Employees of Harrah’s Metropolis Casino and Hotel recently presented Happy Hearts Senior Center in Metropolis with a donation of $1,240. The contribution was accumulated from Jeans Days.
“It’s a win/win for both the employees and Happy Hearts,” said Chad Lewis, advertising and public relations supervisor. “Employees always look forward to and partake in our Jeans Days fundraisers. It’s a pretty concept. Each employee can wear jeans to work on designated days each month by paying $5 each time, if they choose.”
Happy Hearts offers a safe and social setting along with hot meals, special activities and special assistance to aging adults. They are also home to the Meals on Wheels program delivering numerous meals each day.
The center fully reopened on July 1 after being closed almost 16 months due to COVID. It is open from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. Lunch is a donation of $3 for ages 60 and older or $5.75 for ages younger than 60.
