Harrington Raceway and Casino antes up volunteers for Food Bank of Delaware

MCTJ Harrington Casino volunteers for Food Bank 9-9-15

HARRINGTON — Harrington Raceway and Casino recently began a monthly commitment of volunteers to help the Food Bank of Delaware’s Milford location.

On August 26, Harrington Raceway and Casino team members volunteered for an afternoon shift to help sort and weigh thousands of canned goods.

The Kent County-based casino’s volunteer initiative is intended to be a monthly commitment to the Food Bank and is part of an active engagement in the promotion and support of non-profit organizations.

“Harrington Raceway and Casino is committed to engaging with our surrounding community and non-profit organizations as much as possible,” said Executive Director of Hospitality Hank Rosenberg. “We are excited about our partnership with the Food Bank that does so much good in Kent and Sussex County for those in need. And I must admit when we finished our shift last week we all had a smile on our faces and felt a sense of satisfaction for our small contribution to the great work that is done by the Food Bank.”

Chad Robinson, Food Bank Branch Director of Milford, expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the commitment. “Volunteers are the backbone of our operation here at the Food Bank of Delaware. Each day in our state, thousands of Delawareans are experiencing food insecurity and are not sure where their next meal is coming from. If not for the great commitment made by individuals and especially by businesses, like Harrington Raceway and Casino, we would not be able to assist those in need.”

“Our executive directors are urged to be actively involved with community outreach,” said Harrington Raceway and Casino Director of Public Relations Matt Sparacino. “The commitment to the Food Bank is just an extension of this and is a fulfilling and rewarding endeavor for our team.”
Harrington Raceway and Casino and the Food Bank of Delaware have teamed up in the past, after hosting a Boxing Day food drive on December 26, 2014 that netted more than 12,000 canned goods.

The Food Bank of Delaware provides food to Delawareans in need and facilitates long-term solutions to the problems of hunger and poverty through community education and advocacy. To learn more, please visit www.fbd.org.
