Students raise money for charity

30 January 2017

IMI's Social Representative Council led students in efforts to raise money for the Salvation Army...

Hospitality is a field with a strong social conscience – be it through environmental project engagement or community outreach – and this is something we very much believe in and encourage at IMI.

Our Social Representative Council (SRC), in addition to organising student events and activities, is also responsible for leading student charity efforts.   

This semester, the SRC focused on raising money for the Salvation Army through a series of special charity drives.

Events included bake sales and dress down days before a special dinner was held with representatives of the Salvation Army being invited and the 600 CHF raised presented.

The Salvation Army works on various international projects supporting the poor and bringing aid to those whose livelihoods are affected by war or natural disasters.

We would like to thank the SRC and the wider IMI student body for their efforts in raising this money and we hope it proves useful in supporting the Salvation Army in their ongoing good work.
