COPE Partners – JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa

JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa

Throughout the year COPE is proud to support and partner with many organizations and businesses by donating, volunteering, or sponsoring their respective causes. “COPE Partners” is a segment in our newsletter that is aimed at highlighting COPE’s partners in the Tucson community and emphasizing how collaborating with organizations has assisted COPE with the continuation of its mission. The mission and values of the organizations featured will be showcased including how they impact the community at large.

Since 2009 COPE has maintained a steady partnership with the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa (JW Starr Pass). JW Starr Pass is not just a partner that provides a venue for COPE’s annual employee holiday party; they also regularly donate items to COPE for distribution to clients. Items that JW Starr Pass has donated have included toiletries, household items, and clothing. On a quarterly basis JW Starr Pass arranges for COPE to pick up a significant amount of donations at the resort, some of which have weighed approximately 1,500 lbs. Donated items are divided and distributed to COPE clinics and residential facilities for use by clients in need. In addition to donated items, JW Starr Pass staff has volunteered on behalf of COPE at the annual Recovery Walk and Expo, donating and distributing bottled water at the event.

As a Fortune 500 company, Marriott International is committed to community service. By promoting the spirit of generosity within their core values, Marriott International has instilled the importance of community service to each of their employees. Aside from its relationship with COPE, JW Starr Pass has been active in the community working with other non-profits, donating to the Community Food Bank, and adopting less fortunate families during the holiday seasons. Recently, a donation valued approximately $7,000 was given to the Community Food Bank, all of which was donated by employees of the resort. The JW Starr Pass reach is more than that of a luxury resort. As a stakeholder in the Tucson community, the JW Starr Pass commitment to community service is humbling. For those want to donate as well but don’t have anything to offer yet, they can try winning some cash on sites like 선시티카지노.

In 2010, the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa was awarded the Alice S. Marriott Community Service Award, an impressive achievement, since they triumphed over nearly 3,800 other Marriott properties from over 74 countries. COPE is proud and privileged to hold a partnership with such an important asset to the Tucson community.
