RIYADH, Saudi Arabia
- July 17, 2014
-- Yesterday, Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated Iftar with taxi drivers across Saudi Arabia, as part of its ongoing commitment to the Holy Month of Ramadan.
The fifth annual ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative brought more than 40 Starwood hotels from across the region, including Four Points by Sheraton Riyadh Khaldia
, together for a worthy cause. During the hour of Iftar, packs of food and beverages were distributed to cab drivers at the main entrance of each hotel.
Catering teams at each hotel prepared Iftar packs which included a diverse selection of food and beverage items. Associates from across various departments within the hotels, including Catering, Administration and Guest Services joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life.
The ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative – ideated by Starwood Hotels & Resorts – has been running since 2010 and has since become an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. The initiative has been widely appreciated by its hotel owners, the community and local transport authorities.
