To mark the Thanksgiving holiday, del Lago Resort & Casino donated more than 300 turkeys and non-perishable food items to local Seneca and Ontario County charities that provide nourishment to those in need.
On Friday, del Lago Resort & Casino donated turkeys to the Seneca County community Thanksgiving dinner, which is hosted by the Seneca Falls Elks Lodge #992 in partnership with Seneca County House of Concern and United Way of Seneca County. The community event provides a traditional dinner to those in need and meals are also delivered to homebound community residents. del Lago also donated turkeys to the Canandaigua Veterans Affairs Medical Center, which will be used for an on-site dinner for homeless and in-patient veterans, and additional turkeys will be distributed to out-patient veterans to enjoy dinner with their families at home.
Additionally, del Lago Resort & Casino employees hosted the second annual month-long food drive for Seneca County House of Concern. Departments within del Lago worked together to see which group could donate the most non-perishable food items for the rights to display the Community Service Contest Award Winner trophy until next fall. Staff from del Lago Resort & Casino delivered the items to the food pantry on Monday.
