Boston Community Service
The Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel is proud to be actively involved in local Boston community service efforts. We believe we have a special responsibility to do our part in helping our communities thrive and reach its potential. Our great relationship with the community has enabled us to partner with philanthropic organizations, various national and global causes to enhance the quality of life for our neighbors, our community, and others in need of help. We are grateful to have associates who care deeply for others and who are eager to volunteer their time and energy to help others.
