Maverick Cares Partners With Local Communities For Harvest Holiday Event
Event hosted by 11 Maverick Gaming locations today to distribute 4,000 Harvest Holiday meal kits, including: whole chicken or ham, mac n’ cheese, potatoes, vegetables, pumpkin pie and dinner rolls
Families in need reserve vouchers in advance, kits will be distributed today while supplies last
WASHINGTON – As families prepare to gather, Maverick Cares is partnering today with local communities to make it a little easier for those in need to celebrate this time of year by distributing 4,000 holiday meal kits at participating locations for its Harvest Holiday event. Since its founding in 2019, employee-led Maverick Cares has hosted quarterly charitable events at Maverick Gaming properties statewide and engaged in local community partnerships in support of local families.
Families have signed up in advance to reserve packs to pick up at a Maverick location online. Kits will be distributed today while supplies last.
“The past few years have challenged us all, but none more than those who already worried about just getting food on the table for their families,” said Maverick Gaming CEO and co-founder, Eric Persson. “As we come together at this time of thanksgiving, I thank our partners and our team mates for once again collaborating to help local families most in need this time of year.”
WHEN: TODAY, November 22, 3PM-7PM
WHERE: Participating Maverick Gaming locations (addresses listed below)
Maverick Cares is an employee-led project of the team at Maverick Gaming to build a community of partnership everywhere Maverick Gaming operates. In 2021, Maverick Cares distributed holiday meal kits in December, Thanksgiving meal kits to families in need in November, 8,000 backpacks filled with school supplies in August and meal kits and educational field trip vouchers for local K-12 students in March. Most recently, Maverick Cares distributed “back-to-school” packs to kids in August and summer pack giveaways on June 28 for its annual “School’s Out” event. Maverick Care’s upcoming Harvest Holiday event is made possible by partnerships with ABS Business Data, Alpine Machine, FabiCash, Galaxy Gaming, Milkvue Donuts, Western Bay Software, Royal Gamut Properties, Seattle Face Paint, Strategy9 and Yakult USA.
Maverick Cares also thanks the local elected leaders who are volunteering their time to help hand out donations today: Senator Rebecca Saldaña (and her staff), Representative David Hackney, Representative Mia Gregerson, Representative Mark Klicker, Tukwila Mayor Allan Ekberg, Tukwila Councilmembers Kate Kruller and Thomas McLeod and Yakima Councilmembers Patricia Byers and Holly Cousens.
“It’s always a pleasure to see the happiness created by this event,” said Tukwila Mayor Allan Ekberg.
