GEG Spreads Love and Care across Macau by Distributing Meal Boxes and Red Cross Family Kits to People in Need

September 17, 2018 – Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) strives to live up to its pledge of “Making a Difference by Making a Commitment”. Before and after Super Typhoon Mangkhut, GEG has been in ongoing communication with several social service providers to offer assistance as needed. Today, GEG initiated a wide range of volunteering activities, including the distribution of meal boxes and Red Cross Family Kits. 

Due to Manghut’s damange to their kitchen, the General Union of Neighbors' Association of Macao (“UGAMM”) was not able to prepare meals for some of the service users of Peng On Tung Tele-assistance Services, as well as many elderly residents living on their own and residents in low lying areas, after the super typhoon had passed by Macau. Therefore, the F&B Departments of GEG’s flagship properties prepared healthy meal boxes suitable for the elderlies. Led by GEG executives, along with staff members of Peng On Tung Services, GEG volunteers delivered the meal boxes to the households in need.

The team of chefs from the F&B Departments of GEG’s flagship properties started the ingredients preparation for the lunch boxes at 6:30 a.m. and handed off the meal boxes to GEG volunteers, hoping to have the distribution completed by noon. The meal box distribution will continue for two days, with GEG giving out over 1,000 meal boxes to people in need. These meal boxes are distributed at noon and in the evening, providing lunch and dinner. Moreover, GEG volunteers are distributing 500 Red Cross Family Kits, donated by GEG, and other daily necessities to residents in São Lourenco and Patane.

Ms. Lam Man Chi, Michi, from UGAMM, said, “I appreciate that GEG proactively approached us in advance of the arrival of Typhoon Mangkhut to assure us of its great support and assistance during any emergency. Without GEG’s backup and its volunteers’ efforts and contributions in those neighborhoods, our service could not have continued under such conditions. I am indeed grateful for GEG’s support.”

Upholding the philosophy of “what is taken from the community is to be used for the good of the community”, GEG regularly cooperates with various social service providers to help people in need, through initiatives such as home visits to Peng On Tung service users. Over the past eight years, GEG volunteers have visited hundreds of thousands of elderly people living on their own. Moving forward, GEG, as a responsible corporate citizen, will proactively participate in charitable events and support social services while encouraging team members to help the underprivileged and spread love and care throughout Macau.
