LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Caesars Entertainment says its $3.1 million in donations to local charities was made possible by funds from its paid parking.

The company says the money went to nine organizations that included the Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada and St. Jude's Ranch for Children.

And the majority of the funds went to Vegas-area groups to provide food and shelter for those in need.

"The past year has presented incredible challenges to all of us. We are keenly aware that, as we move forward, we are still moving uphill. And that hill can be much steeper for our vulnerable community members," said Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "Our company is committed to social-economic equity in every community in which we operate. All of us at Caesars Entertainment are grateful to support organizations committed to lifting up and propelling forward those who have been most profoundly impacted by this trying year."
