The Cordish Companies and Live Casino & Hotel Maryland completed 24 consecutive hours of community service June 17 to celebrate its 10th anniversary in a way that is meaningful to the company and its team members.
Through a partnership with United Way of Central Maryland, Live Casino & Hotel Maryland effectively touched more than 10,000 lives through volunteer, donation and acts of service in community organizations throughout the surrounding counties. This effort would not have been achieved without the gracious support of Live Casino & Hotel’s vendors, who supported the initiative by donating supplies and tools that allowed the Team Members to meet community needs.
These vendors included Brylex, Hi Touch, Level Green Landscaping, S. Freedman, Sysco Foods, The Aaron Group, Timothy Handy, Universal Hotel & Supply and US Foods.
Live Casino & Hotel Maryland’s 24-hours in the community began with Team Members assembling soldier welcome home kits, writing thank-you notes to veterans, making stress kits for soldiers, sorting book donations and coloring bookmarks at the casino’s property in Hanover. Beginning first thing the following morning, Team Members loaded materials into a truck and boarded the United Way bus to travel to areas of need in the neighboring counties.
The program effectively affected 10,000 community members, five community organizations, added to the $3.6 million in donations already provided to the Baltimore/DC region over the past 10 years and added to the $185 million in Anne Arundel County Community Grants provided over the past 10 years.
Live Team Members and United Way of Central Maryland volunteers began at a Community Revitalization project in Anne Arundel County where they cleaned up space for a community recreation area; stocked a toiletry pantry and led playground maintenance, including installing a new fence at Episcopal Housing in Baltimore County, organized bingo for seniors and organized closet space at the Bain Center in Howard County, installed shelving and organized a trailer with baby items at Kingdom Kare in Anne Arundel County and distributed welcome home kits to families of veterans at Ft. Meade in Anne Arundel County.
