SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER, ON – Aug 6, 2019- Six Nations Bingo, a sub-department of Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) is now accepting donations for the Stuff the Bus Campaign. The goal of this campaign is to fill a bus with donations that students, teachers, and families can use at the two local schools benefiting from the supply drive: Kawenni:io Immersion School and Everlasting Tree School. These two private schools rely heavily on fundraising and community support, as each school receives limited federal funding to operate.
“We encourage everyone to stop by the Six Nations Bingo Customer Appreciation BBQ and Stuff the Bus finale day to enjoy some free food, drop off your donations, and play some fun games and activities at the BBQ,” said John Heathers, Director of Gaming at Six Nations Bingo. The school drive, BBQ, and outdoor games are open to community members of all ages. To participate in the Customer Appreciation Bingo, you must be 18 years or older to play.
The school drive which ends on August 24, 2019 during Six Nations Bingo’s Customer Appreciation event, was offered by Six Nations Bingo to any of the local elementary schools who choose to move their annual Toy Bingo Fundraiser venue to the Gathering Place by the Grand Event Centre (GPG). Six Nations Bingo has invited numerous local businesses, along with their suppliers to participate in the event. Six Nations Bingo will also be encouraging customers to donate to the cause by offering additional games and prizes during regular sessions. Anyone wishing to contribute to the supply drive can drop off their donations at the Six Nations Bingo Hall (2585 Chiefswood Rd) from now until the Stuff the Bus finale event held on Saturday, August 24 between 3-6 PM.
