During to the Toy Drop, more than 300 gifts were given to the domestic violence assistance service, Shelter From the Storm

COACHELLA VALLEY, CALIF. (Dec. 13, 2023) – This holiday season, Agua Caliente Casinos are upholding the tradition of The Angel Tree Shelter From the Storm toy drop. The annual charity drive is conducted through the Agua Cares program, allowing Agua Caliente team members to support the local community. On Wednesday, Dec. 13, more than 300 gifts were delivered by Agua Caliente team members to Shelter From the Storm’s offices in the Coachella Valley.

Each Angel Tree client was granted three to four wishes and with the help of the casinos’ supportive staff across all three properties, hundreds of holiday wishes will be turned into a reality on Christmas morning.
“We are humbled and honored to continue to be the beneficiary charity of the Aqua Caliente Cares holiday gift drive/Angel Tree,” said Angelina Coe, Executive Director of Shelter From the Storm. “Over the past 15 years they have provided over 3,000 gifts to survivors of domestic violence and their children. Thank you just does not seem sufficient. It truly makes the holidays merry and bright for those facing some of their darkest times.”

Each year, Agua Cares creates a spirit of giving back to the community and provides an opportunity for the nearly 3,000 team members at Agua Caliente Casinos to support Shelter From the Storm, the Coachella Valley’s only comprehensive domestic victim assistance service.

“Our team at Agua Caliente realizes the significance of the Angel Tree Toy Drop, and each year they give so much to help families in need,” said Saverio Scheri, Chief Operating Officer at Agua Caliente Casinos. “This is such an important cause year-round, but especially during the holiday season. The Agua Caliente family of team members have gifted toys, clothing, and more to local families in support of our community.”

Every holiday season, team members from a variety of departments come together to deliver hundreds of gifts such as toys, home appliances, cooking essentials, and other necessities for the families in need. Many of the families and children in need do not expect “Santa” to find them and deliver presents, making it all the more heartwarming when they wake up and see the exact gift they asked for.

“The partnership we have established with Shelter from the Storm over the past 15 years, extends the possibility of a bright future and hope for their clients,” said Robin Stone, VP of Human Resources at Agua Caliente Casinos.
Agua Caliente Casino plans on continuing its partnership with Shelter From the Storm indefinitely and looks forward to making more wishes come true for years to come.
