In 2014, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino made a large impact in the community through its HERO program. HERO is an employee-based volunteer program in which employees and their families make noteworthy, visible contributions to the community by lending their time, skills, expertise and caring to dozens of volunteer projects throughout the community.
Once again, HERO volunteers broke the property record for the amount of time and money donated in 2014. Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino volunteers surpassed their goal of 12,000 by contributing a total of 15,423 hours.
Harrah’s employees also continue to donate their time and attention through participation in events throughout the year that benefit local non-profit organizations. In 2014, 84 percent of employees participated in a HERO activity, up from 75 percent of employees in 2013.
The casino also provided monetary and in-kind donations amounting to more than $41,500 to organizations such as the Area Agency on Aging’s DOVES® Program, American Cancer Society, Honoring, Hiring and Helping our HEROES of Pinal County, F.O.R. Maricopa, Melonhead Foundation, Maricopa Against Abuse, Recycling Association of Maricopa, Susan G. Koman Foundation, United Way and many others.
