The holidays are traditionally a season where generosity fills the hearts of many.  This generosity tends to develop a desire to give back to your community and those who are less fortunate.  All across the Shaner portfolio you can see examples of this generosity this holiday season.  Here are two more properties that are continuing to make adifference in their community with generosity this holiday season.


The Courtyard in St Augustine, Florida has teamed up with the Marine Corps league to be a drop off location for Toys for Tots this holiday season.  Collections have been more than they ever could have imagined.  Associates, guests and even local residents have stopped by to drop donations in the box.  One extremely generous donation consisted of 250 toys to be distributed within the community.


In Chattanooga, Tennessee, associates at the Marriott hotel have been participating in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.  Through this program, necessities and Christmas gifts are provided for disadvantaged children up to 12 years of age and senior citizens age 60 or older.  The Marriott Chattanooga sponsored a family of five children named Miriam, Sara, Rudy, Estrella and Susana.  More than 25 toys were donated by associates so those children can have gifts to wake up to Christmas morning.
