SAHARA Las Vegas hosted a team member food distribution event on Thursday, March 19. The resort-casino invited employees to receive complimentary bags of groceries, which included milk, eggs, cheese, beverages, and fresh fruits and vegetables, in support of those impacted by the mandatory closures related to the COVID-19 crisis.
More than 500 employees turned out to receive over 15 pallets of supplies, and leftover food was donated to Three Square Food Bank to support its Emergency Food Distribution Strategy.
Goods were donated from excess stores the resort had prior to the month-long closure. The food drive is just one of a number of ways SAHARA Las Vegas is working to sustain team and community members impacted by the temporary halt in resort operations.
