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 are donated to charitable organizations in the various communities in which Mohegan operates. The Tribe remains committed to combatting food insecurity in communities by offering resources and increased access to food for families in our very own community. Additionally, 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, Days of Caring, and much more. Over the years, supported food drives have generated more than 73,000 food items for community members, while more than 100,000 meals have been donated to thousands of local households through United Way food pantries staffed by Mohegan employees.
The Mohegan Tribe is proud to call Eastern Connecticut home; the region is a hidden gem in our state. We celebrate its unique communities and natural beauty. We are fortunate to have access to beautiful beaches, charming towns and bustling cities. In 1996, Mohegan Sun has helped expand our region’s economy significantly as one of Connecticut’s largest employers. It generates over $200 million dollars to the state’s economy each year through business enterprises and boosts tourism and the hospitality industry locally.
As Mohegan continues to expand internationally, the Tribe will always recognize its responsibility to its host communities.
