Hilton Worldwide’s largest annual volunteer service event – is an expression of the company's vision "to fill the Earth with the light and warmth of hospitality," building on founder Conrad N. Hilton's legacy of service and responsibility to others. Each location is committed to providing signature accommodations and amenities to the owners and guests we host.
In late 2013, we celebrated our second year of global service with more than 2,400 volunteer projects in over 700 cities in 72 countries. This triples the number of projects completed during our inaugural year of this event.
Team Members from over 900 properties and offices completed projects including resume building for and mentoring of youth, refurbishment of schools and community centers, preservation of cultural landmarks, river and park clean-ups, meal preparation and the creation of community gardens and green spaces. All of the projects focused on engaging Team Members to deliver Hilton Worldwide's commitment to Travel with Purpose® through creating opportunities, strengthening communities, celebrating cultures and living sustainably. Throughout the past year, Team Members have donated over 150,000 volunteer hours globally.
Hilton Worldwide was joined by our network of partners, including the Points of Light Foundation, Hilton in the Community Foundation, Global Soap Project and Feeding America. More than 1,300 local community organizations also supported the company's Team Members as they participated in community service projects around the globe.
