Darrelle A. Johnson,
Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, FL
I am sending this note to communicate how the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina gave back to the community.
We had a contest between all departments to see which could get the most food cans before Thanksgiving Day. We collected canned goods such as Tuna, Meats, Stew, fruits and so on from all departments. In total, the hotel donated 325 lbs. to The Pantry of Broward (a homeless shelter closely located to our hotel). Our donation fed between 30 and 35 homeless families on Thanksgiving Day in Fort Lauderdale.
The winner of the challenge with more than 60 cans was our Food and Beverage (Outlets and Banquets) department. Special recognition goes to Efren Aponte one of our Sales Managers for initiating this cause of feeding the homeless.
