Under the motto “Give blood, save lives”, the Creta Maris Beach Resort located in Heraklio on the island of Crete, recently held its annual “Blood Donation Day”, with the participation of 56 employees and members of the management team.
The “Blood Donation Day” event is a way for Creta Maris Beach Resort to express its tangible social contribution, the resort said in an announcement. A total of 80 employees expressed their willingness to participate and 56 of them were finally able to do so, following the physician’s directions.
The staff’s strong response resulted in the establishment of the annual program and the creation of a Blood Bank at the Venizelio Hospital of Heraklion. This serves dozens of surgeries and serious incidents, which hotel employees, first and second grade relatives also have access to when needed.

It includes 680 rooms, suites and bungalows, six restaurants, seven bars, seven swimming pools, a gym, a hammam spa, the Asterias Children’s Club and open spaces for outdoor and indoor activities.
