The Hilton Aruba Caribbean Hotel & Casino, dedicated to community service

The Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino launched an internal culture initiative last year designed to increase Hilton’s Team-Member involvement with their communities and colleagues.

As part of that resort-wide commitment to local issues and causes, Team-Members decided to participate in volunteer programs, food donation initiatives, clean ups and any other positive social impact response, once a month, one resort-department at the time.

This week it was the Accounting Department’s turn. Following the request by a PE teacher and Swim Coach, Team Members showed up at the crack of dawn, 5:30am, in San Nicolas, at the Abraham de Veer public school, to prep food and beverage for the annual Sport Day, catering for the need of more than 270 students, educators and staffers, with anything from sandwiches, to cookies, and soft drinks, for an entire day.

Last month, the Front Office and the Kitchen Department undertook two ambitious projects.

Eight of the Front Office Team-Members tackled painting the walls and repairing the ceiling at Colegio Nigel Matthew, while the Kitchen brigade went to Fontein Kleuterschool, a kindergarten, where they prepared 100 sandwiches, and 100 chocolate chip cookies, paired with milk, fresh fruit and juices for all kids and faculty members. The young students also received new crayons and small coloring book made in house.

Executive Chef Olivier Falchi, accompanied by Team-Members Suzen Thiel and Aldrick Hernandez prepared all sandwiches, supported by Rugia Siliee, who put the coloring cooks together.
