Mövenpick Jordan organizes campaign to help needy families

For the sixth year in a row, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Jordan partnered with Charity Clothing Bank operated by the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization, for its annual charity initiative to support the local Jordanian community.
The initiative — “A Kilo of Kindness” — coincided with the International Day of Charity (Sept. 5).
Both guests and employees donated clothes, books and even toys to the less fortunate communities and families in the country.
About 700 kilos of clothes were collected for distribution.
“Mövenpick is always looking to deepen its partnership with the communities in which it operates, helping them reach their full potential, and ‘A Kilo of Kindness’ is a natural fit for us,” said Michael Nugent, Accor vice president operations, Levant and Pakistan. “We are pleased to be working with Charity Clothing Bank on this initiative. The combination of our properties and their network will help us reach out to even more people.”
“A Kilo of Kindness” is part of the hotel’s global corporate social responsibility program, which aims to support and encourage further development of the communities where Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts operates.
