Hilton Grand Vacations “Global Week of Service” Art Exhibit

Appleton Creative worked with Hilton Grand Vacations Club to honor its team members who spent the day volunteering at the Coalition for Homeless of Central Florida. This effort was part of the Hilton Grand Vacation’s Global Week of Service initiative. To recognize these local volunteers, Hilton Grand Vacations hosted an art inspired gallery show, titled “The Spirit of Giving.” The centerpiece of the gallery, The Giving Circle™, featured individuals in highlighted moments throughout the Global Week of Service. Haywood Green, a resident of the Coalition, sketched the mural that HGV volunteers painted that day among other things. HGV also graciously framed a collection of portraits that Haywood illustrated to display in the gallery.

About the Artist

Mr. Haywood Green is an artist and designer from Orlando, Florida. He is a current member of the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida, an organization that provides homeless services and outreach programs to men, women and children. During Hilton Grand Vacation’s 2013 Global Week of Service, Mr. Green led and directed a group of volunteers in painting a stunning 40-foot mural within the Coalition’s campus. The mural is an overall representation of hope, persistence, determination and inspiration.

The Global Week of Service

The Hilton Worldwide second-annual Global Week of Service resulted in the completion of more than 2,400 volunteer projects in over 700 cities in 72 countries throughout the month of October. Committed to serving our community, Hilton Grand Vacations team members were successful in completing 26 service projects, eight of which were here in Central Florida.

On October 7, more than 125 Hilton Grand Vacations team members came together to launch the Global Week of Service by spending the day volunteering at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. In addition to painting the 40-foot mural, tasks were divided among ten teams and included assembling play and exercise equipment, landscaping, enhancing onsite transitional housing interiors, tutoring support for residents, stuffing hygiene bags and more.
