Hotel in Fullerton, CA Makes a Difference in Church's Relief Trip to Haiti

The Fullerton Marriott at California State University Donates Soap and More to a Worthy Cause

FULLERTON, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - When planning a mission to rebuild a school all but destroyed by Haiti's 2010 earthquake, soap may not be the first item on the packing list, but it turns out it's as instrumental as a table saw. That was just one of many lessons learned by the team from the Friends Community Church in Brea, California as they embarked on their ministry to Haiti this August. And thanks to the Fullerton Marriott at California State University, these missionaries had plenty of bath amenities to distribute when they arrived on the scene.

Few business hotels in Fullerton share the Spirit to Serve demonstrated by the Fullerton Marriott. When the local church expressed its need for help of every kind -- from rainbow-loom bracelets to luggage -- this property answered the call immediately. Its donation of soaps, shampoos and conditioners enabled the some 14 relief workers to support the teachers and children of the school they worked to rebuild.

In partnership with a local ministry in Haiti, Friends Community Church arrived in Haiti to overhaul a school vitally important to its community. Providing food and education to more than 600 children daily, as well as clean drinking water for many area residents, the school serves many purposes. Yet, its dilapidated condition prevented it from fully realizing its responsibilities. Ministry volunteers worked to pour concrete floors, wire the building for electricity, paint murals, refurbish the playground and more.

The Haitian school may be a long way from hotels near Brea, CA, but that just goes to show how far-reaching the Fullerton Marriott's commitment to its community is. In doing its part to create a better world, the property offers an even warmer welcome to its guests. Visitors enjoy a convenient location near Disneyland, Anaheim and Knott's Berry Farm along with enticing amenities like a heated outdoor pool and spacious hotel rooms in Fullerton, CA.

Whether travelers choose the Fullerton Marriott at California State University for its comfortable accommodations or stellar reputation among hotels near CSUF, they will be treated to the heart and soul of Southern California hospitality.
