(MARICOPA, Ariz. – Jan. 7, 2020) – Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, part of Caesars Entertainment and the state’s only tribal casino to have an international management partner, was this year’s sole sponsor of the Maricopa Salvation Army Christmas Angel Toy Drive. The drive, spearheaded by Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino HERO program, invited employees and their families to participate in the annual toy drive. Collectively, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino employees provided 771 gifts for 176 local children living in Maricopa.
Since 1987, the Salvation Army has been providing gifts to children in need through the Angel program so that all children may experience the magic of Christmas. This year Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, the sole sponsor of the program, invited employees to adopt an angel and purchase toys and clothing items for children in need.
“The Maricopa Salvation Army Christmas Angel Toy Drive is a great way to celebrate the season by sharing with others that are less fortunate than us,” said Barbara Achten, HERO program chair for Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino. “Every child deserves to know the joy of a new toy at Christmas. I’m so happy we could make that happen for the children in our community.”
