Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is once again rolling out ‘A Kilo of Kindness’ – the campaign that pairs generosity from the public with needs of the less fortunate. This Ramadan, more than 15 Mövenpick hotels in the Middle East and Africa, are participating in the initiative.
The campaign invites people and organisations to donate non-perishable food items, by simply dropping supplies off at the lobbies of participating hotels from 6-30 June 2016. Each property is supporting a special charity that will benefit from the donated food.
Requested food items include:
Canned food: tuna, soup, fruit, vegetables
Dry food: rice, beans, oats, pasta, cereals, flour, powder milk, tea
Non-glass packaged food: olive oil, canola oil, honey
Baby food: milk formula, infant cereal
“Giving back to communities remains an important focus for us at Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. Apart from the fact that we are able to involve all our stakeholders in this initiative, it is a genuine feel-good activity that provides so many people – givers and receivers alike – with a smile on the face,” said Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and South Asia.
‘A Kilo of Kindness’ forms part of Shine – Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ global corporate social responsibility programme. Shine’s pillars are Environment, Employer and Social Sustainability, with a special focus on Education.
