FAIRFAX, Va., March 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crestline Hotel & Resorts’ managers, attending a recent meeting in Baltimore, MD, rolled-up their sleeves and answered the call of duty. Nearly 100 associates accepted the company’s community challenge to create USO Care Packages which are handed out to the military in transit at Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport (BWI). True to Crestline’s deep-rooted culture of giving back to the communities they serve, the associates divided into nine teams and set to work in friendly competition. Collectively the teams assembled some 1,550 USO Care Packages with the winning team creating 185 care packages in just 16 minutes. The USO lounge at BWI serves more than 80,000 visitors a year as our military are deployed overseas or returning home. In fact, 75% of the military men and women deploying anywhere in the world travel through BWI.
