Once again, three hundred and sixty families who struggle with hunger in the tri-state area were able to enjoy a fabulous Thanksgiving meal this year thanks to the community and the very generous players at Aquarius Casino Resort.
Local food banks and agencies that distribute food to those less fortunate were able to hand out three hundred and sixty boxes of Thanksgiving meals as part of Aquarius’ third annual “Feed A Family” program. One box of holiday food items, which is large enough to feed a family of four, contains traditional holiday favorites like turkey, potatoes, stuffing, gravy, vegetables, cranberries, rolls, pie, and whipped cream.
Aquarius ace | PLAY™ card members are able to contribute points to the program, which are normally redeemed for comps, cash or free play, and for every 12,000 ace | PLAY points contributed, Aquarius donates a box of food.
“Our players continue to impress me with their true generosity and willingness to lend a hand to those who need a little extra help during the holidays,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General Manager Sean Hammond. “Thanks to our players’ support and the hard work of our team members, I really believe we will reach our goal and help feed more than 1,000 families this holiday season.”
The Thanksgiving meals were donated to Kingman Food Bank in Kingman, AZ; Golden Valley Food Bank in Golden Valley, AZ; Praise Chapel in Bullhead City, AZ; Colorado River Food Bank in Laughlin, NV; Cornerstone Mission Project in Kingman, AZ; The Women’s Club in Needles, CA; Interagency Council Community Food Bank in Lake Havasu City, AZ; and Caring Hearts in Bullhead City, AZ.
“On behalf of the Interagency Council’s Community Food Bank, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to your staff and patrons for your donations,” said Interagency Council Community Food Bank President and CEO Michael Eigenbrodt. “The Aquarius Casino Resort has consistently shown how much you care about your community. The impact your gift has on the families that receive it is beyond words.”
Aquarius Casino Resort’s third annual “Feed A Family” program will continue until Friday, December 19, 2014 in order to provide a Christmas meal to families in need. For every 12,000 ace | PLAY points donated, Aquarius will donate a box of holiday items for a Christmas meal to a local agency that distributes food.
