Sands China distributes food hampers to families

A group of approximately 35 Sands China Care Ambassadors volunteered on Saturday at Macau Holy House of Mercy’s Welfare Shop, where they distributed 350 food hampers to disadvantaged families ahead of the upcoming Year of the Dog.

It is the sixth consecutive year that Sands China has supported the Welfare Shop, including a donation of MOP300,000 made to assist families undergoing financial hardship.

The distributed food hampers contained staple items such as rice, noodles, biscuits, canned food, cooking oil, toothpaste, shower gel, bar soap, among other products, the gaming operator noted in a statement.

Sands China has contributed a total of MOP1.7 million since 2013, enough to provide 1,800 food hampers.

“Sands China is pleased to offer our continued support – in the form of both financial and human resources – to Macau Holy House of Mercy’s Welfare Shop, as it provides an important service to the Macau community,” said Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China.
