For the ninth consecutive year, Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway and Catholic Charities will team up to make the holiday season a little warmer and a little brighter for families in need. Empire City will host the “Christmas Spirit Toy and Coat Drive” Tuesday, November 10 through Wednesday, December 9. Empire City will be accepting donations every day throughout the month-long drive at the main promotions booth. Patrons are asked to bring new, unwrapped toys and/or new or gently used coats anytime during that period. The items will be delivered to Catholic Charities-supported agencies for the Christmas holidays.
