Harrisburg Hotel Shares a Gift From the Heart This Winter

TownePlace Suites Harrisburg's Annual Blanket Making Program Gives the Gift of Warmth to Children in Need

HARRISBURG, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2014) - Just as a chill begins to set in the air, one Harrisburg, PA hotel begins its campaign to ensure every local child in need spends the winter season safe and warm. Beginning on November 15th, TownePlace Suites Harrisburg Hershey launched their 5th annual blanket-making program.

In a partnership with their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital -- Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital, TownePlace Suites' community outreach is unmatched by other Hershey, PA hotels. Together, TownePlace Suites and Penn State Hershey have captured the true spirit of the holiday season with their campaign of giving. By creating handmade blankets for patients of the hospital, they bring a little joy of the holiday season into the lives of these brave children who deserve the best.

As part of TownePlace Suites' "Real Giving" initiative, dedicated to community outreach through involvement with local area Children's Miracle Network hospitals across the country, TownePlace Suites challenges guests, owners, franchisees, other hotels near Hershey, and anyone looking for a way to make a difference this holiday season to donate whatever they can -- materials, money, or time to this worthy cause that warms the hearts of children, not just in Harrisburg and Hershey, but nationwide.

TownePlace Suites across the U.S. and Canada have set a goal of hand-crafting 100,000 blankets for child patients this winter. Over the course of the next three weeks, local communities will come together for organized blanket-making events, and heartwarming deliveries. TownePlace Suites Harrisburg Hershey is resolved to rally their community to help their hotel near Hershey, PA to do more than its part this holiday season.
