Commerce Casino employs 2,600 people in the region and generates more than $15 million to the local tax base. A large part of that commitment has been to give back to the community by investing in its youth, supporting regional programs that benefit low-income families and fostering educational opportunities for young people in Commerce and the surrounding communities. Commerce Casino strives to be a good neighbor and to help improve the quality of life for those people who live in the Casinoâ€™s area of influenceâ€"cities that include Commerce, Montebello, Bell Gardens and Downey, among others.
The programs that the Casino supports include everything from a college scholarship program for the regionâ€™s young scholars to a childrenâ€™s bicycle safety fair staged by the City of Commerce each summer. On an ongoing basis, it provides funding to two highly regarded regional youth organizations. Commerce Casino is also a very active participant on the Commerce Industrial Council, the cityâ€™s equivalent of a chamber of commerce, which enhances the relationship between city government and the business community. One of the Casinoâ€™s most anticipated activities each year is its sponsorship of the City of Commerceâ€™s annual Holiday Party for 50 children from low-income homes. – less–ZoomInfo
