I want [Embassy Suites Seattle-Bellevue] to know how much I appreciated your generous support. You helped ‘pay Christmas Friend forward’ to a group of guys far away from home.
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
The Embassy Suites Seattle-Bellevue hotel is proud to partner with a local organization to donate holiday gifts to benefit overseas soldiers in Afghanistan. Various items were collected to create 50 boxes of Christmas presents for the Blackwatch 4th Platoon, presented in the theme of the ‘12 days of Christmas’.
Among the items sent to the soldiers as part of ‘Operation 12 Days of Christmas’ included personal toiletries (day 1), 30 tubes of Pringles (day 5), magazines (day 9) and 30 books (day 10). In addition, notes were sent to the Troops thanks to the help of the Island Park Elementary students. The gifts are delivered in time to bring holiday cheer to the troops in Afghanistan.
“I want [Embassy Suites Seattle-Bellevue] to know how much I appreciated your generous support. You helped ‘pay Christmas Friend forward’ to a group of guys far away from home,” says coordinator Renee Christenson.
“The Embassy Suites Bellevue understands the great need soldiers have, especially during the holidays, while away from friends and family. Our hotel has always been a big supporter of the community and is always looking for ways to be involved,” says Riccardo Marossa, Director of Sales at the Embassy Suites Seattle-Bellevue.
Along with the “Operation 12 Days of Christmas,” the Embassy Suites Seattle-Bellevue has hosted other various drives throughout the holidays to benefit the community, including their annual Toys for Tots drive. Looking forward, the hotel hopes to bring holiday cheer to the soldiers again next year.
