Coushatta Casino Resort Associates Make Donations to “Gaming Gives Back” Food Drive
Collaborative Fundraising Effort of Four Area Casinos: Coushatta Casino Resort, Delta Downs, L’Auberge du Lac, and Isle of Capri
December 14, 2012
Kinder, LA—As a community service, associates of Coushatta Casino Resort donated non-perishable food items in “Gaming Gives Back,” a collaborative fundraising effort between four Southwest Louisiana casinos. Donations from participating casinos were combined, then split equally, with each individual casino choosing the organization(s) to receive its share of the food items. Representatives from all casinos formed a caravan and delivered the food to designated organizations on December 7, 2012. Coushatta Casino Resort’s share benefited St. Philip Neri Catholic Church food bank and Reeves Hope Center Mission. In total, over 13,000 pounds of food were distributed to six charitable organizations and food banks.
“This was a partnership effort by the four area casinos to help needy families and homeless shelters during these trying times around the Christmas holidays,” stated Phil Ziegler, Director of Marketing. “Our associates here at Coushatta Casino Resort really pitched in together to fill two large containers in less then a month. They did an outstanding job for their efforts.”
