Macau, July 7, 2021 – Wynn is continually committed to caring for society and actively contributing to the development of the Macau community. This year, Wynn has maintained its support of the Welfare Shop Project of Macau Holy House of Mercy (SCMM) through a donation of MOP300,000, as well as sponsoring the distribution of food hampers to 375 underprivileged families. This marks nine consecutive years of Wynn contributing to the continued operation of the SCMM Welfare Shop Project.

Ms. Linda Chen, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of Wynn Macau, Limited, presented the MOP300,000 donation cheque to Mr. António José de Freitas, President of the Board of Trustees of SCMM.

Wynn has a long history of giving back to the community, as well as participating in and sponsoring charitable and public welfare activities, with the aim of spreading love and care to every corner of the society. This year, about 30 Wynn volunteers distributed 375 food baskets containing food and daily necessities to underprivileged families at the Welfare Shop Project of Macau Holy House of Mercy (SCMM) on July 6 and 10 to help address day-to-day needs. In addition, Wynn also provided each beneficiary family with a supermarket cash voucher worth MOP100 as a token of appreciation.
