Marriott Junior Business Council represented by 8 Marriott International Properties—W Doha Hotel & Residences, The St. Regis Doha, The Westin Doha Hotel & Spa, Sheraton Grand Doha Resort & Convention Hotel, Sharq Village & Spa, Doha Marriott Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Doha, and Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel—came together in partnership with Jaidah Automotive, the official dealer for Chevrolet in Qatar for a charity event on Friday, 20th July 2018.

Over forty Marriott volunteers joined hands to sort through donations. More than 150 boxes of clothes, bedding, and other basic necessities were collected in one month of planning and preparation. These were then distributed to a local labour camp and to women and children in need. Chevrolet Qatar, a brand which is also active in charity work, provided the transportation of the volunteers, with their rugged Chevrolet Silverado and Tahoe models, from the Doha Marriott Hotel to the Industrial Area, where the labour camp was located.

Tania Rodrigues, President of Qatar Marriott Junior Business Council, shared that it was an eye-opening experience for her. “Every action, no matter how small, has an effect to those around you. Everyone has the ability to help in some way or another,” Rodrigues said.
