Sky Ute Casino sends aid to those affected by Hurricane Harvey

12 September 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- When the team members of Sky Ute Casino Resort saw the news of the flooding and devastation in Houston, they knew something needed to be done and done quickly. In an effort to help those most impacted, employees of Sky Ute Casino Resort went into action over Labor Day Weekend, collecting non-perishable food products, diapers, clothing and more to aid those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. All donations were exclusively made by employees of the casino-resort or tribal businesses, and hundreds of pounds of needed supplies including toiletries, food, diapers and clothing were collected.

"Our hearts go out to the people of Texas affected by the devastating flooding," said Krista Red-Garcia, General Manager Intern. "It was a team effort, driven by the employees' desire to help those most in need. I couldn't be prouder for the efforts of the team, as well as our department team leaders."

According to Red-Garcia, all of the donations were sorted and repackaged, bound for Houston on Monday by truck to be delivered to the Houston Diaper Bank, The United Way of Houston and The Food Bank of Corpus Cristi.
