Officials from The Meadows Racetrack & Casino today announced they will once again donate free slot play to guests who donate canned goods for The Meadows' annual Thanksgiving Food Drive to help needy families.
The Meadows will offer $5 in free play for every canned good donated (to a maximum of $15) each Tuesday in November.
Since the inception of the canned food drives, The Meadows has donated nearly $1.7 million in free casino play and collected 305,674 cans of food that have been turned over to the Greater Washington County Food Bank for distribution.
“We’re proud to donate free play for a great cause, and it’s something our guests love to support. We cannot thank them enough for participating in the food drives,” said Meadows Vice President and General Manager Sean Sullivan.
The Meadows has been a strong supporter of the Greater Washington County Food Bank. In addition to the canned-food drive, The Meadows donated all of the proceeds – $53,537 – from one of its test nights prior to opening the temporary casino in June 2007.
