Posted on September 3rd, 2019
Del Lago Resort & Casino continues to give back to local nonprofits with its community giving program, Community Cash In. The donation program raised $3,875.66 for Food Bank of Central New York.
Donations for the Community Cash In are raised by guests who donate slot machine vouchers into one of five marked receptacles located at the cage and at each casino entrance. The total of the vouchers is donated each quarter to a local charity selected by del Lago Resort & Casino. This is del Lago’s third Community Cash In donation. To date, Community Cash In has raised nearly $11,000 for Seneca County House of Concern, Foodlink and Food Bank of Central New York.
Food Bank of Central New York serves as the main food distribution hub for hundreds of partner agencies in an 11-county emergency food network service region across central and northern New York. The food bank provides more than 14 million pounds of food — the equivalent of 12.1 million meals — to hungry families, children and elderly every year. Food Bank of Central New York is a not-for-profit organization working to eliminate hunger through nutritious food distribution, education and advocacy in cooperation with the community. The food bank partners with 280 emergency food programs in Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego and St. Lawrence counties.
“The Food Bank of Central New York is an integral part of our community and we are pleased to donate nearly $4,000 to such a deserving organization, which will provide meals for 11,400 neighbors in need,” del Lago Executive Vice President and General Manager Lance Young said. “We are proud to provide this donation to another deserving nonprofit in our region through our Community Cash In program, and we look forward to continuing to support those in need with this charitable initiative.”
