Everything tastes better when it’s delivered with a smile. For the past three years, associates from the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa in Thailand have been happily delivering fresh fruits and vegetables to the children at the Camillian Home.
The Camillian Home is a community that provides orphaned children with disabilities, the experience of living with a family. Given the family-oriented nature of the foundation, associates from the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa find common ground from what they experience at work and are always happy to spend some time with the children following their delivery.
The kids are ecstatic to have extra visitors and love conversing with associates, singing songs with them, or hosting their own fashion shows for them. If the associates are lucky, the kids will give them a peek at the chicken farm, vegetable farm, and fish pond that they care for.
The kids are always delighted to host visitors, but the associates enjoy the time they spend with the kids just as much (and, maybe, even more). Delivering fresh produce to the needy can make a difference, but spending time to connect more deeply with those in need is the part our associates enjoy most.
