Macau concession holder Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, S.A. (SJM) has donated 3,000 Macau Jiayou Bags, worth a combined MOP$1.5 million, to Macau’s neediest via six local community associations, the company announced on Wednesday.
The bags will be distributed to 3,000 needy families in Macau, SJM said, including solitary and vulnerable elderly, single-parent families, the chronically ill and persons with disabilities, with each bag containing rice, noodles, oatmeal, canned food, toilet paper, masks, hand sanitizers and other daily necessities.
All items have been purchased from local SME vendors, while the bags themselves were packed by SJM staff.
SJM volunteers will also provide a door-to-door delivery service to the elderly and other needy recipients, as guided by the six associations – namely the Macao Federation of Trade Unions, General Union of Neighbourhood Associations of Macau, The Women’s General Association of Macau, Caritas Macau, Macau Special Olympics and Macau Association of the Hearing Impaired.
“Standing firmly with the Macau community in combating the coronavirus, SJM is pleased to share love and warmth with Macau’s needy families, while showing our support for the local SMEs,” said SJM Chairman Daisy Ho.
“We sincerely thank our community partners for their whole-hearted assistance, and our staff members for their active participation. United in love, we are confident that the Central Government will win this battle against the epidemic, and the Macau SAR government will lead us through this challenging time.”
