Courtyard by Marriott to host Coats for Kids

Courtyard by Marriott has something very special planned for the holiday season. This year, the hotel will host a new foundation called Coats for Kids that benefits kids in need. The foundation will have donation drop offs where people can donate new or used coats to needy children.

Donations will be taken until December 19th. On December 21st, the hotel will distribute coats from 4 to 8 p.m. inside the main lobby of the hotel. Sales Manager Brant Lee says this foundation allows them to make a difference in a child's life.

"We're just looking to provide something to children. It's kind of an example that we want to set to the community," Lee said.

Courtyard by Marriott is located at 2130 S. First St. For more information, contact Brant Lee at (936) 632-0777.

Lee says he hopes Coats for Kids will set an example to youth in Angelina County.
