Starwood Asia Pacific Divisional Office played our part in giving back to the community by participating in Together As One between November 1 to 14.

In addition to participating in the Hotel Charity Run for the Singapore leg, all associates were encouraged to participate as a department. All participating departments were allowed to select their own activity or choose from a number of activities that have been pre-selected by the office’s Starwood Cares for Community Committee.

More than 60 participants from the Starwood APD office were involved in the 2-week event. Below is a list of activities that were carried out during the event:-

  • Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen – Representatives from the following departments – IT, Internal Audit, Brand Marketing, and SSO spent half a day at the Soup Kitchen to prepare meals for the needy before sending them to the designated distribution centres or homes.
  • Conserving our Garden @ Singapore Botanic Gardens – The A&D, DTS, and Legal team, together with Finance, took time off work to assist in soil mixing and planting of ferns. The associates also learnt about the composition of soils required for planting.
  • Starwood Cares Forest Adventure – The HR Team organized a Forest Adventure for 34 students from Teck Ghee Primary School under the Food from the Heart program. The students went through a rope course as well as ice-breaker games during the half-day event.
  • AWWA Games Café – The elderly at Asian Women Welfare Association (AWWA) were treated to an afternoon of activities such as Bingo, song and dance, and tea and coffee brewing before ending it off with gifts and goodie bags by the Revenue Management team.

In total, 6 activities were conducted within the 2-week period and all attendees had a wonderful experience. The events not only provided the associates with the opportunity to give back to society, it also strengthened the bond among associates.
