Wynn is supporting the SCMM Welfare Shop Project for the sixth consecutive year. This year, Wynn has brought together 45 enthusiastic participants from the Wynn Employees (WE) Volunteer Team to help prepare food hampers containing basic food and daily necessities and distribute them to the beneficiary families, helping ease their day-to-day cost of living. Furthermore, Wynn also gave out MOP100 supermarket vouchers to each household.
