MGM Resorts Employees Set Record For Largest Food Drive Donation In Nevada: Nearly One Million Pounds Of Canned Food Donated To Three Square Food Bank

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees of MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) more than doubled the amount of food donated to Three Square Food Bank in the largest-ever employee-donated canned food drive in Nevada.

Three Square reported that 922,161 pounds more than 461 tons of food was donated during a campaign in October across MGM's Nevada resorts and corporate operations. This is the fourth consecutive year the company's food drive has set a new donation record, which will provide 768,468 meals to the nearly 100,000 individuals Three Square serves monthly through its 600 Program Partners.

"We are so thrilled at the outcome of this year's food drive, which totals more food donated than the accumulation of the past three years," said Brian Burton, President and CEO of Three Square. "This is the most substantial amount of food we've ever received in a single donation and our agency partners will be so excited to see such generosity come their way. Our partnership with MGM Resorts has been such an asset to our organization, and we are deeply grateful for their commitment to ending hunger in our community."

Feeding America, the leading hunger relief charity in the United States, confirmed that MGM Resorts' 2013 food drive is the largest single company-executed food drive on record within its network of over 200 food banks across the country. Three Square is a member of Feeding America, which annually provides hunger challenged families and relief organizations with more than three billion pounds of food and groceries.

MGM Resorts and Three Square celebrated the milestone donation during a special ceremony yesterday at the Three Square warehouse where the donations are being prepared for distribution. MGM Resorts has a history of setting new Three Square donation records, starting in 2010 when an employee canned food drive collected 38 tons of food to benefit Three Square. Following that milestone, and to recognize additional levels of MGM Resort support, the "MGM Resorts Volunteer Room" was established at the food bank and has served as a vital space to the food distribution process.
