Big-hearted guests at 46 Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts properties around the world have donated 8,500kg of food, clothing and educational supplies to support disadvantaged families, it was announced this week.
Southeast Asian Mövenpick hotels and resorts collected an impressive 2,276 kilos of much-needed supplies with Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu and Mövenpick Siam Hotel Na Jomtien Pattaya together bringing in over 2000 kilos. Mövenpick Residences Bangtao Beach Phuket, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket, and Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali also contributed to the charity effort.
The generosity is the result of the global hospitality group’s successful 2017 ‘Kilo of Kindness’ charity drive, which ran from 1-15 September and asked guests and residents to drop off at least one kilo of supplies to any participating hotel.
“We are overwhelmed by the kind-heartedness of our guests and residents around the world and would like to thank each and every one of them for their generosity,” said Craig Cochrane, senior VP of Human Resources, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. “By donating these essentials, we hope to make a difference to the lives of families in need as part of our ongoing support to the communities where our hotels and resorts are located,” he added.
