The Indian Tribe that owns and operates the recently rebranded Yaamava’ Resort & Casino has made the donation to Three Square in Southern Nevada.
US.- The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians (SMBMI) has donated $100,000 to the Las Vegas non-profit, Three Square Food Bank.
The Indian Tribe owns and operates the recently rebranded Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel in San Bernardino County, Southern California. The donation will provide over 300,000 meals to people who are being impacted by food insecurity in Southern Nevada.
Three Square President and CEO, Brian Burton said: “Food insecurity remains above pre-pandemic levels — nearly 364,000 Southern Nevadans, or one in six, don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
“This incredible support from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians is life-changing for our many neighbours in need. Words will never convey how grateful we are to the Tribe for joining us in the fight against hunger.”
Ken Ramirez, SMBMI Chairman added: “It is important to our Tribe that we work to impact and change the lives of those who are in need and facing economic challenges.
“Our Tribe is proud of the community involvement and support we have provided in Southern California and across Indian country, and we are humbled and honoured to continue this tradition of giving here in Las Vegas.”
