It is great PR for a company to give to charity. Now one of the leading casino operators in Canada is doing its part.
Gateway Casinos & Entertainment is generously donating CA$78,000 to various charity and non-profit organizations across Canada. One of them is the Sault Ste. Marie Soup Kitchen Community Center, located in a popular gaming region.
Gaming enterprises can improve their local communities with regular revenue allocations to city coffers and various local projects. They are known to generate considerable public awareness. Gateway Casinos has the explicit goal of solidifying its position as a supporter of various charitable and non-profit entities with its regular donations.
Gateway intends to stay strong in its mission in spite of the pandemic circumstances. In fact, its recent donation over the holiday season will help the daily operation of local food banks. Canada also lauds the gambling revenue support of various Christmas bureaus.
The casino operator has had to close its brick-and-mortar casino venues and gambling halls since mid-March. Nonetheless Gateway Casino Sault Ste. Marie has received a green light to recommence operation and is welcoming back visitors.
The gambling hotspot of Sault Ste. Marie now has slot machines available on the premises, but with special health and safety protocols in place. Some of the gambling devices are switched off in order to adhere to the rule of physical distancing.
United Steelworkers Local 8748 is the labor union that will benefit from renewed employment. Meanwhile, financial support has been ongoing. Of late, the city has received upwards of CA$31 million in casino cash.
