Our favorite Baltimore holiday tradition does more than put us in the holiday spirit; Pack A Trolley makes the holidays brighter for hundreds of kids in foster care. Every year, Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore supports Comfort Cases, whose work brings hope, comfort, and dignity to children through donations of backpacks filled with necessary supplies. These children might otherwise be carrying what little they own in trash bags as they go through the foster care system.
On December 6, a trolley, donated by ZBEST Chauffeured Services, was parked in front of the hotel with volunteers helping pack the trolley. A fun and festive time was had by all as they forth both the #SpiritofSonesta and the Sonesta #CultureofCaring.
Throughout the day, our Baltimore team donated and collected over 400 backpacks filled with pajamas, blankets, stuffed animals and toiletries. The event even made it on to Yahoo News, helping to further spread the word of the work that Comfort Cases does!
It makes our holiday season to bring joy to those in the communities where we work and live. If you are interested in learning more about our #CultureofCaring initiatives click here.
