Harrah's helps Haywood County's Habitat for Humanity

Nov 13, 2012

Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort's HERO (Harrah's Employee's Reaching Out) program enlisted volunteers to help Haywood County's Habitat for Humanity put the finishing touches on a home for a local family.

Resort workers helped with finishing details such as painting, caulking and cleaning to have the home ready for the opening ceremony when the recipient receives ownership

of the home.

“It was very rewarding knowing that the Habitat staff of volunteers really appreciated our contribution as the house would not have been ready for the opening ceremony without our assistance,” said Lumpy Lambert, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort’s assistant general manager. “Our team of HERO volunteers were amazing and pitched in to conquer the tasks assigned without hesitation and did an excellent job.”

Haywood Habitat for Humanity builds affordable housing for its community and committed to helping needy families realize their dream of home ownership. Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort and its employees are proud to continue volunteering to

make a difference in partnership with Haywood Habitat for Humanity.
