Greektown Casino-Hotel Donates Over 3,000 Books To Detroit Students

DETROIT (WWJ) – Greektown Casino-Hotel donated more than 3,000 books to students at the Marcus Garvey Academy and Rose-Hill Academy.

The books, equally distributed between the two schools, were collected through the casino’s Turning the Page on Illiteracy book drive. Books were donated by casino guests, employees and local businesses. The book drive is one of several ongoing community initiatives sponsored by the casino.

Greektown executives and team members personally delivered the books to the schools. Greektown staff stuffed shelves of the schools’ libraries with books and passed out Halloween-themed bookmarks to students.

Greektown plans to implement many other programs under the Turning the Page on Illiteracy umbrella, including mentorship and school adoption efforts.

    Why they are donating to the school, have they not talked to the students who feel their rights have been violated, by being searched to see if they went to the candy store, you need to read the article in the Detroit Native Sun.

      Whoever wrote this: probably the publisher of that article. Thank you Greektown Casino. My children love their books andwhile at Garvey, help them search students to make sure my children are safe while at school.
