As a part of The Heritage Hotel Manila’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, the Hotel has recently awarded the proceeds of its companywide fund-raising campaign to Shepherd of the Hills foundation. The beneficiary is a non-government organization helping street children and orphans have more meaningful lives through music therapy and provisions for basic care and education.
Employee involvement was a key ingredient in pooling the donation via ticket sales supporting the candidates of the health and wellness program dubbed as “Love Your Body: The Heritage Hotel’s Fitness Challenge 2008.”
In the spirit of fun and camaraderie, representatives of various departments embarked on a lose weight program wherein selected managers and staff were encouraged to lead a more active lifestyle. Colleagues cheered and championed their candidates by means of ticket sales.
The Shepherd of the Hills Foundation is endorsed by Tin-tin Bersola, television personality and its Executive Directors are Mr. and Mrs. Nathan and Ruth Mejica. The foundation will use the donation to buy books and school materials for the street children and abandoned children they are taking care of in home shelters situated in Quezon City, Pampanga and Baguio.
