SEOUL, South Korea - Millennium Seoul Hilton's Blue Energy Committee provided coal briquettes for low-income residents in neighboring areas in advent of the
winter season.

Hilton Worldwide recently awarded Millennium Seoul Hilton with the Bright Blue Futures Best Practice Award in Asia for the first quarter of 2013. Along with the accolade came a monetary award, which the hotel staff decided to combine with coins retrieved from the fountain in the hotel's main lobby in order to help families who are struggling to keep their homes warm throughout Korea's long winter.

On November 5, 2013, members of Millennium Seoul Hilton's Blue Energy Committee, accompanied by representatives of the Social Welfare Division of the Jung-gu District Office, distributed about 300 briquettes to 5 low-income households who reported financial hardships. The large cylindrical briquettes are used in traditional Korean heating systems, and can become costly as the temperatures continue to drop and the cold winter season sets in.
