Casino Sponsors Annual Coat Drive

MARKSVILLE, La. - Paragon Casino Resort has announced dates for its 2013 fall season annual Coats for Kids Drive. The drive will begin Tuesday, October 1, and end Friday, November 1. Paragon will collect new or slightly worn coats and jackets of any color and size, with buttons or zippers. Donations may be dropped off at Tour & Travel, located near the parking garage entrance, or at the Paragon Preferred Players Club, located near Roxy's Diner.

"It's important to us to give back to our community," said Acting General Manager, Tonya Tarrant. "During the upcoming holiday season, our goal is to provide warm coats to as many families as possible."

The coats will be distributed to needy families in the parish by the Avoyelles Council on Aging. The Council will announce the date of distribution. Paragon has helped collect more than 3,000 coats since it started participating in the drive about ten years ago.
