Hilton Helps Aruba Doet

Hilton Aruba Donates More Than 3,900 Volunteer Hours at the local Food Bank

Hilton Aruba gives back.

Team Members answered the call to volunteer and donated more than 3,900 hours of time at the island’s food bank for the months of September and October, preparing care packages for families in need.

The not-for-profit FPNC, Fundacion Pa Nos Comunidad, has been operating on the island since 2009. Following Gandhi’s view that poverty is the worst form of violence, the food bank was created, with a clothing bank and a furniture bank built-in, designed to alleviate the needs of our community’s less fortunate members. 

“There is no greater joy than donating time to help those in need, and I am proud of how enthusiastically our Team Members have embraced the spirit of giving,” said Glenn Farro, director of human resources.

Hilton Aruba’s “Blue Energy Food Bank Heroes” joined hard-working FPNC employees, and together they cared for over 4,000 families, providing them with food assistance. 

The work is overwhelming, and FPNC is always happy to welcome volunteers from local businesses. Hilton’s Blue Energy crew, says Gianaika, on behalf of the foundation, came in at a critical moment, when help was most needed.
