LAUGHLIN, NV – November 12, 2015 – Every September for the past five years, Aquarius Casino Resort employees have donated and collected non-perishable food items to benefit local families and children who struggle with hunger every day.
This worthy philanthropic tradition and friendly competition between Aquarius departments for the entire month of September continues to inspire team members to give back to their community and to feel great about giving to those who are less fortunate.
“Our team members continue to unselfishly step up to make sure the families in our community are taken care of during the holidays and throughout the year. I couldn’t be more proud of them for their efforts,” said Aquarius Casino Resort General manager Sean Hammond.
Aquarius team members collected a total of 8,883 non-perishable food items such as canned soup, boxed cereal and more, weighing a total of 5,140 pounds. Food items were then donated to William G. Bennett Elementary School in Laughlin, NV; Golden Valley Food Bank in Golden Valley, AZ; and Praise Chapel Food for Families in Bullhead City, AZ.
“John Quincy Adams once said, "If your actions inspire others to dream more, do more and become more, you are a leader."” quoted Principal Estes “On behalf of the faculty, staff, students and families of the William G. Bennett Elementary School, I want to express our gratitude and appreciation to the leadership team and employees of the Aquarius Resort Casino. As a result of your continuous support, extra efforts, hard work and dedication to our school, we are able to inspire every student to dream more, do more and gain the skills needed to become tomorrow's next great leaders!”
Aquarius’ Casino Operations department took first place for the fifth year in a row by collecting 3,758 items. Second place went to G&A with 2,743 items; Food and Beverage took third place with 972 items; fourth place was Marketing with 863 items and the Hotel division collected 547 items, which put them in fifth place in the competition.
“Food for Families would like to say Thank You very much for the food drive that the Aquarius held for us. I would say it was perfect timing because we were out of vegetables and a few other things and the food that the Aquarius provided for us was just perfect!” said Sheria with Praise Chapel. “Food for Families will always be in your debt for all the wonderful things that the Aquarius does for us.”
