LAWTON, Okla., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The results are in and they are impressive. Throughout last year, the Oklahoma casinos operated by Comanche Nation Entertainment (CNE) ran several drives aimed at helping children and underprivileged families in Oklahoma. Comanche Nation Casino, Comanche Red River Hotel Casino, Comanche Spur Casino and Comanche Star Casino managed and promoted a back to school drive, a canned food drive and a toy drive among others.
Just as in years past, thoughtful customers of the Comanche's casinos were encouraged to bring school supplies, canned food and toys to the casinos during certain times of the year for donation to area schools, shelters and families. In exchange, they receive twice the money spent on the items in the form of Comanche Credit, up to $50 in credit.
The Comanche Nation and Comanche Nation Entertainment strongly believe in a corporate responsibility to pursue charitable endeavors. Not only is this value a part of the tribe's culture, but it is part of the corporate culture at the casinos. According to CNE's new CEO Michael Starr, "What we do isn't special, it's just responsible. We're Oklahomans and we take care of our fellow Oklahomans."
Back to School Bash Results
For the four Oklahoma casinos, 11,436 supplies (smaller items were counted by packages) were donated to schools and customers received $141,306 in Comanche Credit.
#LiveitComanche Canned Food Drive Results
The total for the canned food drive was 4,235 cans donated which resulted in a giveaway of $10,321 in Comanche Credit.
Season of Giving Holiday Toy Drive Results
3,971 new toys were donated during the holiday toy drive put together by Comanche Nation Entertainment. As a thank you to its customers, $32,896 in Comanche Credit was given away.
