PATTAYA, Thailand - In celebration of Hilton Worldwide’s Global Month of Service, throughout October, more than 30 volunteers from Hilton Pattaya donated computer equipment to Pattaya City School No. 5 and No. 11 and helped spruce up their learning centers. Community service is a century-old tradition for Hilton Worldwide. Throughout the year, team members dedicate their time, passion and unique brand of hospitality to create positive change in their local communities. Hilton Pattaya’s efforts are a part of the month-long celebration of the company’s year-round commitment to serving and enriching the communities where Hilton Worldwide team members live, work and travel.

“We are delighted to take the lead on this community project and support Hilton Worldwide’s Global Month of Service. Our team members came up with a great idea that we should donate used computers and related equipment to nonprofit organizations or local schools. We provided 20 sets of refurbished computers to Pattaya City School No.5 and No. 11. In addition to the equipment, Hilton Pattaya provided computer technicians to assist in the evaluation and repair,” said Rudolf Troestler, general manager, Hilton Pattaya.

“We would like to thank you Hilton Pattaya for seeing it crucial to extend a helping hand to the community. These electrical goods will bring the student access to computer technology,” said Jirasak Jitsom, Director of Pattaya School No. 11.

Global Month of Service is Hilton Worldwide’s largest annual community service initiative and mobilizes hundreds of thousands of team members from every region to engage in numerous volunteer events and activities happening around the world. Volunteers offer their time to support a wide range of projects including conserving natural resources, mentoring and training young people, creating amenity care packages for communities in need, collecting surplus food and distributing to underserved communities and aiding local communities devastated by disaster.

Since its inaugural service celebration in 2012, Hilton volunteers have provided support to more than 6,700 projects worldwide and contributing more than 300,000 hours of community service. Last year, in just one week, Hilton hosted more than 3,500 projects in 86 countries, totaling more than 150,000 hours. The company aims to complete 3,750 projects across its global footprint.

Team members are encouraged to share their personal stories of hospitality and community service. Throughout the month, photos, videos and stories will be posted at www.hiltonworldwide.com/serve, on the Hilton Worldwide Facebook page and on the @HiltonWorldwide Twitter account.
