The calling was high – to raise 50kg of books to donate to 5 non-profit organizations. But we did it! In conjunction with DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur turning 5, we have successfully raised not just 50kg, but more than 200kg books for donations.
Thanks to a great partner in Avenue K shopping mall, who created space and helped solicited books from their mall patrons since July 1. Internally in the Hotel, we have coordinated departmental book rallies, received books from guests near and far, and gained tremendous support from Pelangi Publishing Group, who donated 30 educational books for this purpose.
As an random act of kindness, the Hotel and CARE committee took it to the streets of Jalan Ampang walking to the beats of street drummers to Avenue K and distributing 3,000 cookies to the public. The spread of cookie love ties to the Hotel’s goal of deepening its presence with its iconic DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie after 5 years of proudly serving our Malaysian, regional and international travelers, guests & communities.
