Everyone is in full Christmas spirit and looking to celebrate, finding the best decorations, thinking of Christmas food preparations and getting ready to welcome family and friends for this special season. OZO Colombo believes in living the true spirit of Christmas, which means that it is also a time for sharing and thus has introduced a special CSR project to help the less fortunate. The project was initially started to collect items to support the Koslanda landslide victims and the efforts were then extended to help others in need in Anuradhapura area as a collective effort. All items were collected through different stakeholders including OZO team members, suppliers and guests, which were then handed over to a senior officer from the Seva Vanitha unit at Army Headquarters who will coordinate the distribution of the items. Commenting on the initiative, OZO Hotels in Sri Lanka Area General Manager Alexandre Glauser said: “Our company has strong roots in CSR and we always believe in giving back to the community. This is a great source of pride for all of us and we hope that the contributions from OZO Colombo will help to make a difference for those in need this holiday season. Also, we would like to give a big thank you to our partners and guests who have aided in the collection efforts and wish all of our supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.” OZO Colombo has been actively involved in many CSR projects in the past and recently was awarded a Merit Certificate from the Hotels Association of Sri Lanka recognising these efforts.
