The Caesars Foundation announced Tuesday a $25,000 donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief response in Louisiana.

The gift will provide aid, shelter, food, comfort kits, emotional support and health services, to the more than 75,000 Louisianans affected by the massive flooding brought on by record rainfall.

The Caesars Foundation’s central goal is to nurture organizations and programs in the communities where Caesars group operates making the community an even better place to live and work.

Part of Caesars group, Harrah’s New Orleans and Harrah’s Gulf Coast quickly mobilized volunteers to support flood disaster relief efforts on the Gulf Coast. After realizing the magnitude of damage, Caesars’ property representatives wanted to do even more and contacted the Caesars Foundation.
