“A core part of Hilton’s mission is to have a lasting, positive impact on the thousands of communities where we live, work and travel, and that is the inspiration for our annual Global Month of Service,” said Christopher J. Nassetta, president and CEO of Hilton. “This year, our Team Members worked together to demonstrate a commitment to service by sharing their unique hospitality skills in truly inspiring ways.”

Throughout October, Hilton collaborated with hundreds of organizations across the globe to participate in service projects from outdoor garden classrooms to mentorship programs to youth workshops. Projects aligned with Travel with Purpose’s three priority areas: creating opportunities, strengthening communities and preserving the environment.

Creating Opportunities

  • In Cameroon, Hilton Yaoundé opened its doors to 35 local students from Sorawell Professional Training Center for Women, an organization that provides hospitality training to young women from disadvantaged backgrounds. The hotel held a week-long series of workshops with the students and a two-year apprenticeship was awarded to one student that excelled during the week.

Strengthening Communities

  • In the United States, more than 100 Team Members from Hilton’s headquarters in McLean, Virginia partnered with REAL School Gardens, a local organization that unites teachers, parents, businesses and students to create learning gardens tailored to specific school needs. Team Members spent the day alongside the students building raised plant beds, installing outdoor white boards and planting seasonal vegetables for children to grow.
  • In Singapore, Team Members from Hilton’s regional office joined forces with Hilton Singapore to prepare, cook, pack and deliver more than 5,000 meals to the local community in Singapore. During the event, Team Members were able to participate in a number of different roles preparing and serving in the kitchen.

Preserving The Environment

  • In the United Kingdom, more than 50 Hilton hotels are certified to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) chain-of-custody. During Seafood Week, Team Members in Bournemouth participated in a local event to raise awareness about sustainably sourced seafood. Students from Bournemouth and Poole College teamed up with TV Chef Matt Tebbutt at the Hilton Bournemouth restaurant, Schpoons & Forx, to serve the best sustainable British seafood to more than 60 special guests.

As a business of people serving people, Hilton has been dedicated to spreading its hospitality from properties into local communities for nearly 100 years. While community service is highlighted during October, Hilton’s Team Members dedicate their time, passion and unique brand of hospitality to create positive change throughout the entire year. Since 2012, Hilton Team Members have completed more than 14,960 projects worldwide and contributed more than 804,620 hours of community service.
