Everyone knows how our family loved Marriott Manila. My fondness over the brand grows even more when I learned about their Brigada Eswela Activity.

Last week, Marriott Manila paints the town with joy and hope during the Brigada Eskwela 2017 at Philippine School for the Deaf. You would know if a brand and or a company is doing well if the Corporate Social Responsibility is included in its core values. 

Associates poured out their creativity and dedication on every stroke and illustration for a more inspired learning place  
Known for their company’s core value called, “Spirit To Serve”, the hotel exchanged their workloads for brushes and brooms to take care of the community.

The charity work is part the global Marriott Associate Appreciation Week to celebrate the 90th anniversary of its founding.

At least 30 associates volunteered in this meaningful maintenance work. Picking up the buckets from the successful rehabilitation work last year, wherein they painted elementary building hallways, pavement gutters and gate fences; they focused on refurbishing the Kindergarten learning facilities.

They repainted the 2-storey building that looked good as new now with kid-friendly illustrations around the hallways. From grimy and old, it turned to a brighter, more fun and inspiring learning space. Marriott Hotel Manila certainly knows how to make good brilliant.
