Station Casinos pitch in after Salvation Army Theft
Casinos seem to be a magnet for negative news in the newspapers. So it’s nice to finally hear some good news regarding casinos after Station Casinos decided to help out following a major Salvation Army Theft.
Station Casinos gave the Salvation Army $13,000 after their headquarters were raided by thieves. According to workers, the thieves broke into a back room where the money collected from red kettles is counted, and made off with the $13k.
Speaking on behalf of Station Casinos, Lori Nelson told the Las Vegas Sun, “When we read the news and heard it on TV, we thought it was horrible. It just wasn’t in the holiday spirit how this happened. They have been longtime friends and we have been longtime supporters. We just thought it was a tragedy and it’s just the least we can do as members of the community.”
All 18 of the Station Casino venues helped out with the $13,000 donation. Of course, this isn’t the first time that Station Casinos have helped the Salvation Army’s cause. The Station company was very active in donating during relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina. They have also put money towards helping the Salvation Army improve low income housing areas.
As mentioned before, Station Casinos owns multiple venues including many throughout Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada. Some of the Las Vegas hotel & casinos include Boulder Station, Palace Station, Santa Fe Station and Texas Station. Henderson properties include Sunset Station, Green Valley Ranch, Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho.
