|Every day around the world, guests call Marriott their "home away from home." That's why it's natural for us to help create places of refuge for those in need and feed the hungry, including during times of disaster.
Through Habitat for Humanity® International, our employees at managed and franchised hotels, along with our customers, have built more than 300 homes in 15 countries, including Costa Rica, Indonesia, Mexico, Thailand and the United States. While the company and its partners contribute about $200,000 annually to the cause, our employees roll up their sleeves, work as teams and create safe and affordable homes for others. In fact, our Fairfield Inn brand has made Habitat its signature community activity.
Whether providing safe-to-donate food or employee volunteers, our hotels worldwide work with shelters and food banks in their communities, most of which in the United States are affiliates of America's Second Harvest the Nation's Food Bank Network. Since 1992, Marriott International has contributed more than $500,000 to food banks.
Unfortunately, there are times when natural disasters and other crises affect the communities where we work and live. We contribute to the Disaster Relief Fund of both the American Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and provide opportunities for our Marriott Rewards members to contribute as well.
