ATLANTIC CITY — On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Caesars Entertainment’s Atlantic City “HEROs” began distributing items of need to the many employees and families in the region who have been affected by the storm. The Caesars Entertainment Foundation donated $150,000 and other essential items of need to the American Red Cross Southern Shore Chapter. Don Marrandino, eastern division president of Caesars Entertainment, and Yvette Soto, major gifts officer of the Southern Shore Chapter of the Red Cross, presented a $150,000 check and essential items donated by Caesars, Harrah’s, Bally’s and Showboat in the Claridge lobby on Nov. 7 at noon.
Additionally, the AC HEROs established “Sandy Central” (an employee assistance center) where employees and their families can obtain temporary housing for those who have an immediate need for a place to stay. The following criteria must apply: their house is uninhabitable; the house is located in an area that remains evacuated; the employee or his/her family face a significant health and safety concern by staying in the existing house. These employees and their families will also have access to the Employee Dining Room during this time.
The Sandy Central Hotline is (609) 236-6620. Learn more by clicking video below. — Carmella Shillito
