Nine Years of Support: WCG Collects Toys for Tots


SANTA MONICA, CALIF.—In an effort to give back to those in need, WCG Hotels announced their partnership with Toys for Tots for the ninth year in a row. WCG Hotels is offering guests and those in the community a variety of ways to give back this holiday season. Through January 2, 2018 WCG Hotels will offer a Toys for Tots room rate, which donates $10 to Toys for Tots from a guest’s stay at any WCG hotel.

In addition to their special room rate, the WCG Hotel portfolio will offer guests numerous ways to support Toys for Tots. Guests and community members can drop off a toy at the front desk at each hotel making giving back to those in need easier than ever. Toy collection boxes are available at each hotel, and guests can either drop off a new toy, choose to buy a toy from the hotel for $10, or contribute to the hotel’s Spare Change Drive.

“We are excited to partner with Toys for Tots now for the ninth year,” stated Paul Francisco, COO at WCG Hotels. “Our special offer along with the toy drop off stations in every hotel will provide the hotel staff, guests, and surrounding neighbors a great opportunity to contribute to a charity that makes a tangible difference in the community during a time of year when financial hardships are felt most by children during the holiday season.”

Goal is to Help the Less Fortunate

“WCG Hotels is helping Toys for Tots deliver the magic of Christmas to less fortunate children who otherwise might have been forgotten,” said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

Toys for Tots, a nonprofit public charity founded in 1947 by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, is dedicated to delivering new toys to less fortunate children in the community during the holiday season. For generations, Toys for Tots has united members of communities nationwide for the common cause of helping their children and bettering their neighborhoods.

The WCG Hotels portfolio plays a prominent role in the communities of Asheville, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and seven cities in California, where its hotels are located. Many hotels are Embassy Suites properties, offering two-room suites and include made-to-order breakfast and complimentary beverages and snacks in the evening. WCG Hotels invites guests from all over to give back to a great cause this holiday season through the WCG Hotels Toys for Tots offer, in addition to supporting Toys for Tots through the other initiatives.
