It will be a great Christmas for a lot of needy families this year thanks to some very generous employees of a Coast casino.
A number of people who work at Beau Rivage were a part of the casino's first Adopt A Family program. Employees bought hundreds of gifts, ranging from dolls to bicycles. The gifts will go to residents of Hancock County's Hope Haven, as well as families whose names were provided to casino employees by the Department of Human Services.
Beau Rivage workers also adopted a family of eight that has been homeless until recently. Employees today gave that family a refrigerator, microwave and furniture.
