Radisson Blu Martinez begins annual Box Appeal
Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel Beirut is working on the Box Appeal Campaign for the fourth year in a row
For the fourth consecutive year, Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel Beirut has announced the Box Appeal Campaign, an annual charity initiative organised by the Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotels, in partnership with the Lebanese food bank.
Dedicated this year for elderly people in need, the Box Appeal involves volunteers from the hotel in Beirut along with the Lebanese Food Bank joining forces to fill boxes with a predetermined list of daily essential items and dry foodstuff.
Volunteers will distribute these boxes to NGOs who will deliver them to elderly people in need across Lebanon. The campaign is aiming to fill up hundreds of boxes, and is also considered to be various schools' and companies’ yearly CSR activity.
“We are proud of launching the campaign for the fourth year in Lebanon,” said Radisson Blu Martinez Hotel Beirut general manager Francois Galoisy.
“This year we took the decision to dedicate this initiative to help elderly people in need, filling up to 1000 pledged boxes.”
The campaign relies on reaching out to people to fill a box with a pre-determined shopping list of essential dry foods needed in households.
This year, the campaign in Beirut is sponsored by Tannourine.
“We are very delighted to be partners in the Box Appeal Campaign for the fourth consecutive year as it supports our vision “Lebanon, free from hunger,” said Lebanese Food Bank executive manager Soha Zaiter.
The Box Appeal was launched in 2008 and has collected more than 90,000 boxes for the Middle East’s less fortunate.
This year’s campaign will include the participation of 24 hotels in Bahrain, Lebanon, Qatar, Egypt, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
