(Wheeling, WV – December 14, 2018) After a two-week toy drive, Wheeling Island Hotel Casino Racetrack is concluding their fundraising efforts with a toy and monetary donation to the Salvation Army.
Each year, Wheeling Island creates a holiday themed event to benefit the Salvation Army. This year, the annual ‘Christmas Toy Drive’ began on December 1st and has been running for the past two weeks. The drive prompted guests to make a toy donation or cash donation for at least $20.00 to receive a pull tab for a chance to win $1,000.
The Salvation Army will disperse the presents and donations to hundreds of families throughout the Ohio Valley to brighten the holidays for those in need.  
Carrie Scanlon, Senior Director of Marketing, will be on-hand for the toy donation on Friday, December 14th and is humbled to be a part of an organization whose guests are dedicated in helping the property give back to the local community,  “We are very appreciative that our guests participate in initiatives dedicated to giving back to the local community” Scanlon said, “These toys and donations are going to a wonderful organization that will help brighten the holidays for families and children in need throughout the Ohio Valley.”
