“No one can do the same things that grandparents do for young children. They tend to spray stardust on their lives.” (Alex Haley).
On the special occasion of the celebration of Grandparents Day in Mexico or día de los Abuelos, at Villa del Palmar Cancun we carried out a collection campaign for 2 months and with the help of all our teams, executives and our hotel manager, we collected some useful items to donate to some special grandparents in need of attention and care.
We collected items such as sheets, towels, blankets, personal hygiene items, food, and many others. Staff from many of our departments volunteered to bring the donations to the House of Don Pascual “Casa de Don Pascual”, a small non-profit foundation that helps elderly people in vulnerable situations. This small but welcoming retirement home is located in the center of the city of Cancun and cares for more than 20 grandparents.
During our visit, our team members from Village Spa made these grandparents feel extra special by pampering them with relaxing massages, haircuts and nail painting for the grandmothers.
The rest of our team members from the other departments including reception, security, sales and human resources, helped to entertain these wonderful grandparents by singing and dancing, making moments of great joy and fun happen for everyone.
To all the grandparents we visited, we hope to visit you again soon and to fill your day with happiness!
