MGM Grand Detroit in the Community
Each summer, MGM Grand Detroit helps award memories of a lifetime through Camp TCTL. The Camp TCTL contest, hosted on the Touching Communities, Touching Lives Facebook page, provides funding for various Metro-Detroit camps and youth programs. This year the participating organizations were Alternatives for Girls, Camp Casey, DAPCEP, In Accord, Midnight Golf Program and West Seven Rams Youth Club.
In May, MGM Grand Detroit team members participated in a full week of volunteerism within the local community for SWEEP (Service While Enhancing Employee Passions) Week. During SWEEP Week, our team members volunteered at Playworks, The Greening of Detroit, Focus: HOPE, Forgotten Harvest and Cass Community Services. During the week our volunteers engaged in activities to help empower youth, completed beautification projects and helped package food for those in need.
At the Heart of Hunger
In the spirit of friendly competition, MGM Grand Detroit, along with sister properties Beau Rivage and Gold Strike Tunica, participated in the Regional Food Fight in February to help fight hunger in the communities we serve. Together, our three properties were able to collect more than 103,000 meals. Along with donating food, team members also helped package and sort meals.
