LAWTON, OK – Comanche Cares, a community giving initiative by Comanche Nation Entertainment, is hosting its annual toy drive benefiting families and children in need in southern Oklahoma. Donations will be accepted every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12:00pm to 10:00pm between Nov. 7 and Dec. 14.
“This magical time of year is an opportunity for all of us to deliver some holiday joy to our communities, and Comanche Nation Entertainment is proud to continue our commitment to making the season brighter for children in need,” said Mia Tahdooahnippah, CEO of Comanche Nation Entertainment. “Our annual toy drive has evolved into a cherished tradition, one that fuels our dedication to brightening the holidays for children and families who depend on our support.”
Guests can join Comanche Cares in giving back to those who need it most this holiday season by donating new and unwrapped toys at designated drop-off locations within participating casinos. Player’s Club members who donate a toy valued between $5 and $25 can present their receipt to receive double their donation in Comanche Credit, up to $50.
Donations can be dropped off at the following Comanche Nation Entertainment properties:
- Comanche Red River Casino in Devol at 196747 Highway 36
- Comanche Nation Casino in Lawton at 402 SE Interstate Drive
- Comanche Nation Spur Casino in Elgin at 9047 US Hwy 62
- Comanche War Pony Casino in Devol at 250652 E 2000 Rd
- Comanche Nation Star Casino in Walters at 263171 Highway 53
The Comanche Cares toy drive donates an average of $20,000 to $40,000 annually in gifts and toys to communities throughout southwest Oklahoma every holiday season.
“The recurring success of our yearly toy drive is a testament to our community’s unity and ability to rally around one another,” said Tahdooahnippah. “To see how happy the families are when they received the toys is truly rewarding.”
The donations will promote the outreach efforts of local organizations and non-profits, including Team Jaden Foundation, Comanche Nation Police Department, Comanche Nation and Fletcher Christmas Store, an organization that offers free holiday gifts to families in need.
