From food donations to bake sale items, over 900 Team Members from all across Marina Bay Sands came together in support of our 2014 World Hunger Day activities, resulting in our most successful campaign to date.
During the period of 26-30 May 2014, our drop-off boxes were filled with food donations from the Canned Food Drop Off drive – with a whopping 27 boxes full of food donations going to Food from the Heart, a non-profit organization that channels food donations to low-income families.
Our Clean Plate Challenge proved successful raising $1,580 for charity. By making sure we finished the food on our plates from our Team Dining Rooms (TDR), Marina Bay Sands donated $1 for every clean plate returned.
The cherry on the cake (literally!) was the huge success of the Bake Sale, where we got to sample the amazing confections from budding pâtissiers from all over the company! Through the concerted effort of bakers and buyers, we raised $13,162 for Food from the Heart, exceeding last years’ fundraiser.
These activities have been successful thanks to our Team Members. Their passion for philanthropy and dedication to a good cause has helped people in need.
