Hotel Sponsors Hospital Charity Blanket Drive in Lexington Park, MD

TownePlace Suites Lexington Park Patuxent River Naval Air Station Collecting Blankets for Kids

LEXINGTON PARK, MD--(Marketwired - Dec 19, 2013) - Huddling under a warm blanket in front of a crackling fireplace with hot cocoa in hand is a winter dream come true, but for many children, the holidays are spent in a hospital room with no gifts in sight. This holiday season, the TownePlace Suites Lexington Park Patuxent River Naval Air Station is teaming up with guests and the local community to collect brand-new blankets for kids at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital.

This extended-stay hotel in Lexington Park will be collecting new blankets until December 23rd, after which they will be donated to children at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital on Christmas Eve.

"The holidays are a special time to celebrate with friends and family," explains General Manager Jennifer Misner. "For many children at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital, however, the holidays don't bring the same joy. By collecting new blankets for donation, we are hoping to bring a smile to the faces of these children."

Guests of this hotel in Lexington Park, MD who want to participate in the blanket drive can head to the San Souci Shopping Center nearby, where the hotel has already purchased No-Sew Fleece Blankets from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores®. Visitors can also explore shopping, dining and entertainment at the area's newest shopping center, located across the street from the hotel.

To participate in the charity blanket drive at this Lexington Park hotel, please contact Jennifer Misner at jennifer.misner@marriott.com or by calling 301-863-1111.
