TownePlace Suites Charlotte Arrowood Invites Guests to Take Part in Operation Christmas Child

Extended-Stay Hotel Offers Special Rate for Operation Christmas Child Volunteers, November and December, 2014

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - It's that time of year to spread good news and great joy as TownePlace Suites Charlotte Arrowood invites guests to stay at the iconic extended-stay hotel in Charlotte, NC for this year's Operation Christmas Child. The time-honored event is the world's largest Christmas project of its kind and provides kids in need with gift-filled shoeboxes from thousands of volunteers, this November and December, 2014.

During National Collection Week November 17 - 24, 2014 individuals, families and groups are invited to fill empty shoeboxes with toys, school supplies, words of encouragement, or health-related items for donation. Samaritan's Purse will collect the shoeboxes, preparing them for overseas shipment, with plans to deliver them to children across the world on six continents.

Each gift-filled shoebox is a tangible way of spreading love, faith and good will to needy children around the world. Since 1993, the event has collected and delivered more than 100 million shoeboxes to children in over 100 countries. Its efforts have benefitted countless children in need thanks to the help of more than 500,000 volunteers worldwide, including 100,000 volunteers in the US alone.

Located within walking distance of the Operation Christmas Child Distribution Center, TownePlace Suites Charlotte Arrowood is offering a special rate for event volunteers this season, as well as inviting guests to wake up to a complimentary Extended Continental Breakfast every morning throughout their stay. The all-suite hotel offers Studio Suites and Two-Bedroom Suites with fully-equipped kitchens for crafting quality meals, plus free wired and wireless Internet access, a 24-hour market, business center and laundry facilities onsite.

Volunteers can simply request the Operation Christmas Child Rate to take advantage of the hotel's exclusive limited-time special offer. Groups booking five or more suites can contact Danielle Coufal, Director of Sales at 704-227-2000 for more information and to start planning their stay at the long-term stay hotel in Charlotte this upcoming season.
