Marriott Vacations Worldwide’s Legacy of Service Continues

Marriott Vacations Worldwide celebrated its first annual Spirit To Serve Our Communities Day on May 9, 2012 since becoming a separate public company from Marriott International, Inc. With its service day tradition starting back in 1984, the company continues to embrace the Marriott "Spirit to Serve" philosophy to promote partnerships and initiatives that contribute to strengthening the communities in which we operate.

More than 600 associates from Marriott Vacations Worldwide headquarters and approximately 8,000 associates from its resorts around the world participated in various activities throughout their communities. In the Orlando area alone, teams volunteered at: Orlando Union Rescue Mission, The Mustard Seed of Central Florida, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, Grandma’s House at Orlando Health and Rehabilitation Center, Give Kids the World, Westminster Care of Orlando Nursing Home, Ronald McDonald House, Girl Scouts of Citrus and The American Cancer Society, among others.

All around the U.S. and worldwide, the company’s day of service benefits local nonprofits, schools, parks and zoos, hospitals and more.
