On Saturday, March 12, thirty-one team members of the Hilton Aruba rolled up their sleeves and joined ARUBA DOET 2022, the largest volunteer event on the island. This event was organized by CEDE Aruba, in cooperation with Oranje Fonds, a Dutch Kingdom, not-for-profit organization. Together they mobilized more than 3,000 volunteers, working on 190 projects.
The team from the Hilton Aruba was assigned with the painting of Xander Bogaerts Elementary School’s yard in San Nicolas. The highly motivated team was glad for the opportunity to participate in this volunteer event and feel proud to represent a company that strives for giving back to the community.
The Hilton donated the manpower, drawing highly motivated volunteer Team-Members from the Human Resources, IT, Revenue, Commercial Services, Security, Accounting, Engineering, Front Desk and Executive Office departments. They painted the entire school yard, including picnic tables and flower beds, in a dazzling, cheerful, color combination, and true to the organization’s promise, did good, and had a good time.
Hilton’s Travel with Purpose program is the commitment and strategy behind driving responsible travel and tourism globally and is regarded as an integral part of the company’s overall sustainability activities.
Volunteerism, deeply ingrained in the Hilton Aruba resort culture, often results in its Team Member’s donating their time and service to give back to the community.
