Apr 18, 2023
MGM donated MOP300,000 to the Macau Holy House of Mercy’s Welfare Shop project for 11 consecutive years, funding the distribution of food hampers to nearly 400 local households in need.
Carrying on its annual tradition of community care, MGM donated MOP300,000 to the Macau Holy House of Mercy (SCMM)’s Welfare Shop project for the 11th consecutive year — in a bid to fund the distribution of food hampers to nearly 400 local households in need. To date, MGM has donated an aggregate of MOP3.3 million to the project.
On April 15, MGM’s management team members, including Kenneth Feng, President, Chief Strategic & Financial Officer of MGM China Holdings Limited, and Wendy Yu, Executive Vice President of Human Resources of MGM, together with the Golden Lion Volunteer Team, visited the SCMM’s Welfare Shop, where they were warmly welcomed by António José de Freitas, President of the Board of Trustees of SCMM. Kenneth Feng presented the donation check to António José de Freitas, with the presence of the representatives of other beneficiary organizations, including Gisela Nunes, Secretary General of SCMM, Chan Ka Leong, President of Board of General Union of Neighborhood Associations of Macau (UGAMM), and Sou Kin Hou, Vice President of Board of Macao Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM).
For another year, MGM has specially designed a portable and reusable handcart for the food hamper distribution; this year, the design has undergone an upgrade, where the handcart has become more compact and functional for everyday use. Each food hamper contains daily necessities such as rice, noodles, canned food, oatmeal, cooking oil, etc. — packed by MGM’s management team members and over 30 Golden Lion volunteers. The food hampers will be delivered to local families in need, as referred by FAOM, UGAMM, SCMM, and the Associação dos Familiares Encarregados dos Deficientes Mentais de Macau.
Having embraced its corporate social responsibility vision to “Create a Better Tomorrow Today”, MGM has been supporting the Welfare Shop project since its launch in 2013. Through this philanthropic tradition, MGM has endeavored to help families ease their financial burdens, spreading love into the local community.
