GIVING BACK

Marina Bay Sands creates opportunities for many of our beneficiaries by inviting them to a wide array of activities on property, ranging from educational guided tours to exclusive activities and events. Off property, the integrated resort also extends its support to the community where its efforts are most needed. 

The force behind our community outreach efforts comes from over 10,000 passionate Team Members who give time and resources to those in need.  In 2018, Marina Bay Sands supported more than 50 charities and community partners, with 4,000 Team Members giving over 9,500 volunteering hours to the community.
 

Inspiring the Future

Sands for Singapore introduced its Career Kickstarter programme, a series of workshops and interactive, dialogue sessions for underprivileged youth in 2016. The objective was to inspire youth to overcome their limitations and expose them to the different career options available at an integrated resort. Through a series of tailored workshops, educational tours and thought-provoking conversations with its senior executives, the integrated resort has inspired over 500 youth on their career journeys since 2016.

Las Vegas Sands Global Disaster Relief & Community Preparedness Event with Clean The World

All hands were on deck for the Las Vegas Sands Global Disaster Relief & Community Preparedness Event with Clean The World as over 1,000 Team Members joined forces to pack 25,000 hygiene kits on Tuesday, 30 July 2019. This was part of a larger initiative by Las Vegas Sands to pack 100,000 hygiene kits across its properties – Singapore, Macao and Las Vegas in 2019. The kits, containing basic hygiene amenities such as bars of soap, dental kits as well as inspirational message cards, were donated to Children’s International in the Philippines.

This year, as an expansion to our disaster relief efforts, Marina Bay Sands also partnered with Singapore Red Cross to offer Team Members the opportunity to donate blood that will be utilised in times of need. Close to 100 units of blood was donated in six hours and almost half of those who participated were first-time donors.
