Giving for Good: Crowne Plaza Doha West Bay Makes a Positive Difference to Local Communities
Crowne Plaza Doha West Bay had taken part in a series of activities during the month of September as part of the annual Giving for Good month of IHG Hotels & Resorts – a whole month dedicated to making a positive difference to local communities and celebrating the efforts of IHG Hotels and Resorts colleagues.
Since its launch in 2018, Giving for Good month has seen IHG colleagues provide more than 300,000 acts of kindness in communities around the world. It is an important part of IHG’s Journey to Tomorrow 2030 action plan, which includes a commitment to improving the lives of 30 million people in communities around the world.
Hotel team members took part in the Cupcakes For Good activity and collectively helped raise funds that were used to donate pet food to the 2nd Chance Rescue Animal Shelter. They also visited and spent time taking care of pet animals. A total of 21 hotel team members also volunteered to donate their blood during the Blood Donation Drive held at the hotel in partnership with Hamad Medical Corporation. They also organised a Clothes Donation Drive throughout the whole month of September. The collected clothes and shoes will be donated to Qatar Charity.
Supporting these organisations, volunteering will help make a positive difference in local communities by raising awareness about the causes. Aligned with IHG’s purpose of providing True Hospitality for Good, the colleagues were proud to dedicate their time to doing good for others and helping the community.
According to Crowne Plaza Doha West Bay General Manager Najib Nasser, they are proud to be supporting Giving for Good month this September as part of the IHG family. He said that it meant a lot to us to be able to give back and make a positive impact in the local community and in the environment.
It was brilliant to get everyone involved in our series of activities for the whole month – from the Blood Donation Drive, Cupcakes for Good activity, Clothes Donation Drive and Visit 2nd Chance Rescue Animal Shelter – helping to engage our people and raise funds and awareness for these wonderful causes.
