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 entire month. As a part of the association with several NGOs, they provided necessary items like food, notebooks, stationery, clothes and other essentials to the underprivileged.

A blood donation camp was also organised, where employees volunteered to donate the gift of life and hope. The Annadanam donation revolved around the concept of food being the essence of all well-being. The team donated food grains like rice and pulses to the Madhurbhav old age home and participated in a food donation drive that fed poor people.

A collection drive was organised for notebooks 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 to school supplies. Drawing books and sketch pens were given to kids in the age group of three to five years whereas notebooks and stationery were distributed to kids in the age group of six to 14 years. About 75 buckets and mugs were donated to a blind school 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, “Our primary aim through these activities is to help the community and create a positive impact in the city. It was extremely gratifying for each one of us when we saw smiles of contentment on the faces of the deprived citizens of the community.”

Besides, all the employees came together to donate old clothes, footwear and books to the slum area at Kokane Chowk in Pune.
