It has been announced today by Wynn Resorts; an American publicly traded corporation based in Paradise, Nevada that is a developer and operator of high end hotels and casinos, that it has put together a food and aid donation package that it is distributing to local medical facilities and non-profit organisations.
In a bulletin released a few hours ago, the firm states that it is donating over 2.5 million dollars worth of goods this week.
Reportedly, the aid package includes ‘240,000 N95 equivalent CDC approved respirator masks, 600,000 surgical masks, 500,000 pairs of medical gloves and thousands of medical gowns’ donated to hospitals throughout Las Vegas.
Matt Maddox, chief executive officer of Wynn Resorts commented on the announcement:
“Our support will only continue to rise as we identify new ways to fill financial and supply chain gaps in our home communities. We are working together with the medical community and charitable partners to ensure we are providing meaningful help where it matters the most.”
Wynn Resorts has also provided ‘thousands of protective gloves and surgical masks to local nursing homes and law enforcement facilities that are battling supply shortages related to the pandemic’.
