Making a Blanket Statement

Aloft Manhattan Downtown

In August, the housekeeping team at Aloft Manhattan Downtown – Financial District, owned by the Lam Group and managed by Real Hospitality Group, partnered with Terra Renee, president of AAWIC—African American Women in Cinema—and the Nass Yook Koom Koom Foundation in their outreach project to help the underserved in Senegal, Africa.

The primary goal for AAWIC was to accumulate 10,000 pieces of donated linens. Aloft Manhattan Downtown was able to put together a generous contribution including 548 various pieces of linen which they could not use any longer.

We’d like to extend special recognition to Executive Housekeeper Samson Mei (pictured on far right) for pulling the donation together! It’s great to see the impact these linens can have on the lives of others.
