December 22, 2016 – Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited (“Gateway”) through its corporate giving program, GatewayGIVES, is proud to give back to its communities during the Holiday Season.
“As we enter the Holiday Season, we embrace our friends and family and celebrate our many blessings. For many this is a tough time of year. During this time it is important to remember those less fortunate than ourselves and help out, pitch in and make a difference where we can”, Tanya Gabara, Director, Public Relations for Gateway.
To date, Gateway and its 18 locations in British Columbia and Alberta has collectively donated almost 1,200lbs of food, 34 pairs of pajamas, over 150 winter clothing items, 100 toys, and over $20,000 in cash to various Food Banks, Christmas Bureaus, and non-profit organizations throughout its communities. In addition, Gateway employees have volunteered time to cook and deliver meals, hand out toys, jingle bells for the Salvation Army kettles and take pledges at the CKNW Orphans’ Fund telethon.
“Spending time at the telethon, collecting donations, was the very least I could do to help the children and this great cause”, said CKNW Orphans’ Fund telethon volunteer and Gateway Executive Assistant, Christina Kennedy.
Gateway prides itself on being a good corporate neighbour by supporting important community and charitable initiatives and by working closely with community leaders to ensure they are taking an active role, in supporting economic development in local communities in which they operate.
Gateway Casinos & Entertainment operates casino properties in communities across Western Canada. As a company, we gain so much from each of these communities and believe it is our responsibility to give back, pitch in and provide support to the causes that matter most to our neighbours. Through GatewayGIVES, we’re proud to offer not just our resources, but also our time, our know-how and our properties in supporting local charities and initiatives in the communities where we operate.
