Hilton Aruba volunteers at Aruba Doet

Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino Volunteers with Aruba Doet

Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort gives back!

As part of the largest volunteer event on the island, Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino signed up to help a social organization, Bubali Sport Park, a facility used by local youth for soccer, baseball, and softball practices, as well as social events, since 1943.

Located in Noord, not far from the resort, the facility needed a refresh which included painting and fixing, and Team Members were happy to roll up their sleeves and contribute.

The Department of Human Resources advertised among Team Members the need for painters, recruited more than two dozen volunteers, who in turn showed up at the designated hour at the sports park, equipped with paint, brushes and know-how, delivering a first class finished product by the end of the morning, in full participation of General Manager Vasco v. Baselli and Director of Human Resources Glenn Farro, with guidance from the Engineering Team.

The eighth annual Aruba Doet, is part of a larger Dutch charity organization with NL DOET, ARUBA DOET, BON DOET, CURA DOET, STATIA DOET and SMX DOET, unfolding at the same time each year in March in the Netherlands and on all Dutch islands. Postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic, it has finally taken off in July. The Dutch fund makes large investments in social causes on the islands and strengthens the ties between the islands and the Dutch kingdom.

The volunteer movement promises the do-good volunteers, a good time, whether they help painting, repairing playgrounds, or spoiling a group of elderly for the day.
