Since the beginning, Caesars Windsor’s Corporate Giving Program has proudly supported the tireless efforts of local charitable and not-for profit organizations that work towards building a better future for our community and its citizens.
OUR COMMUNITY IMPACT
United Way Windsor-Essex - Promoting Seniors Independence
Caesars Windsor made a corporate donation to United Way Windsor-Essex’s Promoting Seniors Independence program. This program is an outreach service offered to seniors in the Windsor area that strives to reduce and prevent isolation, physical mobility, and other health issues that seniors living in low income may experience. This strategy engages seniors living in low-income apartment buildings, where “vertical poverty” exists and brings the programs and services to them. Outreach workshops include Active Aging, Mental Health, Technology & Computers, Anti-Fraud Awareness and Nutrition.
Currently over 73 programs have been delivered to 17 senior buildings and over 1,600 seniors have benefited. This program provides a sense of community to the residents of these buildings and an opportunity for more seniors to become involved in their surrounding community.
Health & Wellness
Pajama Angels – Wing Power Fund
Pajama Angels is a Windsor-Essex grass roots non-profit organization dedicated to creating awareness, action and advocacy for all cancers and chronic diseases through integrative health initiatives. Caesars Windsor Cares made a donation to their Wing Power Fund which provides financial assistance to applicants affected by cancer allowing for an additional 13 individuals to receive assistance during their healing journey with treatment, palliative care and survival. The Wing Power Fund is intended to help people who experience financial hardship as a result of their cancer/chronic disease diagnosis and treatment.
Unemployed Help Centre – Caesars Windsor Cares Kitchen
Unemployed Help Centre supports the unemployed and underemployed in reaching their employment goals by providing programs and services that move people to independence. Caesars Windsor partnered with the Unemployed Help Centre in support of their Community Kitchen and Apprenticeship Program with a generous $45,000 donation. Facilitated by a Red-Seal Chef, this program provides hands-on experience in the food service and hospitality industry. The program is open to students and apprentices to learn valuable skills, become a certified Red Seal Chef and support food distribution to after school programs, community agencies and food banks. Last year, 128,000 adults and children had access to an abundant amount of healthy and nutritious food. Additionally 2.7 million pounds of nutritional food was rescued through the Plentiful Harvest Food Rescue Program and cleaned and packaged in Caesars Windsor Cares Community Kitchen to be distributed throughout Windsor and Essex County.
Essex Region Conservation Foundation – Gold Level Sponsor
Caesars Windsor is proud to support the Essex Region Conservation Foundation’s community fundraising efforts, encouraging residents and visitors to connect with the environment in a healthy, active lifestyle. With Caesars’ multi-year sponsorship, these fundraising events are attended by 1,000 participants and have raised over $100,000, a significant increase to support conservation efforts in our region. Partnering with the Conservation Foundation is part of our broader environmental strategy, CodeGreen, to engage and educate our employees and guests in an effort to reduce our company’s carbon footprint in all of our business practices.
