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 this week 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.
The Foundation 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.”
Nonperishable donations can also be dropped off at designated entrances at Rolling Hills Casino and a complimentary buffet meal will be provided to any Paradise resident or first responder with proper I.D.
