Macau, Thursday, July 20, 2017 – Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (NASDAQ: MLCO) (“Melco Resorts & Entertainment”, “Melco” or the “Company”), a developer, owner and operator of gaming and entertainment resort facilities, is committed to giving back to the community in which it grows its business. Melco employees participated in the annual blood drive held at the Company’s properties – Studio City, City of Dreams and Altira – from July 3 to July 14. Melco’s first blood drive was held in 2013, to date, nearly 1,000 employees have given blood. The annual blood drive has become a Melco tradition.
One of the donors, Sammy Hui from the corporate office, said, “As part of Macau, I believe it is the right thing to do to serve the community. Giving blood is a small gesture, but it helps patients in need. I’m glad Melco organizes the annual blood drive, allowing us to donate blood conveniently.”
Dr. Crystal Hui, Consultant Hematologist and Director of the Macau Blood Transfusion Services Center, said, “As much as medical technology continues to advance, there remains no substitute for blood. Currently, 74% of the blood in the Macau Blood Bank comes from regular donors, and 26% from blood donation activities organized by corporations, schools and government departments. We are very thankful for the support from corporations like Melco. Their regular blood drive helps replenish the blood bank and local hospitals.”
Ms. Akiko Takahashi, Executive Vice President and Chief Officer of HR/CSR, said “The blood drive highlights Melco’s commitment towards the community in which it operates. We are very supportive of the noble cause to give the gift of life, and to replenish the blood bank in Macau. I wish to thank everyone who has given blood. I see goodness in them to help save lives. Over the past few years, Melco has formed a close and long term relationship with the Macau Blood Transfusion Services Center. We intend to keep the tradition going every summer where there is an increasing need of blood.”
