in mind, the management and staff of Boston's Brookline Courtyard are proud to announce their upcoming work with the Pine Street Inn, a local homeless shelter.

Founded in 1969 and dedicated to ending homelessness in Boston, the Pine Street Inn provides a comprehensive range of services, including permanent supportive housing, job training and placement, emergency shelter and street outreach to more than 1,600 homeless men and women each day. For more information and upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, visit http://www.pinestreetinn.org.

On August 14, 2012, Courtyard Brookline staff will be volunteering with a team of eight, preparing, cooking for, and serving food to over 200 homeless people. The team will work from 8:30am - 12:30pm at the Pine Street Inn. The property will also be donating over 50 cases of cereal to the organization.
