Argosy Casino and Riverside F/PAL's "Giving From The Heart" Coat Drive Warms Local Children

Riverside, Missouri, January 23, 2014 – On January 28th & 29th, donated coats and jackets from the Giving From The Heart Coat Drive will be distributed through the Riverside Fire/Police Athletic League to local children at the Riverside Community Center. Argosy Casino Hotel & Spa partnered with Riverside F/PAL to collect coats during this past December. The drive was extremely successful.

This coat drive is just another example Argosy Casino and the Riverside Public Safety teams’ efforts to assist the community they are a part of. “We are so excited at the success of this project and can’t wait to see all the smiling faces as the children get to ‘shop’ for their coats on the distribution days”, said Tina Hass of the Riverside Police Department. Natalie Pittman, Marketing Coordinator at Argosy agreed, “This drive has been so impactful to the local community. There are so many caring citizens in Riverside and the surrounding areas, as shown with the incredible success of this drive”.

We would like to thank the community for their overwhelming support in the endeavor. Many needy families will benefit from this heartfelt gift.
