Rolling Hills Casino has extended the offer of free buffet meals to the evacuees of the Camp Fire through December 30, 2018. “The gratitude of the people displaced by the fire has been very touching”, said Steve Neely, Rolling Hills Casino General Manager. “The Tribal Leadership felt that extending the buffets through December 30th would help alleviate some of the stress from the evacuees, especially during the holiday season.” Rolling Hills Casino has provided more than $100,000 in buffets since beginning this effort. Those displaced from the fire must show identification with residency in Centerville, Cherokee, Concow, Deadwood, Helltown, Magalia, Paradise, Pulga or Yankee Hill. Collection stations for nonperishable items have been place at casino entrances for those who wish to donate items.
The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians, owner and operator of the Rolling Hills Casino in Corning, California, has launched a multi-tribal fundraising campaign to help victims of the Camp Fire in Butte County through the Tribe’s Paskenta Nomlaki Foundation.
The Foundation reached out to neighboring Tribes to join the fundraising effort to benefit victims of the Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history. All funds collected will be distributed to The Salvation Army and American Red Cross. Additionally, the Tribe will match up to $100,000 on all cash donations.
Our great North State has been recently ravaged by one of the worst wildfires in the history of California,” said Andrew “Dru” Alejandre, Tribal Chairman of the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians. “With a record number of fatalities and hundreds more still missing, and thousands of people displaced from homes that they may never return to, it is time for the Tribes to take action to help our neighbors.”
