On May 1, team members from the Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/ Arlington, along with other Concord Hospitality hotels, spent the day helping victims of the April 17 West, Texas fertilizer plant explosion. The team held two blood drives with the Red Cross, and raised more than $250 in three days for the West Disaster Relief Fund. A group of six worked a call center for the Relief Fund by answering questions and accepting donations. Another group organized boxes of clothing and other donated items to be shipped to those in need. The Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/Arlington team extended their hospitality outside the walls of their hotel and into the lives of the West community.
On April 14, team members of the Hilton Garden Inn JFK Airport spent their Sunday morning participating in the JFK Rotary Club’s annual JFK Runway Run. Every year, one runway at the Kennedy International Airport is closed off for the 5K race. The Rotary Club gives all of the proceeds to over 20 charities in the JFK community. The Hilton Garden Inn JFK Airport team members were there bright and early with HGI banners to advertise the hotel, but most importantly to support the community!
The Hilton Garden Inn Valley Forge Team was proud to spend a brisk April morning assisting in the maintenance and repair of the nearby Upper Providence Township farm. The team painted a barn and demolished a chicken house among other needed upkeep. They began the fence work for the Discovery Trail, allowing the farm to be ahead of schedule for the re-opening of this children’s exhibit. HGI has officially adopted this local establishment as their community project. Hilton Garden Inn Valley Forge, Head Chef Gabriel has requested the assistance of Boccella’s Baked Goods, who will be donating a weekly supply of bread items for HGI to deliver to the farm to feed the animals. Additionally, once a month the hotel will deliver the Catch of the Day in their support of feeding the Golden Eagle and other aviary adoptions that need fish in their diet. At the Hilton Garden Inn Valley Forge, You Can Count On Us to serve the local community.
