Five Italian Hilton hotels take a front line position for Global Week of Service

This year, five Italian hotels of the international Hilton chain participated in the second edition of “Global Week of Service”, a far-reaching volunteer project developed by Hilton Worldwide on a global level which involves all the team members of the groups and sees them engaged in projects of social responsibility.

This year, the week of volunteer projects, now in its second edition, was held from 6 to 12 October and, in Italy, involved employees of the Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, the Hilton Florence Metropole, the Hilton Garden Inn Florence Novoli, the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice and the Hilton Milan, which took part in five projects organized in collaboration with numerous volunteer associations.

The Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts dedicated an entire week to restoring the building that houses Casa Famiglia AGAR, a shelter for homeless people, to whom the keys of the new site were given in the presence of former fullback of A.S. Roma Vincent Candela.

More than twenty volunteers of the Florence hotels, Hilton Florence Metropole and Hilton Garden Inn Florence Novoli, gave their support to the initiative with the donation of blood at the Avis headquarters in Florence and by serving dinner in the canteen of the Tuscany branch of Caritas.

The staff of Hilton Molino Stucky Venice helped out at the Caritas canteen in Venice, both preparing and serving dinner; while those working at the Hilton Milan organized five-a-side football matches for disadvantaged youngsters of the Associazione Famiglie di Disabili Intellettivi e Relazionali (ANFFAS), with a final cup for the winners and small gadgets for all participants.

In 2012, the first edition of Global Week of Service, involved more than 800 volunteers from more than 600 facilities of the group in 401 cities throughout the world. This year too, the initiative registered hundreds of volunteer activities across the globe.
