OCT 22, MIRI – As part of its outreach in the community, 4th Miri of The Boys’ Brigade in Malaysia has partnered Miri Marriott Resort and Spa in the latter’s 2015 Christmas Wish Tree project.

Since its inception in 2006, the project undertaken by the hotel has benefited more than two thousand special and underprivileged children.

According to Mr Lian Pasan, PR and Communications Manager of Miri Marriott, this year the recipients are from the Children’s Ward Miri General Hospital, MRCS Sunflower Center and Sekolah Kebangsaan Pujut Corner.

Miri Marriott will launch a Christmas Tree at its lobby from Nov 23 to Dec 31, displaying the individual child’s card with photograph and gift wish. Guests of the hotel and members of the public are encouraged to sponsor a gift in the form of toys, clothing, school bags, shoes etc., or making a monetary donation to buy the selected present.

“We are pleased to be partnering Miri Marriott this year. In SK Pujut Corner, 50 students from needy families will realize their Christmas wish when they receive their presents and we are blessed to be involved,” said Cpt. Roseline Lee. “In a similar vein, the Boys’ Brigade Sarawak Northern Region will soon be launching its BB Love Box to collect Christmas presents for the needy families in Tudan and Kuala Baram areas. Like last year, we will again appeal to our congregational members for their support and generosity.”
