OK Casinos Organize Food Drive for Flood Relief
July 09, 2015
The Comanche Nation tribe puts ideals into action every day. The tribe believes
businesses have a deep responsibility to the communities in which they reside.
To live this belief, the Oklahoma casinos run by Comanche Nation Entertainment,
formerly Comanche Nation Casinos, organize charity and community help programs
on an ongoing basis. Recently completed was the "Comanche Food for Thought
Canned Food Drive," which ran from June 4, 2015 to June 30, 2015.
The food drive was organized to help victims of the Oklahoma floods that claimed
lives, damaged property and left many without housing in late May and early June
of 2015. Comanche Nation Entertainment, along with government agencies and other
businesses, wasted no time in making arrangements to help as they could. While
Comanche Spur Casino closed temporarily for cleanup, Comanche Nation Casino and
Comanche Red River Hotel Casino rallied their customers through social media and
website announcements encouraging the donation of canned goods for flood
victims. As a thank you, the casinos offered free Comanche Credit in exchange
for canned food. The support was incredible and resulted in the collection of
66,591 cans of food which were distributed to Oklahomans impacted by flooding.
"I'm proud of the dedication our staff members and customers clearly have to
helping our neighborhood in a crisis. It was heartwarming to see so many join
together to help," remarked Chris Tipton, Director of Marketing for Comanche
