In view of the yearly charity event G Hotel organizes for the underprivileged, they have decided to do something different this year. Initially, G Hotel made the Covid Vaccinated pins available to just staffs, as an effort in informing the guest that they are being served by staffs who are fully vaccinated. This is done in keeping guests safe and worry-free when staying or dining in. But due to the requests from public, G Hotel made the pins available at RM10/pc and all proceeds including the cost of pins will be donated to the Family Hope Welfare Association. The response was amazing with support from everywhere pouring that G Hotel managed to sell all the pins.
A mock cheque amounting RM1,600 was presented to Agnes Pragasam and Timothy Finian, both Secretary and Advisor of Family Hope Welfare Association respectively by G Hotel Gurney’s general manager, Mr Michael Hanratty together with the hotel’s top management team.
Timothy and Agnes expressed gratitude to the hotel, saying: “This cash donation will be of great help this Christmas and New Year. The money will be used for getting uniforms, Christmas presents for around 50 children ranging from the age of 2 to 20 years old, medical expenses and groceries,” they added.
The Family Hope Welfare Association is an independent welfare organisation founded in 2010 and its office is located in the Caring Society Complex on Jalan Utama. Family Hope Welfare Association helps single mothers and widows, families and also provides aid to needy families, patients and the disabled from all races. On average, they help 15 to 20 families with housing, groceries, cash reliefs, rents, milk formulas, diapers and medications amounting to an expenditure of RM3000 to RM4000 per month. Its services are free and they depend on contributions from the public.
Due to the pandemic, so many people and businesses have been affected. Other than doing their bid for charity, G Hotel is doing all they can like rolling out the best room deals, happy hours and to ensure the hotel sustains and so that more people will come dine-in and stay.
Michael Hanratty said the contribution was part of the hotel’s Charity Event in contributing to the local communities in need of basic essentials to survive. As hotel business continues to increase, the intrinsic value of our service and guest satisfaction will continue to expand through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.
