• $2M Added to COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund
2020 has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging years in history. Like all businesses around the world, we continue to deal with issues that we never could have anticipated or imagined. All of this has made me even more appreciative of who we are as a company and the family unit we have created at Penn. As we enter this holiday season, I hope all of us will take some time to reflect on what we have accomplished, and more importantly what new opportunities lie ahead.
Our hearts go out to all those affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and we applaud and are amazed every day by the bravery of our health care workers, first responders and essential personnel on the front lines of this battle. We are proud of the small part we’re doing to support their ongoing efforts. In addition to donating more than 45 tons of perishable food items, we have donated thousands of masks, surgical gloves and hand sanitizer to local hospitals. We also provided free hotel rooms to first responders and opened up our parking lots to serve as COVID-19 testing sites and food distribution centers.
We are excited and grateful to have all but two of our properties open on a limited basis across the country, with the health and well-being of our team members and customers remaining as our paramount concern.

Penn National Gaming, on behalf of its 26,000 team members, is proud to operate in diverse communities throughout America.
We stand united against hate, racism, violence and intolerance of any sort, and salute all the peaceful warriors and protesters on the front lines of social injustice making their voices heard.
