Mesa Group For Vulnerable Children Receives Donation

Gila River Hotels & Casinos gives more than $25,000 to Child Crisis Arizona

Posted

A Mesa-based organization dedicated to helping the community’s most vulnerable children and families scored a major windfall from an area casino.

Gila River Hotels & Casinos presented Child Crisis Arizona with almost $25,400. The money will help to serve up to 200 children each night in the organization’s Emergency Children’s Placement Services, which includes a foster care program, shelter and group home. 

The funds were part of $76,000 in unclaimed jackpots that the casino gives to nonprofits each year. The money was presented during Gila River Cares Week of Giving. A committee from the casino chose the recipients.

“Week of Giving represents our commitment to supporting programs that help meet the needs of the community and make a difference in our state,” said Kenneth Manuel, CEO of Gila River Hotels & Casinos. “We are grateful that we were able to turn our annual celebration into a week of giving this year and continue to provide year-round support to nonprofits through our Gila River Cares program.”
