BUFFALO, NY – On the heels of a donation drive to help support Buffalo’s East Side communities impacted by the recent mass shooting, a team of employees and volunteers from Seneca Gaming Corporation delivered a truckload of donated items to theFeedMore WNY Warehouse.
The corporation hosted a community donation gathering at Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino, where it collected non-perishable food items, toiletries, hygiene products, infant and child care products, and other daily necessities. In addition to the community donation, Seneca Gaming Corporation organized donation efforts for its more than 3,000 employees across its three locations – Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, and Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino.
The delivery totaled more than 700 pounds of donated items.
“This is what Western New York is all about,” said Kevin Nephew, Seneca Gaming Corporation President & CEO, who was on hand to help unload the delivery. “We put out a call to help, and people immediately answered. The effort to help and to heal isn’t about one neighborhood, it’s about all of us – everyone in Western New York. We are happy that, together with our employees, our friends and neighbors across the community, and the incredible team at FeedMore, we’re able to help, even in just a small way.”
Seneca Gaming Corporation is working with FeedMore WNY to organize the donated items and ensure they are delivered to residents in neighborhoods most impacted by the shooting.
