The Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino introduced the festive season Tree of Giving in 2020, as a way to give back to the community during the pandemic. Guests could contribute to the Tree of Giving, situated in the Aruba Tower Lobby, by purchasing a poinsettia plant throughout the month of December. All proceeds collected would go directly to assist island’s food bank FPNC, Fundacion Pa Nos Comunidad, www.fpncaruba.com.
Continuing the meaningful tradition for its third year in a row, Hilton Aruba was eager to spread cheer last month, decorating the resort with the Tree of Giving.
Just recently, the resort presented Gianaika v/d Biezen, director FPNC, and her team, with a generous amount collected in December 2022. A total of Awg 4,361.00. Throughout the month, the resort matched guest contributions on various dates, maximizing the total collected donations.
Fundacion Pa Nos Comunidad was founded in 2009, following Gandhi’s view that poverty is the worst form of violence. The foundation runs a food bank, a clothing bank and a furniture bank, and has been active ever since. It played a major role during the pandemic when it distributed care packages to over 6000 families in the community.
Headquartered at club Kibrahacha, in the heart of the island, FPNC currently supports 250 families, down from 500 last year. This is due to significant reduction in island donations along with the higher priced goods as a result of inflation. Thus, Hilton’s donation comes at a time to help the foundation maintain their commitment to these local families.
