It is truly a Golden Christmas celebration for Barangay Pasil. On December 19, 2018, a huge group of dynamic team members from Golden Prince Hotel and Golden Valley Hotel volunteered their time and services to join hands and spread the joy of the season to the families living in the barangay. It has always been part of Golden Prince & Valley Hotels’ lifelong commitment to provide the Unique Cebuano Royalty Experience. It is in the company’s DNA to provide hospitality beyond the physical property itself but to extend these blessings to different communities.
This year, Golden Prince Hotel and Golden Valley Hotel team had partnered with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region VII in full support of their project known as the 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program). Through close coordination with the DSWD officers and barangay officials, they were able to organize a memorable gathering through fun and exciting games with the kids and mothers. After which, backpacks (bags) filled with school supplies were provided to the children in preparation for their schooling after the Christmas break. The heartwarming activity was then concluded with a hearty lunch happily prepared by the Golden culinary team.
The dynamic volunteers were led by their Operations Head, James Fernandez and closely supervised by their tenured employees: Nerea Mendaros (Executive Housekeeper), Lelet Velasquez (Sales Manager), and Odette Rosell (Senior Sales Team Leader). Employees were gathered from different departments ranging from Human Resources to Front Office to Security to Food & Beverage and other departments.
The whole activity highlighted the message they wished to convey to live the spirit of Christmas not only in December but throughout their lives and to live in gratitude to the Lord of what they have received from the Supreme Being. Besides PRESENTS are nothing compared to the PRESENCE of the family members and friends on such joyous occasion like the holiday season and that is the most important gift of all.
Have a GOLDEN Christmas everyone! 🙂
