Participants Make the Ultimate Donation to Their Community at the Courtyard Montreal Airport
MONTREAL, QC -- (Marketwired) -- May 05, 2015 -- If blood is a life force of the human body, then the Courtyard Montreal Airport is a life force in its community. On April 7, 2015, this hotel near Ville Saint-Laurent hosted its first blood clinic in conjunction with Héma-Québec. And the benefits go straight to the heart of the hotel's hometown.
The Courtyard Montreal Airport committed itself to the success of its first blood drive in multiple ways. To start, the property donated state-of-the-art meeting space near the Montreal Airport so that participants could enjoy both comfort and privacy while donating blood. The hotel also provided equipment for seamless operation, and it reached out to its network of partners to ensure a good turnout.
The event enjoyed additional publicity from the Chamber of Commerce of Ville Saint-Laurent and local radio, all of which helped attract the presence of Mayor Alan de Sousa and many big-hearted donors.
As a premier destination among West Island hotels, the Courtyard Montreal Airport welcomed participants with more than 1,800 square feet of stylish, contemporary event space. The hotel's seven flexible function rooms routinely accommodate both meetings and social events with panache, offering high-tech amenities like LCD projection and A/V equipment, as well as customisable menus for everything from coffee breaks to wedding dinners. And with on-site parking, free Wi-Fi access throughout the property and complimentary airport shuttle service, the hotel is ideal for business travellers, vacationers and day guests alike.
Héma-Québec operates approximately 3,000 blood drives to deliver more than 500,000 blood products to Quebec hospitals each year. In addition to blood and blood products, the organisation collects human tissues, cord blood, breastmilk and other human biological products.
While April's blood drive was the hotel's first, its effects will be felt by countless people in the months to come. And that goodwill is the lifeblood of any community.
