When Rivers Casino opened its doors, we committed ourselves to being a great community partner. Our team strives to fulfill this promise everyday. Each year, Rivers Casino donates thousands of volunteer hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars that help to make Chicagoland a better place to live and work. We know that when our community flourishes, we all succeed.
Flags for Vets
Dress for Success
Des Plaines Theater
Rivers Casino is proud to support the purchase and renovation of the historic downtown Des Plaines Theater. “Rivers is committed to investing in the community and we appreciated the opportunity to help the city bring this cultural amenity back to life as part of its plan to rejuvenate the downtown area. We look forward to memorable performances in this beautiful and historic venue in the years ahead,” said Rivers Casino Senior Vice President and General Manager, Corey Wise.
FRISBIE SENIOR CENTER
Frisbie Senior Center serves active adults through intellectually enriching, socially engaging, and physically energizing programs and volunteer opportunities. With the support of Rivers Casino, Frisbie Senior Center will continue to develop and expand its Lifelong Learning Initiative. The multi-dimensional Lifelong Learning Initiative supports older adults in the areas of intuitive learning and culture immersion; fitness and wellness; safety and security; and intergenerational bridge building.
DES PLAINES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
For the third year in a row, Rivers Casino is proud to support The Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Veterans Back-to-Work Boot Camp. Forty veterans from around the Chicago area are successfully pursuing civilian careers, largely thanks to their participation in this innovative back-to-work boot camp program. The 10-week program provides military veterans with individual mentoring, career exploration, computer and social media skills, resume writing, interviewing readiness, company tours and more.
Rivers Casino is excited to partner with Maryville’s Jen School and the organic garden that serves as an extended classroom. The herbs and vegetables from the organic garden will be harvested for use by the chefs at Rivers Casino. The hands-on learning experiences that the organic garden provides enhance the specialized educational and vocational services provided to students with learning disabilities and prepares them for a successful transition into their communities as productive adults.
SCIENCE & ARTS ACADEMY
Science & Arts Academy is an independent, non-denominational, co-educational, not-for-profit day school for gifted students in Junior Kindergarten through eighth grade. Drawing students from over 50 different Chicagoland communities, Science & Arts Academy’s supportive community encourages students to embrace their potential and cultivates their academic abilities, creative talents, and emotional growth. Rivers Casino’s donation will support need-based student scholarships for tuition and other school related expenses.
