02 Aug Gold River Casino School Supply Drive is another HUGE Success
3rd Annual School Supply Drive Raises over $9,785
Gold River Casino held its’ third annual School Supply Drive for Anadarko Public Schools. Every Wednesday in the month of July, Gold River Casino guests were encouraged to bring in school supplies to donate to Anadarko Public Schools. In exchange for their donation, Gold River Casino doubled their donation in free play, up to $50.00. “The feedback from our guests was overwhelming!” said Nancy Mace, Director of Marketing and Players Club at Gold River Casino. “Gold River Casino guests truly enjoyed being able to give back to the community.”
School Superintendent Jerry McCormick stated that the faculty at Anadarko Public Schools is grateful for the community’s donations and Gold River Casino’s help in collecting and delivering the supplies. The donations surpassed last year’s by over $3,000.00! The drive was held in July again this year to give the school principals time to sort through the supplies so they could distribute them to the students in their classrooms.
Backpacks, pencils, pens, glue, paper and more were collected over the 5 Wednesdays in July. “The excitement of the staff at the administration office was such a joy to witness.” stated Mace. “We were happy to accommodate the collection of the supplies and deliver them to the schools!”
