MGM donated MOP300,000 to the Macau Holy House of Mercy’s Welfare Shop project, financing the distribution of food hampers to over 360 local disadvantaged households.
Michelle Chiu, vice president of Human Resources of MGM, presented the donation check to Mr. António José de Freitas, president of the Board of Trustees of Macau Holy House of Mercy, according to a statement issued by the gaming operator.
Nearly 40 Golden Lion volunteers took part in packing the daily necessities that included rice, noodles, canned food, oatmeal and cooking oil, into MGM’s tailor-made eco-friendly handcarts.
These hampers were distributed to the disadvantaged households referred by the Macao Federation of Trade Unions, General Union of Neighborhood Associations of Macau, Holy House of Mercy, and the Associação dos Familiares Encarregados dos Deficientes Mentais de Macau.
Over the past seven years of supporting this project, MGM has contributed a total of MOP2 million benefiting 7,500 people.
