OUR COMMUNITY IMPACT

Caesars Windsor is proud to invest in local non-profit organizations to enrich the community where we do business, where we live and where we play.

OUR HEROS

We believe that donating our time, talent and resources are equally important. Our HERO (Helping Employees Reach Out) employee volunteer program enables, encourages and empowers employees to be leaders in our community by embodying the spirit of People, Planet, Play. We are continually overwhelmed by the passion, dedication and generosity of our employee HEROs. Each year our HEROs give thousands of hours volunteering in our community to help improve the lives of others.

Health & Wellness

Windsor Essex Therapeutic Riding Association - Cupboard Project

Windsor-Essex Therapeutic Riding Association (WETRA) is a non-profit centre of excellence for innovative equine therapies.  Nearly 200 persons with special needs receive therapy at WETRA each week. Children and adults with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, head injuries, post stroke and learning disabilities enjoy the physical and psychological benefits of equine assistedtherapies.

Thanks to a $10,000 Caesars Windsor Cares donation for a cupboard project of specialized and adapted equipment, WETRA is able to continue to change the lives of individuals living with disabilities.  This specialized equipment enhances the rider’s success and increases comfort for the therapy horse as well as volunteers working with the team. 

The Caesars Cupboard project has allowed WETRA to also provide a positive and enriching volunteering experience for community members dedicated to WETRA and its clients, as volunteers have been equipped with the right tools to assist their clients in programs such as carriage driving, riding and equine management.

“Thank you Caesars Windsor Cares! Because of your support, our instructors have been able to select from a wide range of saddles, reins and manipulatives, allowing them to choose appropriate equipment to support individual needs. Our clientele now have the added support they require to enjoy equine services with comfort, dignity and stability that other riding stables simply cannot offer. Families and caregivers have peace of mind while their fragile loved ones are mounted on horseback.”  - Samm Manherz, Program Coordinator/WETRA Instructor

Community Enrichment

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is a nonprofit organization in the United States and Canada that seeks to stop drunk driving, support those affected by drunk driving, prevent underage drinking, and strive for stricter impaired driving policy, whether that impairment is caused by alcohol or any other drug.

Thanks to a generous $12,700 donation made by Caesars Windsor Cares to the Campaign 911 – Road Signage program, MADD Windsor & Essex County was able to install over 120 signs in Windsor-Essex County to help promote awareness of their 911 Campaign.

Campaign 911 encourages and empowers the Windsor-Essex community to report suspected impaired driving by calling 911. Impaired driving is the #1 criminal cause of death in Canada and, yet, every impaired driving crash is preventable. 

The support from Caesars Windsor Cares benefited our community and surrounding municipalities by opening the dialogue across the country with other MADD chapters and community leaders.  It is a highly visible campaign where 911 Communications and Police Services have reported pedestrians and motorists using 911 to report suspected impaired drivers.

Caesars Windsor Corporate Giving Devonwood Nature Trail

CodeGreen

Essex Region Conservation Authority – Devonwood Conservation Area Nature Trail

The Caesars Windsor Nature Trail officially opened at Devonwood Conservation Area this fall thanks to a generous donation investment from Caesars Windsor Cares

The 4.5 kilometre trail has been completely resurfaced to improve safety, accessibility and natural connections at Windsor’s only Conservation Area and urban forest. In addition to the overhauled trails, benches have been rebuilt, the parking lot improved and a safety light added making it an inviting destination to enjoy the outdoors on foot or bike. Located on Division Road just north of Cabana, it is believed that no other forest in Canada supports a greater diversity of oak trees.

 

Caesars Windsor Corporate Giving Art Therapy Program

Seniors

Alzheimer Society Windsor-Essex – Art Therapy Program  

For many, painting is a relaxing hobby. For individuals with Alzheimer’s, it can be therapeutic.  The Creative Art Expression program at the Alzheimer Society of Windsor-Essex provides art therapy to help stimulate the mind of a person with dementia.   

Through art, participants are able to enhance their communication skills, express themselves in a creative manner and socialize with others also living with the disease. “It reduces stress and anxiety,” said Sarah Overton, Education and Support Coordinator. “It also helps with isolation. Often people are withdrawn after a dementia diagnosis because they are afraid to go out or say something wrong. This program gives them a safe social opportunity.”

In Windsor-Essex County 7,500 people have been diagnosed with dementia.  Thanks to a donation from Caesars Windsor Cares, the Alzheimer Society is able to deliver this program, benefitting those living with the disease, and their care partners.
