LAWTON, Okla., Oct. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the success of the flood relief drive last June, the Comanche Nation Entertainment Oklahoma casinos wasted no time in tackling their next charity project, a school supplies drive helping students of local schools. The drive was festively titled the "Back to School Bash." It ran the entire month of July 2015 and the impact was substantial.
Customers of four Comanche casinos, Comanche Nation Casino, Comanche Red River Hotel Casino, Comanche Spur Casino and Comanche Star Casino, brought school supplies into their casino of choice in exchange for a compelling prize -- free Comanche Credit. The better the donation, the more gaming credit the contributor received, up to $50 in Comanche Credit. The supplies donated ranged from name brand backpacks to packs of erasers. The most common items donated were pocket folders, spiral notebooks, composition binders, backpacks, crayons and pencils.
Back to School Bash Results
The results are in. A combined total of 1,290 school supply items (smaller items were counted by packages) were donated to local Oklahoma schools by Comanche Nation Entertainment with a value of approximately $12,000.
CNE is committed to helping the residents of Oklahoma in any way needed, living a deep-seated Comanche value, responsibility to the community. Chas Robbins, CEO of Comanche Nation Entertainment remarked, "We're here to help Oklahomans. It's what we expect of ourselves and we love it."
Upcoming Charity Drive: Warming up the Holidays Coat Drive
