7 December, PETALING JAYA – The festive season this year might be more subdued, but Tropicana Gardens Mall, a subsidiary of the property developer Tropicana Corporation Berhad (Tropicana) did not let its spirit of giving dim. Instead of spending a huge sum of budget on dressing up the mall, Tropicana’s Tree of Charity promotes the joy of rallying the community and its employees to give back to the underprivileged community.
Dion Tan, Tropicana’s Group Managing Director underlines the importance of spreading Christmas cheers especially to those affected by the pandemic this year. More so to the underprivileged communities that are badly hit.
“If there is a time to show the true meaning of Christmas – the spirit of giving and spreading joy – it’s this year. For many years, we have championed our charity drive and the spirit of giving is always close to our hearts. This year is no exception. Our Tree of Charity Christmas program will be held at our Tropicana Gardens Mall, focusing on promoting our donation initiatives,” he said.
Tropicana Gardens Mall, the biggest neighbourhood mall nestled at the heart of Kota Damansara and flanked by the popular Tropicana Golf & Country Resort and Tropicana Indah Resort Homes, aims to be the pulse of these 3 townships. Tropicana urges the residents of the surrounding areas and patrons of the mall to donate what they can through:
