"Those bringing a donation will will receive $1 in free SlotPlay"- The Meadows
As part of the Meadows Racetrack & Casino's Home & Craft Festival, The Greater Washington County Food Bank (GWCFB) is asking area residents to come out and drop off canned goods at The Meadows Casino during Memorial Day weekend.
Those bringing a donation will receive $1 in Free SlotPlay for each one pound of canned food donated up to $10.
Collection times are as follows:
• 6-9 p.m. May 23
• 11 a.m.-8 p.m. May 24
• 11 a.m.-7 p.m. May 25
GWCFB has seen a nearly 100% increase in the number of registered clients over the past 5 years. This growing need is served though a service network of 38 pantry sites throughout the county - all which operated by volunteers. Last year the GWCFB distributed approximately 1.8 million pounds of food to our registered clients.
