Marriott International has today announced it raised €400,000 last year to support youth employability charities across Europe, taking the total amount raised since 2012 to €2.5 million.

The money, raised through its restaurant promotion, You Eat, We Give, saw the company donate a pound or euro for every lunch and dinner served in its restaurants throughout September and October. The initiative is part of Marriott’s wider World of Opportunity programme, which aims to find and nurture the wealth of talent that currently lies untapped in 15-24 year olds throughout Europe.

“Marriott has a long history of investing in programmes that help young people. It’s been amazing to see the results of our You Eat, We Give fundraising campaign and we look forward to supporting young people as they move into the world of work,” commented Reiner Sachau, Chief Operations Officer for Marriott International in Europe.

“Since 2012, our associates have volunteered over 70,000 hours of their time and we’re proud of their commitment to helping young people in Europe realize their full potential and open the doors to meaningful employment.”
