Pune July, 2018: One of the core values of Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi is serving the community and uplifting the needy. The hotel’s team recently celebrated the joy of giving through their Community Action Month 2018 with the theme of Food, Shelter and Future. The entire team came together with much gusto for a number of impactful activities over the course of the entire month. As a part of the association with several NGOs, they provided necessary items like food, note books, stationery, clothes and other essentials to the underprivileged.
A blood donation camp was organized, where employees volunteered to donate the gift of life and hope. The blood was collected by the Serological Institute at Pimpri. This Institute provides blood free of cost to Thalassemia & Haemophilia suffering kids, whose families are unable to obtain blood units or pay the cost of blood for their child’s treatment.
The Annadanam Donation revolved around the concept of food being the essence of all well-being. The team worked with great enthusiasm to donate food grains like rice and pulses to the Madhurbhav old age home. The team also participated in a food donation drive that fed poor people living in Pimple Saudagar Slum area with Robin Hood Food Army. The motive behind this experience was to provide hygienic, delicious food for the needy.
A collection drive was organized for note books and stationery kits for the children. They were distributed to Door Step School in the area and will be used by kids who cannot afford school supplies. Drawing books and sketch pens were given to kids in the age group of 3 to 5 years whereas notebooks and stationery were distributed to kids in the age group of 6 to 14 years. 75 buckets and mugs were donated to the Poona School & Home for the Blind in Kothrud that will benefit 150 girls staying and studying at the school.
Commenting on the success and impact of the activities, Pankaj Saxena, General Manager at Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi said ‘We truly believe that we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Our primary aim through these activities is to help the community and create a positive impact in the city and ultimately, the world. It was a humbling experience for the entire team and extremely gratifying for each one of us when we saw smiles of contentment on the faces of the deprived citizens of the community.’
Apart from this, all the employees came together to donate old clothes, footwear and books to the slum area at KokaneChowk, Pimple Saudagar. Together, they were able to raise a considerable amount of clothes and footwear, all in good condition, to those who cannot afford the basic amenities.
These causes brought the entire staff closer as they worked to raise essential facilities for the underprivileged.
