Casino gives thousands for International Women's Day

Today is International Women’s Day, celebrating the ‘fairer sex,’ and first established in 1909, and celebrated around the world. Today, Caesar’s Windsor, a hotel and casino in Windsor, Ontario, has donated $10,000 to two local women’s organizations, with the aim of helping area Baby Boomers and seniors, especially immigrants, learn valuable skills so they can become gainfully employed, as reported recently in the Windsor Star newspaper.

The two organizations benefitting are the Women's Enterprise Skills Training of Windsor Inc (WEST)., as well as Windsor Women Working With Immigrant Women.

“We try and give the message to women that they can come to Canada, it's an area of opportunity and they can do what they want to do,” Sheila Barker, a member of WEST’s board of directors, told the news source.

Gale Carter Moore from the Windsor Women Working With Immigrant Women organization told the media outlet that the money they will receive from Caesar’s Windsor will make a big difference to older female immigrants to Canada, who often have trouble finding work in Canada, and that the new money will help educate them and provide them with employment opportunities.

When that happens, these women will also be able to better afford the housing they may wantand need later, including assisted living and Alzheimer’s Care communities.
