 BILOXI — Gulf Coast casinos
once again showed their charitable side with donations to the nearby
city of Moss Point,
which was hit by

in July. Properties
donated water,
which was especially
needed during the
summer heat wave,
and several gave money to assist the area’s residents.

to the United Way of Jackson County. Golden Nugget also donated pallets of bottled water delivered
by employees to the storm’s victims. Plus, employees continue
to raise money for the Employee Relief Fund that supports staff members in times of need.
