In the Community
The Mohegan Tribe has long been committed to good relations with our neighbors near and far, and the Tribe continues to uphold this today as an integral part of our values and identity. Each year, our business entities participate in hundreds of community support initiatives in each of the communities in which they operate.
Annually more than a million dollars collectively is donated to charitable organizations in the various communities in which the Mohegan Tribe operates.
In Connecticut, Mohegan Sun strives to support the community and local organizations like, United Way, March of Dimes, Special Olympics Connecticut, and the American Red Cross. More than $11 million has been contributed to these regional charities and non-profit organizations over the past several years. Additionally, several Mohegan Tribal members sit on the Board of Directors of more than 50 non-profit organizations and dozens more volunteer their time.
Outside of Connecticut, Mohegan Pennsylvania is a key partner to hundreds of local organizations in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and in Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel contributes to its community, including an annual donation of turkeys to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, providing event space for dozens of charitable events each year, and supporting the United States Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys For Tots program.
Tribal members and employees are actively engaged in food drives, food packaging events and distributions, Read Across America Day, coat drives, holiday toy drives and distributions, Day of Caring, and much more. Over the years, supported food drives have generated more than 73,000 food items for community members, and more than 100,000 meals have been donated to thousands of local households through United Way food pantries staffed by Mohegan employees.
Prior to Thanksgiving, the Mohegan Tribe helps bring Thanksgiving turkeys to those in need as part of its ongoing efforts to support our surrounding communities. Over the past few years, close to 2000 turkeys were donated to food centers in Montville, Norwich, and New London. Each December, the Tribe holds a holiday basket raffle to raise money for local organizations such as Safe Futures in New London.
