Being charitable, generous and giving are just some of the kind virtues we are encouraged to act upon during the holy month of Ramadan. If you are looking for an easy way to give back to the community, you might want to consider being a part of the #AKiloOfKindness campaign by Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers. The hotel has teamed up with Beit Al Kheir, a special local charity that will benefit from the donation. All you have to do is donate a kilogram of non-perishable food items, and these will be distributed among the less-fortunate.
Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers is looking for ‘Kilos of Kindness’ this Ramadan.
The food-raising drive invites anyone to donate non-perishable food items by simply dropping supplies off at the hotel lobby during Ramadan until 30 June 2016. Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers is supporting Beit Al Kheir, the special charity that will benefit from the donation.
Requested donation 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
- School supplies
