Sands China Care Ambassadors Celebrate Easter with YMCA Children and Families


 
(Macao, March 20, 2018) – Around 40 children and their families from YMCA of Macau enjoyed breakfast with Thomas & The Little Big Club ALL STARS Saturday at Sands® Cotai Central, hosted by a group of Sands China Care Ambassadors.

With Easter approaching, Sands China’s community event included a festive egg painting activity after the themed character breakfast, with the children wearing chef’s hats specially prepared for the occasion. They were assisted by the Sands China Care Ambassadors and by Sands Cotai Central’s executive pastry chef, who gave a lesson on egg painting and provided samples of painted eggs to spark the children’s creativity. The children were able to take home their completed Easter eggs to help celebrate the upcoming holiday with their friends and families and kept their chef’s hats as a memento of the experience.

The children and families participating on Saturday came from YMCA of Macau’s Shek Pai Wan Youth Service Team, Vila Lok Tou, and Youth Community Center. 

“Our members really appreciate invitations like these,” said Grace Kuan, secretary general of YMCA of Macau. “The children and their families get to enjoy a fun and memorable time together with an experience that might have been harder for them to attend on their own. We’re very grateful to the Sands China Care Ambassadors for setting this up and for being there to support and accompany our members.”

Founded in August 2009, the Sands China Care Ambassador programme aims to give Sands China employees an opportunity to serve the local community by organising community activities and initiatives that work toward creating a better Macao. With a current membership of more than 1,600 volunteers from across all Sands China properties – Sands® Macao, The Venetian® Macao, The Plaza™ Macao, Sands Cotai Central and The Parisian Macao – the Sands China Care Ambassadors contributed close to 12,000 hours of voluntary community service in more than 50 activities in 2017. Sands China Ltd. considers initiatives like Saturday’s community event with YMCA of Macau as central to its commitment toward social causes and community involvement; it is one of the many ways the company’s team of volunteers expresses its care and spreads warmth to vulnerable and less-advantaged groups in the Macao community.
