Cherokee Casino Ramona employees provided items for the school
RAMONA, Okla. – As children returned to Caney Valley Elementary School for a new school year, the supplies closet was loaded with more items due to a contribution from employees of Cherokee Casino Ramona.
In the weeks leading to the beginning of the new school year, casino employees collected then contributed more than $200 in supplies, including glue, scissors, paper and other items to be used throughout the school year.
The timing was perfect according to Nancy Collins, principal of Caney Valley Elementary, who said the contribution of supplies is much needed due to continuing tough economic conditions.
“This year we have had more requests for assistance than normal, so these supplies will make a positive impact on families,” Collins said. “This stuff will go a long way.”
Chris Province, casino operations manager for Cherokee Casino Ramona, said he was proud of the dedication his employees showed by contributing to the supply drive for the elementary school.
“It means a lot to witness the generosity of our employees who spent their own money to make sure children have the necessary items to be successful,” Province said. “We strive to be a great community partner, and this school supply contribution is another example of the dedication of our employees.”
