Being of Service
From West Hawai`i Today, published on Dec. 7, 2016:
WAIKOLOA — Each October, Global Month of Service allows Hilton Grand Vacations, Waikoloa Resorts employees to take their hospitality skills into the community and make a positive impact in their neighborhoods.
The organization identifies hunger as a continual social problem. To contribute to the solution, a property-wide program was developed to give HGVC guests the option of donating left-over, non-perishable food items upon check-out. In addition to this continual effort, a food drive was held during the first two weeks of October, raising an estimated 1,000 pounds of food for The Food Basket, Hawaii Island’s Food Bank. The island-wide supplemental food network collects and distributes nutritious, high-quality food to low-income households, the working poor, the disabled, the ill, senior citizens and children of Hawaii County.
Office space was set up and donations of furniture, file cabinets, computer screens and other items will soon be delivered.
