Hollywood Casino has donated toys to families in the TANF Work Program for over five years.
“I’m pleased Hollywood Casino was able to contribute to this worthy cause again this year,” Carlucci said. “It’s our way of giving thanks back to the community. I also want to thank our cast members for everything they do in our communities. Several cast members have given their own time and money to participate in an ‘Angel Tree’ program with the Tunica County Literacy Council year after year. And this year Hollywood cast members were able to give 22 Tunica children their ‘wish list’ of toys, clothing, and goodie bags. I am very proud of them all.”
Throughout the year, Hollywood Casino supports area communities and charities in various activities including several sponsorships to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
