In April 2015, Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing partnered with the Nanjing Red Cross to organize a blood donation for its colleagues at the hotel. About 20 colleagues from different departments donated a total of over 4,700 milliliters (almost 160 ounces) of blood.
Each colleague received a health check before donating. According to Michelle Qiu, director of communications at the hotel, the Nanjing Red Cross employees were impressed with the hotel’s efforts and support.
This is the first time Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing has worked with the Nanjing Red Cross since the hotel opened in November 2014. Looking forward, the hotel plans to partner with a local organization to help save an endangered species of butterfly that can only be found in Nanjing. Stay tuned on our CSR blog to find out more!
