Along with Palms Casino Resort, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority have donated $125,000 to help Hawaiians as they try to recover from devastating wildfires. This is the first future donation that San Manuel could consider to help people affected by the Hawaiian forest fire. The donation will help Hawaii forest fire relief efforts and damage, and provide help to affected emergency food and other communities.
Mission Chairman Lynn Valbuena and San Manuel and Director Latisha Prieto of the Gaming Hospitality Authority say the tribe sees the devastating impact of the wildfires on Maui Island, with families calling it their hometowns, brave professional paramedics and other emergency workers helping with the recovery efforts. 카지노사이트
“Our hearts are filled with sympathy and hope for the people of Maui,” said Valbuena. “It takes time to recover from the tragedy suffered by the people of Hawaii. The destruction of Rahaina, the neighbours across the beautiful island of Maui, and the tourism industry is intolerable. We want to expand aid in a way that is as effective as possible.”
Latisha Prieto, the chairman of SMGHA, said, “During an important time in our history, our tribe has found solace in the sympathy of those who have extended their resources to our community. Now we have an opportunity to reach out to the Hawaiian community struggling with the destruction of forest fires.”
Support for the Red Cross by SMGHA and Palms is a further extension of the philanthropy of Palms Care and San Manuel. The tribe has been working with the American Red Cross for more than 20 years.
“We have important staff and guests who are deeply connected to Maui and the Hawaiian Islands,” said Cynthia Kiser Murphy, general manager of Palms Casino Resort. “We take strong pride in our first responders and the American Red Cross providing unwavering support for their important efforts. The Palms team will work closely with SMGA on our additional programs and the activities of Hawaiians.”
