Choctaw Casinos announces a $100,000 donation to the North Texas Region of the
American Red Cross to assist people in North Texas affected by the recent
tornadoes. Located north of the impacted areas, Choctaw Casinos is owned and
operated by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma—the third largest Indian Tribe in the
United States—made the news public today.
"The perseverance of the families and the individuals impacted by the tornadoes
in North Texas is admirable," said Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Chief Gary Batton.
"Choctaw Nation is rooted in a legacy of giving back and we hope that our
donation to the American Red Cross will provide additional relief to our
neighbors in the impacted communities."
According to the American Red Cross the funds will directly support people
living in Ellis, Dallas, Collin and Rockwall counties and will help fund
essential services such as shelter operations, distribution of clean-up supplies
such as shovels, rakes, tarps, daily meals and snacks and casework services.
"The Red Cross is grateful to partners like Choctaw Casinos for providing our
organization with the means to make disaster relief possible," said John Cullins,
board chair, American Red Cross North Texas Region. "Many North Texans have
experienced a devastating blow from Mother Nature. Together, the Red Cross and
Choctaw Casinos will ensure that they get the support they need in the days,
weeks and months ahead."
