GEG Holds Handicraft Workshop For its Volunteer Team and Members of Fuhong Society of Macau

May24, 2017 – In its dedication to being a proactive and responsible part of the Macau community, Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) regularly organizes volunteering activities for its team members. GEG hosted its Potted Plant Family Workshop to bring its team members and their families together with the members of the Fuhong Society of Macau at the Happy Shop of Fuhong Society of Macau at Anim’Arte Nam Van, where the participants were able to enjoy the outdoor setting with a view of Nam Van Lake.

The Happy Shop provides vocational training to the disabled members of the Fuhong Society and also sells their handmade crafts. On the day of the event, the staff of the Society briefly introduced their daily operations to the GEG team members and their families. Then the disabled tutor from the Society walked the participants through the process step by step of assembling their own potted plant. The tutor also shared tips and tricks for indoor plant care.

GEG prepared some refreshments for the event and arranged for the participants to ride pedal boats on Nam Van Lake, making for a fun-filled afternoon. Ms. Jennifer Chou, Director of the Fuhong Society of Macau, said, “Through interacting with the GEG volunteers, our members have great opportunities to improve their confidence through social interaction.”
