MGM Grand Casino donates $5K to Wayne State's HIGH Program


DETROIT, October 2, 2018 -- The MGM Grand Casino has donated $5,000 to benefit Wayne State University's HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher) Program. The funds will be used to support Wayne State students experiencing homelessness or precarious housing situations.

MGM Grand has maintained a strong presence in the Detroit community through their program, Touching Individuals, Touching Lives.

About the HIGH Program
The HIGH Program was founded in 2013 to address student homelessness at Wayne State University. The vision of the HIGH Program is a university community where no student must choose between higher education and survival. The mission of the program is to support students who struggle to balance their Wayne State University studies with meeting life's most basic needs of food, shelter and childcare.
