On the 17th of August 2015, a team of 16 members of staff from Amwaj Rotana along Jumeirah Beach Residence, embarked on its first Community Day all in the spirit of giving back to the community.
The task was to distribute refreshments such as cold water, fresh fruits, muffins and soft drinks to those working around the hotel vicinity in the summer heat. The people that the hotel reached out to included security guards, taxi drivers and builders.
“All we spent was about an hour going around the buildings close to us to distribute the refreshments and we already felt the fatigue caused by the 40 degree temperature. It’s needless to say what those who toil under the sun feel each day of summer,” comments Jasmine Arika, Director of Marketing and Communications.
This is the first of more Community Days that the hotel will embark on. In October, it will re-commence its weekly runs along the beach together with the members of its Bodylines Running Club, a group that convenes every Friday to run along Jumeirah Beach from 7 a.m.
