The Grecotel Hotels & Resorts group in 2017 carried out more than 100 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs and activities, which supported vulnerable groups, educational and cultural organizations on a local and national level.
“For more than 45 years we have been actively offering our support to society with ongoing programs and activities in different corners of Greece,” Grecotel General Manager Vasilis Minadakis said in an announcement.
Aiming to enhance the connection between Greek cultural heritage and tourism, the group in 2017 sponsored cultural organizations and museums such as the Greek National Opera, the Eleftherna museum and archaeological site, art exhibitions, theater performances and events linked to Greek tradition and customs such as the Cretan Diet Festival.
Grecotel also supported local educational institutions — from kindergarten schools and universities to public benefit organizations.
Furthermore, in efforts to support vulnerable groups, last year Grecotel continued its collaboration with organizations such as the Vision of Hope, Make A Wish Hellas and the Smile of the Child; hospitals and social welfare centers, while it provided more than 20,000 meals to people in need in Athens, Rethymnon (Crete), Corfu and Kos.
“Our goal for 2018 is to further expand our CSR activities… Our wish to offer will remain an integral part of our philosophy,” Minadakis said.
