Greenville, SC March 14, 2016 JHM Hotels recently held our 2016 Sales Conference in Charleston, SC The event, themed Build The Best, included a community service activity, in keeping with the JHM O.N.E. (Outreach, Nurture, Encourage) initiatives. The activity was a team challenge where groups of JHM Sales Associates built bicycles that we donated to the boys at Windwood Farm, a boys’ home in Awendaw, SC that helps abused and neglected boys heal. The boys paid a surprise visit to the Marriott Charleston to receive their bikes in person and, they were thrilled! It was a joyous occasion for JHM associates and the boys alike. In addition to donating the bikes and helmets, our President, Mr. DJ Rama, was so touched by the experience, he promised to update Windwood Farm’s aging bus fleet with one of our buses that is still in good shape.
Just a few short weeks later, the Charleston Marriott will deliver on that promise. We are so excited to be delivering a bus to Windwood Farm on Wednesday, March 16th at 4pm. JHM Hotels’ focuses their overall giving on impacting education and poverty, and we are confident that this donation will improve the educational opportunities for the boys being served at Windwood Farm for years to come.
