HADLEY, Ma. - In honor of Hilton Worldwide's first annual Global Week of Service, November 11 - 18, the Hampton Inn Hadley-Amherst Area is hosting a community-wide Hampton Helps event to collect bottles and cans to support the local Cub Scout troops.

"We are proud to harness our team members' passion and hospitality expertise to support the Hadley Cub Scouts," said Betsy Riley, general manager of the Hampton Inn Hadley-Amherst.  "Service is core to our business, and we are excited to help strengthen our local community through Hampton Helps by participating in the Global Week of Service. We are asking for support from the community because we know that collectively we can make a greater impact for the Cub Scouts."  

The hotel, located at 24 Bay Road, will serve as a collection location for anyone wishing to drop off aluminum cans or plastic or glass bottles to support the Cub Scouts.  Anyone wishing to drop off bags or cases of cans or bottles can do so between now and November 16, 2012.  The hotel team members will additionally be collecting recyclable bottles and cans left in guest rooms to add to the donation.   

Hampton Helps is Hampton Hotels' signature community relations program that aims to inspire acts of service, large and small, to help build stronger communities through the spirit of hospitality.  Hampton team members worldwide will give back to causes they are passionate about by activating Hampton Helps events during Hilton Worldwide's first annual Global Week of Service.  

Hilton Worldwide's Global Week of Service is a celebration of the company's year-round commitment to volunteer service and is an expression of its vision to "fill the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality," building on founder Conrad N. Hilton's legacy of service and responsibility to others. The company's largest annual volunteer service event brings together team members from all of Hilton Worldwide's operating communities to apply their hospitality and service expertise to the most pressing societal needs.    

The Global Week of Service is just one example of how Hampton Hotels and Hilton Worldwide engage team members to meet societal challenges.  Launched in 2011, Travel with Purpose is Hilton Worldwide's global commitment to provide shared value to its business and communities in four areas - creating opportunities for individuals to reach their full potential; strengthening communities where Hilton Worldwide operates; celebrating cultures and the power of travel; and living sustainably through the measurement, analysis and improvement of the company's use of natural resources.
