25 September 2019, Singapore – Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG) has launched a fundraising campaign, “From Our Hearts”, to support the employment of people with special needs.
From today until 24 October 2019, guests and diners at PPHG’s hotels and serviced suites in Singapore will be encouraged to make an S$1 donation upon check-out or settlement of their dining bill, with PPHG matching all donations dollar-to-dollar. On top of that, PPHG will be donating a portion of room and dining revenues towards total funds raised. These will go towards PPHG’s adopted charity, Extra.Ordinary People, to enhance the employability of people with special needs.
Extra.Ordinary People, together with its partner Samsui Kitchen, fill a current gap in the training of youths with special needs by running a vocational training programme for final year students in Special Education schools. It is through this programme that PPHG has outsourced the making of three customised dimsum items, which will be supplied and served at all PPHG dining outlets during the fundraising period from 25 September to 24 October 2019.
Says Ms Wee Wei Ling, Executive Director, Asset, Lifestyle, & Corporate Social Responsibility, “By outsourcing the laborious process of making dimsum by hand to Samsui Kitchen, PPHG is able to alleviate its manpower needs while supporting the shared goal of enabling the employment of people with special needs, as its efforts will contribute towards the students’ employability after graduation.”
Named Asia’s “Best Regional Hotel Chain”, Pan Pacific Hotels Group is committed to disability inclusion. The Group has also partnered national inclusion agency SG Enable for its efforts to provide meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities for people with disabilities. PPHG is the first and only hotel employer to participate in SG Enable’s School-to-Work transition programme in 2017, and has since developed a structured recruitment and training process for associates with disabilities.
