Harrah’s Provides Grant to United Way

Today, Harrah’s Gulf Coast proudly presented a $25,000 check to United Way of South Mississippi. The contributions to help further the organization’s mission were raised by Harrah’s Gulf Coast team members through various fundraising activities.
Ten thousand dollars of today’s donation will benefit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a program that provides thousands of young children in South Mississippi with a free book each month. United Way of South Mississippi CEO Cynthia Walker said, “So this exact check is going to be able to help us add 100 children, move them from the waiting list into active reception of these books. It is a huge thing because it will carry them until they turn age five and they get those books each month free.”
The books provided by the Dolly Parton Imagination Library help the program make significant progress each year by improving readership among children.
