ATLANTIC CITY — Caesars Entertainment on Thursday packed meals and donated funds to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, casino officials said Friday.
Caesars’ HEROES employee volunteer team visited the food bank in Egg Harbor Township, where they packed nearly 600 boxes of food that will help feed local students and their families over the summer.
The team also helped stock shelves at the location, the casino said in a news release.
The leadership teams at Tropicana Atlantic City, Caesars Atlantic City and Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City then surprised food bank personnel with a check for $10,000.
“The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is grateful for our longstanding partnership with Caesars Entertainment’s Atlantic City properties,” said Denise Hladun, the food bank’s director of external affairs. “Today’s $10,000 gift will help to provide 30,000 meals to our neighbors in need in South Jersey.”
