Company Donates $15,000 to Benefit Neighborhood Children and Families
MONTRÉAL – December 17, 2020 – Scientific Games Corporation (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) shared support for the local community surrounding its east Montreal manufacturing facility with a holiday donation of $15,000 CAN to benefit children and families in need.
