During the charity drive, colleagues at the hotel and center donated items to sell for the good cause. Over 10,000 items were donated, and about 1,200 items were sold during the three-hour event, which raised over RMB10,000 (about USD1,440) for the organization.
“Integrating social responsibility into our company culture has always been the focus of our daily efforts,” said Francis Ke, resident manager of Kerry Hotel, Beijing. “This was a great opportunity for us to share our pre-loved materials that we may no longer use but are in still in good condition and at the same time make a difference in someone’s life.”
Since its establishment in 2006, Beijing Tongxinhuhui has provided social assistance to migrant worker communities. In 2017, the organization organized more than 24 events, which raised funds for the more than 30,000 migrant workers.
Thank you to our colleagues at Kerry Hotel, Beijing and Beijing Kerry Center for supporting the great cause.
