Paying It Forward with Oakwood

Give With Oakwood is a global initiative to provide meals for the less privileged.

Under its subsidiary Mapletree Investments, Oakwood has recently launched Give With Oakwood, a global campaign designed to spread kindness and compassion to vulnerable members of society. Running from now until 7 August 2020, more than 80 Oakwood properties around the world will make a contribution towards local communities, charity organisations or food banks with every reservation made.

This initiative was built on a commitment made by the hospitality brand to care for its guests, associates and the communities it serves. Oakwood is working closely with its community outreach team to identify partners that best serve the needs of each destination in a direct and most impactful manner.

For properties in Asia Pacific, where rice is a staple for most people, each Oakwood property will make rice donations to a local community or charity, meanwhile, all Oakwood properties in London will give £1 to The Felix Project for every confirmed booking. The Felix Project collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold and deliver this surplus food to charities and schools so that healthy meals can be provided.

In the US, Oakwood is working alongside Feeding America, a non-profit organisation with a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that feed more than 46 million people through soup pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other community-based agencies.
