Food Donation Set at Downtown Casino in Buffalo, New York
As Buffalo and Western New York continue to work their way through the grieving and recovery process of the events of May 14th, a local Buffalo casino is stepping up to assist its neighbors whose community was attacked.
Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino will be hosting a donation drive this Wednesday, May 25 from 11 am to 7 pm. They are asking the public to drop off donations of the following:
- Non-perishable food items
- Hygiene products
- Infant and child care products
You can drop off the above items at the Seneca Niagara Casino located at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Perry Street in downtown Buffalo.
Seneca Gaming Corporation President & CEO Kevin Nephew said via a press release:
We are one community, and when one of us hurts, we all hurt...I'm sure the generous spirit of Western New York will continue to shine through these dark times as we lift up and support our neighbors in their time of need.
Seneca Gaming Cooperation has partnered with FeedMore WNY to organize all of the donated items, and ensure they are distributed in neighborhoods that have been the most impacted by the shooting.
In addition to the donations collected on Wednesday, Seneca Gaming Corporation will be organizing donation efforts across its three locations; Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, and Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino, for its more than 3,000 employees.
All of the items that are donated by the company's employees will also be delivered to FeedMore WNY for distribution.
