Since temporarily closing doors during the coronavirus situation, Caesars Entertainment resorts have given back to the community in a time of need.
Over the past couple of days, resorts in Las Vegas have donated 116 pallets worth of perishable food items - such as dairy, eggs and produce - to Three Square Food Bank. The food was dispersed to the nonprofit’s 43 emergency food distribution sites throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
Additionally, 10 pallets of perishables were donated to others in the community, including Las Vegas Rescue Mission, and our long-time diversity partners City Impact Foundation, Macedonia Outreach Social Enrichment Services (MOSES) and Share Village.
Fourteen pallets of perishables went to the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Emergency Operations Center.
And the resorts in the Las Vegas area aren’t the only ones stepping up.
Harrah’s Reno donated 150 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Catholic Charities received 500 meals and the Gospel Mission received 100 meals. Hash House A Go Go also donated 200 pounds worth of food to Catholic Charities.
Harrah’s Resort Southern California donated more than 8,000 pounds of produce and refrigerated items to the San Diego Food Bank. The resort also donated 805 pounds of food to The Foundry Escondido.
