Marriott International has announced a series of initiatives to gather donations and offer accommodation for volunteers amidst the ongoing bushfire crisis.
For the next 60 days, all Marriott International hotels in Australia will be donating room nights for volunteers from fire services and departments across the country.
Each hotel will also be providing options for guests to donate cash or Marriott Bonvoy points (that will be transferred to cash) upon check out. Donations will go to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery fund.
“Our thoughts are with all those that have been impacted during this unprecedented bushfire season, from the communities affected to the brave volunteers who have worked tirelessly to protect them,” said Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
“It has been a difficult and emotional time, and Marriott International, its associates and hotels are here to support.”
