MARLBOROUGH – It’s a wrap!
The Fairfield Inn and Suites in Marlborough’s APEX Center recently hosted a wrapping party for the local non-profit, Sweats for Vets.
The staff gathered to wrap and label by size seventy sweatshirts that will be given to homeless veterans across New England. Last year over 2,100 sweatshirts were distributed over 10 states to veterans’ homeless shelters.
Mark Vital, founder and president of Sweats for Vets, often comments, “A regular sweatshirt provides warmth, a Boston team sweatshirt provides pride and pride leads to hope.”
As part of the True North Hotel Group, the Fairfield employees are encouraged to participate in community events as part of the Group’s Give Back philosophy.
Cheryl Prentiss, the General Manager of the Fairfield Inn, tries to provide as many opportunities as she can to instill a sense of community pride in her staff. Sweats for Vets and Kits for Kids are two local non-profits that the Fairfield Inn regularly supports.
To help our homeless veterans, donations of Boston team sweatshirts are always appreciated and can be dropped off at several local establishments, including Lost Show Roasting and Brewing, Tacklebox Brewing, and the Advanced Math and Science Academy, all in Marlborough, as well as Finnegan’s Pub in Hudson and Julio’s Liquors in Westborough.
Checks can be sent to Vital at 12 Gordon Rd, Marlborough, 01752. All donations are tax deductible. For more information, visit Sweats4Vets.com.
