Maverick Gaming carried out actions through their 19 Washington area properties this week under the terms of a new partnership with 30 charities as it sought to feed more than 4,000 families and 16,000 people on holiday meals.
The area casino owner and operator emphasises that the team has worked “non-stop” to ensure that for the 4,000 families, holiday season is just a little happier by supplying the vulnerable with a full meal.
Maverick Gaming owner Eric Persson: explained: “The truth is that the communities we serve support us all year, providing these meals to the people in our communities who need them the most is the least we can do.
“By partnering with local charities and community beacons we are able to help make a direct impact and help those who need it most. We’d like to thank all of the community sources who helped us identify those who need help the most, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Burien, the many elementary schools who helped us, Gold Creek Church, Kennewick Lions Club, Catholic Community Services, YMCA Mukileteo and many others. Without their assistance our Maverick family couldn’t have provided this service.”
The holiday meals were delivered to each Maverick property on the 23rd December, between three and seven pm, with each local partner within five miles of each Maverick property.
“I’m so proud of our team making a difference in our community and as important helping some families have just a little brighter holiday,” added Tim Merrill, president of Maverick Washington.
Maverick Gaming recently saw more than 1,700 industry workers select Teamsters Local 117, with the union now serving members in Washington State from 19 cardhouses.
The local union based in Seattle was approved by an independent arbitrator as the exclusive bargaining agent of the workers through a card check process.
