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.
