Christmas was a lot brighter for many families and service organizations thanks to the generosity of Rolling Hills Casino employees who raised over $8,000 for charity through raffles and recycling programs.
An employee raffle raised almost $6,000, while a recycling program organized by Food and Beverage Department employees raised $2,500.Â Â The money raised enabled employees to purchase gifts for needy families and individuals through the NCCS Northern California Catholic Social Services, Glenn County Adopt a Family, and Salvation Army Angel Tree programs.Â Â Employees also donated part of the raffle proceeds to theÂ Corning Christian Assistance, Corning Fire Department, Northern ValleyÂ Catholic Social Services, Alternatives to Violence in Red Bluff, Just for Children in Orland, and the Family Service Agency of Tehama County.
â€œWe have awesome employees, â€œ saidÂ Gretchen Allen,Â Human Resources Manager for the Casino. According to Allen, community involvement and charitable giving doesnâ€™tâ€™ begin and end with the holiday season. Many casino employees are volunteers for Relay for Life, Expect More Tehama, and other programs dedicated to the health, safety and education of our community.
