Gold Strike employees give back to community
TUNICA – Employees from the just reopened Gold Strike Tunica resort have demonstrated their dedication to the communities where they live and work by donating time and resources to the region’s flood and tornado victims. MGM Resorts International’s Gold Strike Casino Resort Tunica reopened May 18 after a two week temporary closure due to the near-record flooding of the Mississippi River, and employees used the downtime to give back to the community.
Gold Strike Tunica and the American Red Cross teamed up to provide support to Mississippi and Tennessee residents whose lives have been disrupted by the historic flooding. During the resort’s temporary closure, more than 40 Gold Strike employees completed three-hour training in damage assessment and shelter operations according to the mission, principles and quality service delivered by the Red Cross to the communities they serve.
