The Virginia Public Library recently received a $433.07 donation from Fortune Bay Resort Casino that will be used to enhance the library’s Summer Reading Program. The donation was made possible by customers who tossed coins into the large waterfalls like fountain at Fortune Bay.
Maintenance employees collected the coins and presented them to Fortune Bay Resort Casino employee Rob Alger, whose daughter, Delia, takes part in the program.
“We really appreciate this donation from Fortune Bay Resort Casino,” said Dawn Heisel, Virginia Children’s Services Librarian, who plays an instrumental role in the reading program. “This will really help our efforts in providing our local children with an even better Summer Reading Program.”
