AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The Austintown Fire Department got a big donation.

Thanks to Hollywood Gaming and Racino they can buy some much-needed equipment.

Hollywood gave the department a $10,000 check Wednesday. They’re going to use it to purchase face masks and breathing equipment.

This was part of Hollywood Gaming’s MyHeroes program that supports veterans, active duty and first responders through donations from customers and the casino.

“So we’re actually able to use this money and make sure that each one of our firefighters has their own personalized CBA mask so it’s actually perfect timing is going to a great cause,” said Chief Andy Frost.

We received a statement from the Casino’s vice president and general manager Rob Swedinovich saying:

Penn Entertainment cares greatly about corporate responsibility and we are committed to caring for our people, our communities and our planet. This donation from guests and Hollywood Gaming is part of our MyHeroes commitment to donate to important civic causes like active-duty military, veterans and brave first responders like the Austintown Fire Department. We are appreciative of all of the hard work they do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“We’re just grateful that they did it for us and, again, they’ve been a great partner with anything we want to do with them so just it was it was our honor to be involved in it,” said Frost.
