Kiowa Casino Cash for Food Drive presents check to local food banks

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX / KJTL) – As the holiday season approaches, Kiowa Casino and Hotel will help those in need with money raised in their second annual food fundraiser.

When the check was handed over on Tuesday, November 16, Kiowa Casino handed over a check for a total amount of $ 13,361.28.

The casino hosted a cash-only drive from November 8 to 12, where guests who donated a minimum of five dollars could spin the virtual wheel to win cash prizes of up to $ 200.

Proceeds from this campaign will benefit the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank, Lawton Food Bank, Kiowa Tribe and other nonprofits in the area.

Kiowa Casino Properties COO Jon Peters recognizes how important this dynamic is, especially in the past two years that many have endured.

“The holidays can be a difficult time for many people, especially after the hardships we have all endured over the past two years. With our continuous cash-only approach, we’re making sure our families are looked after, both inside our walls and at dining tables across countries, ”Peters said in a press release.

For over thirteen years, Kiowa Casino Properties has distributed over 40,000 pounds of food each year through its annual canned food drive.

“By removing the need to bring physical goods, this backbone of our people-focused food drive gives customers even more opportunities to give back and earn. This is the kind of creative dedication the community can continue to count on from Kiowa Casinos, ”Peters said in a press release.
