Harrington Raceway and Casino, 18500 S. Dupont Hwy., Harrington, in conjunction with USO Delaware, announced a donation drive to be held from 2 to 10 p.m. Sept. 1-2 called “Harvey Hurts But We Can Help” to benefit Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas and Louisiana.
Customers are encouraged to bring $10 gift cards from Visa/Mastercard, Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club and Costco. In exchange for the gift cards, the customer will receive $25 in free slot play at the casino. Gift cards will be distributed by USO Delaware for supplies needed to first responders and current military and National Guard stationed in Texas and Louisiana to flood victims of the hurricane. One-hundred percent of the donated gift cards will go to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
“We are pleased to join with USO Delaware and our customers in facilitating aid to those in need from this devastating hurricane,” said Harrington Raceway and Casino CEO/President Patricia Key. “We’ve held similar fundraisers in the past for great organizations like the Food Bank of Delaware, Ronald McDonald House of Delaware and others which have been a tremendous success. We are hoping once again for an outpouring of support from the community.”
