National "Miracle in a Bottle" Fundraiser
Baywood Hotels is pleased to announce our 2017 partner for our national fundraising campaign is with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. We have branded our very own premium drinking water to be sold in each of our hotels nationwide with 100% of the profit benefiting the selected organization. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to assist in finding missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and counteract child victimization. Since 1984, the NCMEC has served as the countrywide resource center for families, victims, private organizations, law enforcement and the public on matters involving to missing and sexually exploited children. We are privileged that our Bottle Drinking Water Initiative will not only give money to a great cause, but can help save lives of the missing and exploited children around the nation. In 2016, Baywood Hotels raised $73,215 company wide for our partner Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Our goal is to exceed those donations each year.
Local Community Involvement
With more than 85 properties in our portfolio and more coming soon, we are constantly expanding, and as such, so is our level of impact for BEAR. Each of our hotels, spread across the continental U.S., individually invests in local charities, along with each region additionally holding annual fundraising or community service events. At our corporate headquarters in Maryland, we partner with Stepping Stones Homeless Shelter every Christmas by purchasing and distributing gifts to tenants and donating free hotel stays. With staff members and employees dedicated to inspiring their communities on a personal level, the BEAR program has contributed to several organizations including LAWS Loudoun Abused Womens Shelter, Mended Little Hearts of Greater Baltimore Area, Heritage Christian Services and have held food drives, clothes drives and clean-up efforts for local parks.
