SARATOGA SPRINGS – Just in time for the holidays, Saratoga Casino Hotel donated a variety of food items and consumer goods to local charity groups in November.
On Wednesday, Nov. 15 the casino offered up over 400 pounds of food and personal hygiene products to The Food Pantries for the Capital District. The items were collected from casino guests, and then matched by the casino. The Food Pantries estimate the donation will go a long way in a time when it is needed most.
Also, on Friday, Nov. 17, Saratoga Casino Hotel made a sizeable donation to the Saratoga Springs Code Blue Shelter. Located at the Soul Saving Station on Henry Street, Code Blue offers a safe haven to the homeless population of Saratoga Springs during dangerously cold temperatures.
In total, over $500 worth of food and supplies were delivered to Code Blue by the casino’s “Hands For Hope” community outreach team.
