Casinos in Atlantic City have assisted families affected by the Coronavirus outbreak by generously donating excess food to the local community.

The forced closure of all nine Atlantic City casinos has had a considerable impact on the local economy, with casino employees losing their jobs and tourism grinding to a halt. New Jersey businesses and schools have also been ordered to close, which has left many families vulnerable and looking for help.

As more and more families lose paychecks, the Atlantic City casinos have put their own financial worries aside to think of the greater good of the community. All nine casinos have collectively donated over 125,000 pounds of fresh produce and dairy to the people who need it most.

Borgata has given an estimated 30,000 meals to local charities, including The Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City and The Community Food Bank of New Jersey. Caesars, Harrahโ€™s and Ballyโ€™s casinos have also donated a large quantity of produce to The Community Food Bank. Hard Rock Atlantic City has donated truckloads of food to Turning Point Day Center โ€“ an organization that helps the homeless.

Before closing their doors, a number of casino workers even helped to prepare lunches for food banks and community centers (see below). Again, these small acts of kindness have helped a community in serious need of assistance and support.

All casinos in Atlantic City should be commended for their efforts. Mayor Marty Small Sr. said the city was grateful to the casinos, stating that โ€œThis is who Atlantic City isโ€. Hopefully, we can all rally round during these tough times and help those who are most vulnerable and in need.
