Over Two Dozen Local Nonprofits Receive Critical Funding From Empire City Casino by MGM Resorts in 2022
February 23, 2023
Environmental sustainability has long been a priority for MGM Resorts and the company continues to uphold its role as a corporate leader supporting environmentally sustainable initiatives in the communities in which they operate. A grant from Empire City supported Groundwork Hudson Valley’s Youth Leadership and Green Team initiative to nurture the next generation of environmental leaders. Their Green Team program works with Yonkers Public School students, providing extensive training and placing them in paid environmental jobs. In 2022, the team built infrastructure trenches and rain gardens at various municipal housing sites around the city in response to the vulnerable flooding in Yonkers neighborhoods.
