MGM Resorts Receives Governor's Award for Volunteerism


MGM Resorts International has been awarded for its efforts to give back to the community.

Governor Brian Sandoval gave the gaming company the 11th annual Nevada Governor's Points of Light Award for its employee volunteer initiative.

According to MGM Resorts, its employees donated more than 113,000 volunteer hours to the community and worked with 850 charitable organizations in 2012.

"It's true that these are challenging times for our state and nation,” said Gov. Sandoval. “Volunteerism, like charitable giving, has suffered a bit as families look inward. And yet, in every corner of our state, members of the Nevada family continue to step up and give up their time. So today, we proudly recognize some stand-out individuals and organizations who have given of their time, treasure and talent." 

The award was given out during the Governor's Points of Light Awards held in Las Vegas Friday.
