Goodwill can be simply defined as giving a little of yourself for the good of others.

To recognize and honor local volunteers, Hilton Grand Vacations hosted an art inspired gallery show, titled “The Spirit of Giving” at Appleton Creative. The show featured a customer-designed Giving Circle™, highlighting Hilton volunteers during the Global Week of Service and artwork of iconic celebrities created by Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida resident, Haywood Green.
