In summer 2018 and with the contribution of its guests and employees, the resort financially supported the non-profit organization “The Smile of the Child”, while for the Christmas and New Year holidays, Creta Maris donated 3,394.5kg of food to the organization, as well as to the Department of Social Protection, Education and Culture of the Municipality of Hersonissos.
Furthermore, as part of its environmental activities, the resort collected bottle caps and offered them to the “Association Right to Life” for the purchase of wheelchairs for people with disabilities.
