FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO TO HOLD 4TH ANNUAL “STUFF THE BUS” CAMPAIGN IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL FAMILIES

Donations Will Support Thousands of Children and Families in Need This Holiday Season

 

MASHANTUCKET, CT (October 25, 2016)– Foxwoods® Resort Casino, the largest resort casino in North America, is proud to announce the return of its seasonal giving campaign, “Stuff the Bus,” in which unwrapped toys, blankets, pajamas, jackets and diapers will be collected in support of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut and its “Tommy Toy” Fund program.  This year’s annual campaign will begin on November 5 and will continue through December 10.  During the five-week campaign contributions will be accepted from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m. daily at the Foxwoods Bus Terminal, Bay #1 as well as at all Foxwoods hotel lobbies and select locations in the Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods.

 

“The Stuff the Bus campaign is one of our most important charitable initiatives, and we are proud of the continued support shown by our loyal guests, Team Members and many of the celebrities who visit or perform at Foxwoods,” said Felix Rappaport, President & CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino.  “In fact, this program continues to get even bigger and more successful every year, and has now brightened the holidays for more than 20,000 children and families in the region.”

 

To kick off this year’s “Stuff the Bus” campaign, Foxwoods will once again host a launch celebration which will take place on Saturday, November 5 at 11:00 a.m. in front of the Grand Pequot Tower.  Members of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Foxwoods Executive Team will officially start the program by making donations of their own.

 

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and its enterprises continue to embrace ongoing commitment to giving back to the community through dozens of initiatives including providing more than two million meals to local individuals and families in Southeastern, CT.  These annual programs continued as part of a long standing partnership between the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut and the Gemma E.
