Wynn has always lived up to its mission of giving back to society, being committed to participating in and sponsoring local social affairs and community activities in order to spread love and care to the underprivileged. This year, Wynn has brought together 48 enthusiastic members from the Wynn Employees (WE) Volunteer Team to help prepare food hampers containing basic food and daily necessities and distribute them to the beneficiary families, helping ease their day-to-day cost of living.
