Houston, Texas Airport Hotels Support Local Fire Stations for the Holidays

Houston Marriott North Feeds Firefighters for the Holidays

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2013) - In certain businesses, there are no days off, even for the holidays. As a hotel, the Houston Marriott North is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week, all year long. Come rain, shine, sleet or snow, the staff at this Houston, TX airport hotel must report for work, ready to assist guests with whatever they need. Similarly, firefighters keep a schedule that allows little time for sick or vacation days, only for them, showing up for work means risking their lives to keep the community safe. To honor these hard-working men and women, the Houston Marriott North plans to provide hot meals for the local firehouse.

The staff at these Houston, TX hotel suites will be preparing and delivering a hotel meal for the local firehouse crew on both Thanksgiving and Christmas days.

The team at this hotel near Houston International Airport will prepare and deliver the holiday lunches, which will serve the crew on duty, usually between eight and 12 members. Since the firehouse crew has limited time, meals are delivered quickly, and after a quick photo-op, the staff is on their way back to the hotel within 20 minutes. Many staff members will also bring their children to participate.

For Thanksgiving, the firehouse crew will dine on tossed salad with assorted dressings, a variety of lunch rolls, sliced oven-roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, giblet gravy, stuffing, green beans, yams, mashed potatoes and both pumpkin and pecan pies. On Christmas, the menu will include tossed salad with assorted dressings, a variety of lunch rolls, sliced roasted prime rib of beef, aus jus, horseradish sauce, fresh winter vegetables, Lyonnais potatoes and an assortment of holiday desserts.

Supporting the local firehouse is something the Houston Marriott North does with pride, recognizing the hard work, dedication and sacrifice that the men and women put forth every day serving the community. The hotel joins the Houston Airport Marriott and the brand's additional area hotels in supporting local fire stations.
