  2. Create a PointWorthy account and then link it to your Hilton HHonors account.
  3. Choose your favorite cause from thousands of charitable organizations.
  4. Make a donation using your HHonors Points! Then Hilton HHonors will make an equivalent cash donation to your organization of choice. Donations start at 4,000 Points, which equates to a cash value of $10 USD.

Suzanne:

Many thanks for connecting us with Local Share — so happy to receive the wonderful corn today!!!! You have made so many great connections for the Community Soup Kitchen, which translates into us helping so many of our guests.

I just wanted to share with you a story of those you are helping…..just the other day, a woman with 4 children came to us for food and help.  Her husband died tragically 8 months ago in a car accident. She was working, and living in a temporary hotel, and needed help.  She was struggling to pay her bills and keep food on the table.  We provided them with food and the help they needed to apply for food stamps and rental assistance.  Although things are still difficult for her, she and her family are healing and trying to move forward.  And we will continue to help them along the way.

Thank you for helping us be there for those who need help!
