Casinos take advantage of the cuteness with a little change on the winnings

“It all adds up. It’s amazing!” – Elky Reynolds

Two northern Michigan casinos and their guests make a difference pennies at a time.

It’s called the “Cash In on Kindness” program, and it collects spare currency from winnings at Turtle Creek and Leelanau Sands casinos. The idea is to turn your monthly change in earnings into a donation to another northern Michigan nonprofit.

Cash in casinosAnd in the past two months, donations have raised more than $ 9,000. Tuesday’s checks went to the Cherryland Humane Society for $ 4,774 and to FLOW – “For the Love of Water” for $ 4,876.

Any casino guest can make a contribution. These weird amounts that you get when you cash out – whether it’s 11 cents here, sixty cents there, it all adds up. Elky Reynolds, promotions manager for Leelanau Sands & Turtle Creek, says, “Most people go out with them and forget them in their purses or pockets. Drop them right here instead of taking them out and throwing them away.

Other groups that have been the recipients of the collection include the Groundwork Center, the American Heart Association, and Toys for Tots. For the month of May, they are collecting for veterans in crisis.
