Dhahran hotel employees donate blood for use during emergencies in Haj
About 50 hotel employees volunteered to donate blood in support of a corporate responsibility initiative by DoubleTree by Hilton in Dhahran on Thursday.
“The Gift of Life — Donate Blood” campaign, under the supervision of the hotel’s DoubleTree CARE committee, was organized in partnership with King Fahd Specialist Hospital Dammam.
The campaign invited members of the public to donate blood, which will be sent to hospitals in Makkah for emergency use during the upcoming Haj.
“We are proud to partner with King Fahd Specialist Hospital Dammam and pleased to host the blood donation event at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dhahran,” said the hotel’s general manager, Ahmet Antepli.
“We believe in being at the heart of the community and with 50 members of our staff volunteering to donate blood, together with hotel guests and the public, we contribute to the act of CARE-ing and sharing our corporate responsibility.”
King Fahd Specialist Hospital in Dammam is one of the important health projects in Saudi Arabia and is providing specialist medical services for families in the Eastern Province.
According to a company press release, the global motto of DoubleTree by Hilton is “Where the Little Things Mean Everything”, which is reflected in the DoubleTree CARE culture that encourages team members to be themselves and enjoy more genuine interactions with guests. This is designed to Create A Rewarding Experience (CARE) for guests.
