TEMECULA – The Embassy Suites by Hilton Temecula Valley Wine Country announced it is an official collection site for this holiday season’s Toys for Tots drive to collect toys to distribute to children in need.
LEADING THE TEMECULA AREA HEADLINES:
The Embassy Suites by Hilton Temecula Valley Wine Country hotel is participating along with all hotels owned and operated by Windsor Capital Group. In the 10th year of partnering with Toys for Tots, Embassy Suites by Hilton Temecula Valley Wine Country is proud to offer a “Donate Toys for Tots” rate. Guests can book the special offer through Jan. 5, to receive a rate that includes a personal $5 donation per stay. The hotel will match that donation for a total contribution of $10. Additionally, the hotel is collecting spare change, new unwrapped toys, purchasing bicycles that guests can donate and promoting Train Cutout $1 donations as well.
“We are very excited to partner with Toys for Tots for the 10th year in a row,” Victor Morgenroth, general manager, said. “Our special accommodations package, along with the toy drop off stations at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Temecula Valley Wine Country will provide the hotel staff, guests and surrounding neighbors a great opportunity to contribute to a charity that makes a tangible difference in our community during a time of year where financial hardships are felt most by children during the holiday season.”
“WCG Hotels is helping Toys for Tots deliver the magic of Christmas to less fortunate children who otherwise might have been forgotten.” retired Col. Ted Silvester, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, said.
Toys for Tots, a nonprofit public charity founded in 1947 by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, is dedicated to delivering new toys to less fortunate children in the community during the holiday season. Embassy Suites by Hilton Temecula Valley Wine Country is proud to partake in such a tradition and invites all guests and community members to join with them.
The Embassy Suites by Hilton Temecula Valley Wine Country hotel will be collecting toys until Dec. 17.
