Food-collection drive

Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers has initiated a food-collection drive, ‘A Kilo of Kindness’, this Ramadan. The campaign involves seeking food donations from the public which will then be donated to the less fortunate.

Anybody can donate non-perishable food items by simply dropping supplies off at the hotel lobby during Ramadan until 30 June. Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers is supporting the local charity Beit Al Kheir, 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; clothing; and school supplies.
