(MARICOPA, Ariz. – April 17, 2017) – Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino was proud to have collected 3,503 clothing items and shoes which totaled 1,908 pounds, that were donated to local nonprofit, Against Abuse, during the casino’s CodeGreen Clothing Recycle Drive, which took place on Wednesday, April 12 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Against Abuse, Inc. is nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals and the community to understand the nature and effects of family violence and the resources available to meet the needs of those abused.

Each Caesars’ location creates a plan targeting the goals they wish to achieve throughout the year, which comes to a head during the month of April.
“At Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and at Caesars Entertainment as a whole, we work hard to be good stewards of our planet’s resources through our CodeGreen initiatives,” said April Stovall, surveillance and facilities manager, Harrah’s property CodeGreen leader. “I’m really proud of the work our team put in on Wednesday and I’m looking forward to see how much more we accomplish throughout the rest of the month.”
In addition to the clothing drive, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino recently participated in Earth Hour, held a plastic bag drive, a paper shredding event and is currently gearing up for an Earth Day event on April 21.
