Hilton Team Members Celebrate Week-Long Community Involvement Programme At Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort & Residences and Hilton Dubai Creek

Thousands of Children in Garhoud’s National Charity School Will Benefit From a Newly Renovated Auditorium & Library

November 20, 2012

DUBAI, UAE - More than 100 team members from Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort, Residences, Hilton Dubai Creek and the Hilton Worldwide Regional (MEA) office took their passion for hospitality and service out into the local Dubai community recently in a major celebration drive for Hilton Worldwide's Global Week of Service.

The chosen initiative was a major refurbishment project at the National Charity School in Garhoud which included cleaning, repairing, painting and, over the course of the programme, team members clocked up an impressive 450 voluntary hours.

Christian Muhr, Hilton Dubai Cluster general manager said: "Our staff are very much part of the local Dubai community and as a testament to our commitment in strengthening local ties, we were delighted to roll up our sleeves and help such a worthwhile project."

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a primary focus at Hilton hotels in Dubai. The annual CSR calendar of events includes a wide range of community activities from providing Iftar to local orphanages, participating in city-wide events such as the Pink Walkathon to uniform and product donations to local charities. Year to date the hotel teams have clocked up nearly 2,500 volunteer hours and their efforts were rewarded when Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort was recently honoured with the Dubai Chamber's CSR Label 2012. The first hotel to be awarded such an accolade.
