Resorts World Employees Come Together to Help Community Members with Winter Coat Drive

Monticello, NY and Queens, NY – Resorts World employees throughout the state stepped up this winter to donate coats to help their communities. Resorts World Catskills (RWC) worked with various United Way locations around the Hudson Valley, while Resorts World New York City (RWNYC) partnered with Sisterhood of Destiny, a non-profit serving the community in Jamaica, Queens, throughout the month of January, holding coat drives in both locations.

“During these cold and grey winter months, our employees answered the call to step in and help brighten the day for families and individuals in need,” said Michelle Stoddart, Vice President of Community Development, Resorts World New York City. “We are grateful to them for making it possible to assist those who might be struggling.”

The coats collected from RWNYC will be distributed to shelters in Southeast Queens, while the coats donated by RWC employees will go to the Hudson Valley’s most vulnerable populations.

“When companies such as Resorts World Catskills want to make a difference in Dutchess and Orange counties, we’re more than happy to step in and help them achieve those goals,” said Rebecca Lull, Director of Community Impact, United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region. “By working together, we can make an impact in these community members’ lives and ensure they don’t go without.”

“We’re thankful to Resorts World and their employees for their generosity,” said Julian Dawson, Chief Professional Officer, United Way of Sullivan County. “Their support is what helps us to care for the community and provide them with resources that can make a big difference.”

“When there is a need within our communities, we are grateful for dedicated businesses such as Resorts World New York City,” said Lisa Trotman, Founder, Sisterhood of Destiny. “We thank them for donating over 100 winter coats for families in need.”
