VANCOUVER, Wash. - Employees at the Hilton Vancouver Washington are feeling especially generous this holiday season. They have once again managed to exceed a donation goal for food items to be delivered to Clark County Food Bank. This year's goal of 5,000lbs was surpassed by a large margin when the final weigh-in of canned goods and non-perishable items measured at 7,500lbs!

This is the sixth year that Hilton Vancouver team members have participated in the food drive for Clark County Food Bank, which provides food to hungry families and individuals in the Clark County area. Individual departments compete to determine who will provide the most food for donation. This year our restaurant team brought in the largest amount at 1,826 pounds or approximately 68 pounds per person!
