On Aug. 17, MGM National Harbor, the $1.3 billion casino resort under development in Prince George’s County, Maryland, donated $100,000 to Prince George’s Community College to help support the college’s Hospitality Express Training Program.
The program prepares future jobseekers for a career in the hospitality industry. MGM National Harbor will begin recruiting more than 3,600 hospitality employees in early 2016 in anticipation of the opening of the casino resort.
