In this week’s Thrive Thursday post, we’re headed to the other side of the world – Hong Kong!
Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Sha Tin has been a partner Ronald McDonald House Hong Kong – which provides accommodation and emotional and financial support to the families of children hospitalized and undergoing treatment – since October 2011.
While the hotel delivers a batch of baked goods to the kids every week, the hotel staff wanted to do something above and beyond for the kids and families, so 21 hotel associates spent the day at the Hong Kong RMH, playing games and laughing with the kids and their families.
Hyatt associates also prepared a delicious dinner for the families. The menu included chicken wings, pork chops, and pasta carbonara, with cupcakes, green tea cake and chocolate chip cookies for dessert! The team was able to serve the food themselves, offering even more time to interact and get to know the families.
Associates like Kyle Lo, human resources manager at the hotel, said they particularly loved this event because it gave them the opportunity to spend time at the house and see the patients’ smiling faces.
The day ended with a full and happy crowd. We look forward to sharing more adventures from this partnership in the future! And keep checking back here, because even though our official weekly Thrive Thursday series ends today – we love these too much not to bring them around every so often to perk up the tail end of your week.
