Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (Nasdaq: MLCO) advocates giving back to the community and actively supports, encourages and facilitates volunteer programs for employees throughout the year. Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, hosted an event yesterday to share appreciation towards employee volunteers for their time and efforts benefiting Macau’s wider community. Last year, Melco employees dedicated over 136,000 hours to volunteerism to benefit 40 local NGO’s, with more than 9,700 employee headcounts recorded at volunteering events.

Mr. Lawrence Ho expressed: “Caring for the community is core to Melco’s culture and corporate vision to contribute to the growth and future of the communities we serve. We have been at the forefront of developing one-of-a-kind volunteer events, and the purpose of the recognition event is to communicate our gratitude to Melco’s volunteering team; to thank them for their proactive participation during personal time, and to recognize their tireless efforts in positively impacting the community. We also extend our gratitude to partnering associations, as Melco continues to work closely with local charitable organizations to further promote volunteerism, not only within the company, but among the industry and wider community.”

Ms. Ada Gao, Pit Supervisor, Table Games, said, “I am proud to be a member of the Melco Volunteer family. The company organizes plentiful and varied volunteer opportunities throughout the year, and encourages employees to bring along family members and friends. I am highly appreciative of such initiatives as they are excellent opportunities for both myself and my family to learn about important values such as offering help to those in need, and the virtues of respect for the elderly, for example. I will continue to partake in and promote volunteerism among peers, encouraging those around me to join such meaningful activities.”

The event was attended by, among others, guests of honor Mr. Dai Ruming, Deputy Director, Social Affairs Department, Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Macau Special Administrative Region, Ms. Tina Ho Teng Lat, President, The Women’s Association of Macau, Ms. Hoi Va Pou, Deputy Director, Social Welfare Bureau (IAS), Mr. Shuen Ka Hung, Director General, The Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre (CPTTM), Ms. Maria De Fatima Salvador Dos Santos Ferreira, President of General Assembly, Fu Hong Society of Macau, Ms. Kam Sio Kam, Acting Head of Division of Youth Organizations and Training, Education and Youth Affairs Bureau, Mr. Charles Choy, Director, Associacao de Beneficencia “Tung Sin Tong”, and Ms. Julia Lam, Deputy Service Director, Caritas Macau, NGO representatives, members of Melco’s executive team and over 1,100 Melco volunteers. Awards for most enthusiastic and inspirational volunteers, as well as the department with the highest number of volunteering participants were among those presented to recognize individuals and teams for their outstanding work in volunteerism.
