Marriott Lodging in Macon, GA Offers Charitable Contribution to Children

Marriott Macon City Center Hosts Toy Drive to Benefit The Children's Hospital at The Medical Center of Central Georgia

MACON, GA--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - In an effort to support The Children's Hospital at The Medical Center of Central Georgia, the sales team from The Macon Marriott City Center, amongst hotels in Warner Robins, GA, recently collected toys to distribute to young patients. The sales team identified the Children's Hospital as the focal point of their community involvement. The Children's Hospital, a service of The Medical Center of Central Georgia, is a not-for-profit health care organization committed to enhancing the lives of children through excellence in patient care. The hospital specializes in neonatal care, surgical trauma, cardiac care and surgery, research and education.

For almost 20 years, The Children's Hospital at The Medical Center of Central Georgia has been the key source of healthcare for children in Central Georgia. The Children's Hospital cares for all age groups from infants to 18 year old, despite the consequences of some families' inability to pay. Because it never turns patients away, The Children's Hospital relies on donations to assist in the operations of this pediatric hospital.

"When we were discussing what we could do to help the community, we immediately thought of The Children's Hospital," notes Jodie Aldridge, Event Manager of the Marriott Macon City Center. "There is nothing like the smile of a child and knowing that we could bring those smiles to many children who may be suffering from an illness."

A staple amongst hotels near Mercer University in Macon, GA, The Macon Marriott City Center strives for community involvement. When the sales team finalized a decision for a charity event, a Toy Drive for the Children's Hospital was a unanimous choice. The hotel plans to host a Zumba fundraiser as its next event in which the entire community is invited to participate. A portion of the proceeds raised will go directly to The Children's Hospital.
