ISELIN, NJ--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - The Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel has been named the 2011 Corporate Citizen of the Year by the Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce. The Woodbridge hotel was selected for the Chamber's highest honor based on exemplary leadership and investment in the local economy. In addition, the hotel located near Rahway, NJ, received the award due to its contributions and outstanding service to the Chamber and community at large.

Receiving the Corporate Citizen of the Year award was an incredible honor for the entire hotel staff. Robert Weeks, General Manager, accepted the award at the Chamber's 47th Annual Chairman's Awards Dinner on behalf of the hotel near Kenilworth, NJ. The dinner was attended by several hundred members of the Woodbridge business community on October 19, 2011.

The Renaissance is among top hotels near Rutgers University and has been involved in numerous projects that have helped the local community, as well as people globally. The hotel supports numerous charities and hosts many meetings and gatherings. During a recent leadership conference, the hotel proudly coordinated five community projects, which included Hands of Hope for the Community, Maple Tree Manor, the New Jersey Association for Correction, the New Jersey Institute for Disabilities, and Camp Kiddie Keep Well. The projects ranged from sorting clothes to painting and renovating, to name a few.

The hotel has also participated in a program run by Clean the World, a not-for-profit organization aimed at reducing hygiene-related deaths. The program will benefit local and international communities and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. To assist, the Renaissance hotel will provide more than one million bars of recycled soap and 500,000 bottles of recycled shampoo, gels, and lotions in an effort to help fight the spread of preventable diseases.
