Marriott Manila on the other hand was here as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility aka corporate conscience.This is Marriott Manila's Spirit to Serve.
"It felt like Christmas in September"----that's me quoting myself.It was a time when you feel the spirit of joy and giving is very much alive.
Part of the day's activity was to entertain the kids and the housekeeping staff of Marriott Manila prepared dance and song numbers for the kids.And the kids of Pangarap Foundation also showed their talents.There were also games which made the atmosphere festive.Indeed,felt like a Christmas Party for a cause.
I felt how the employees of Marriott interact with the kids of Pangarap Foundation and the sincerity to share their time and talent to them.
Many of the kids who qualified the initial screening to check for allergies for example were given vaccine that day.
Two weeks prior to the event, no less than twenty international chefs of Marriott from different countries cooked for 200 kids at Timoteo Paez Elementary School in Pasay City.http://www.recyclebinofamiddlechild.com/2012/09/marriott-hotel-manila-cooks-with-heart.html
