Caesars Cares Fund to support team members who suffer unanticipated hardships during property closures. Funding to consist of donations by Caesars board members and executives. Caesars Foundation giving will be oriented to support community needs during the coronavirus public health emergency.
Caesars Entertainment announced that an assistance fund has been established for purposes of supporting team members at the Company’s properties across the U.S. who suffer unanticipated hardships, including during the closure of Caesars properties as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency. The Company also announced that donations made by Caesars Foundation will support charities addressing COVID-19 issues in the communities where Caesars operates. The Foundation’s initiatives will build on the Company’s ongoing efforts to address COVID-19-related needs in these communities. The Company has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to local food banks as well as cleaning supplies and thousands of personal protective equipment items to first responders and medical facilities battling the coronavirus, and recently contributed cots and hundreds of bed linens, pillows and hygiene kits to various homeless shelters and care facilities.
The employee assistance fund, called “Caesars Cares,” will be composed of contributions during the property closures in the form of donations from Caesars board of directors and Caesars executives. Caesars Cares will be administered by Lifeboat, Inc, a Louisiana-based public charity, and will be managed and overseen by an independent board of directors that includes a Caesars representative. The independent board will evaluate applications for assistance to help Caesars team members based on unusual hardships arising from the COVID-19 public health emergency.
“Company support, in the forms of extended pay, paid time off and uninterrupted, company-paid medical benefits through the earlier of employees’ return to work and June 30, 2020 for employees enrolled in company-sponsored health plans, as well as government assistance, will be a financial bridge for most of our furloughed employees until they return to work. However, some team members at our U.S. properties may suffer other unexpected setbacks that require additional help,” said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “Caesars culture has always been based on caring for our people and our communities. Caesars Cares will be available to our work force nationwide, and Caesars Foundation will support local charities engaged in fighting this public health emergency. These initiatives reinforce this caring tradition and are certainly appropriate in these challenging circumstances,” Rodio added.

A spokesperson from NJ Online Casinos said, “Considering all the online casinos New Jersey has to offer, it’s not a surprise that people from other states are willing to travel to NJ to play. NJ casino online experience is something pretty unique. There are so many online NJ casino rooms with different characteristics that it is almost impossible to rank them. Thanks to the huge number of online casinos, the number of casino games and online slots NJ has to offer is simply incredible.”
As well as its guidance on the most lucrative or immersive online casino to join in New Jersey, NJ Online Casinos also has a useful section on its website that is devoted to showing visitors the warning signs for non-reputable gambling sites and how to easily spot casinos that do not have a license to operate in New Jersey.
