Interfaith Works Wilkins Avenue Women's Shelter is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit
agency which houses 65 women with nowhere else to turn, providing shelter,
food, and social services to help them gain independence.

"Providing for those in need of shelter makes sense to us as a hotel company,"
said Steve Joyce, President and CEO of Choice Hotels International. "Our
associates are very excited to help Interfaith Works create a safe and
comfortable housing environment for those in need."

This is another way Choice Hotels is contributing to the local Rockville
community. In the fall of 2012, Choice Hotels provided support to InterFaith
Works Clothing Center, also in partnership with Rebuilding Together, Choice
Hotels' signature cause.

"Our associates want to take real action to show how serious we are about
supporting the local community and so we're giving them the day away from the
office to do just that," continues Joyce.

Teams of Choice Hotels' associates will assist with tasks such as replacing
and installing new mattresses, constructing outdoor benches, installing
individual cork boards, landscaping, light carpentry work and more.
