Hilton Worldwide Spiffs Up Benteen Elementary

Hotel chain's employees spend Friday beautifying Benteen Park's neighborhood school.

Hilton Worldwide employees, in a joint partnership with Hands On Atlanta, spent the day Friday at Benteen Elementary School on a beautification project to spruce up the school's playground.

Hilton picked Benteen Elementary, a Title 1 school, for its beautification day because of its need for a play area.

The Hilton employees refurbished the play area with sidewalk games, newly painted outdoor seating, planted flowers and other beautification improvements.

"We just really wanted a project where we could make a substantial difference," said Tamekia Massaline, spokeswoman for Hilton Atlanta.

Great job Team Hilton! I am sure the kids are so excited with their "New look".
