Gun Lake Sends Donations to Walpole Island Tribal Nation

Gun Lake Walpole donation drive

WAYLAND, MI – Gun Lake Casino and the Gun Lake Tribe sent a trailer filled with donated goods to the Walpole Island First Nation in Wallaceburg, Ontario, Canada. The annual “Stuff the Trailer” donation drive sends donated clothing, food, household, and personal items to a tribal community. The donations were collected at both the casino and the tribe’s government offices. The Nottawaseppi Huron Band and the Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi Indians, as well as Gun Lake Investments also provided contributions.

“We sincerely thank all our guests and the tribal community here in West Michigan for the overwhelming response to this year’s stuff the trailer donation drive,” said Sal Semola, Chief Executive Officer of Gun Lake Casino. “This yearly occasion holds significance as it provides the Gun Lake Tribe with an opportunity to support fellow tribal nations facing economic challenges in assisting their citizens.”

This year, over $95,000 worth of donated goods were received throughout the month of November. These items will make their way to Walpole Island First Nation to benefit the community. The list of donations this year includes coats, boots, hats, gloves, clothing, toys, non-perishable food, and household items.
