[April 8, 2019, Macau] 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. Over the past seven years in supporting this meaningful project, MGM has contributed a total of MOP2 million benefiting 7,500 people.
On April 6, MGM’s Golden Lion Volunteer Team visited the Welfare Shop, where they were warmly received by Mr. António José de Freitas, President of the Board of Trustees of Macau Holy House of Mercy. Ms. Michelle Chiu, Vice President of Human Resources of MGM, presented the donation check to Mr. António José de Freitas, witnessed by the representatives of other beneficiary organizations, including Mr. Leong Heng Kao, President of General Union of Neighborhood Associations of Macau, and Ms. Leong Iok Wa, President of Board of Supervisors of Macao Federation of Trade Unions.
Nearly 40 warm-hearted 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.
With the vision to Create a Better Tomorrow Today, MGM has been supporting the Welfare Shop project since its launch in 2013, helping to ease the families’ financial burdens and contributing to the continuous improvement of community services for the benefit of the whole society.
