Just in time for Thanksgiving, E-Land Group, the parent company of Kensington Hotel Saipan, Pacific Islands Club Saipan, and Coral Ocean Golf Resort, donated 10 turkeys to the Department of Fire and Emergency Services as a token of appreciation.

According to Lindsay Ahn, E-Land Group Corporate Social Responsibility manager, PIC Saipan has been giving turkeys every year to the fire department, and Kensington Hotel Saipan joined this special tradition this year. These donated turkeys are part of the limited supply that Kensington prepares for the coming Thanksgiving Day.

DFEMS spokesperson Derek Gersonde said they are more than thankful for E-Land Group’s support to the CNMI’s first responders.

E-Land Group is not new when it comes to helping the community. Earlier this year, the company donated 130 care packages to COVID-19 front-liners, and 445 relief good packages to CNMI families. Most recently, E-Land Group refurnished the public restroom of Pau Pau Beach Park as part of its pledge to rehabilitate the facility.

According to Ahn, the chef’s special turkey-to-go package is available for pre-order now at Kensington. In addition, Kensington and PIC offer a variety of Thanksgiving promotions for room stay and restaurants.

On Thanksgiving Day itself this Thursday, brunch with roasted turkey and many other options at Kensington Hotel’s Loria restaurant is available for reservation. PIC’s Thanksgiving Long Weekend Package is offered with special benefits. Information can be found on the resort’s Facebook page.

For reservation and inquiry, contact 322-3311, or reservations@kensingtonsaipan.com for Kensington, and 234-7976 for PIC Saipan.
