With the success of last year’s holiday giveaway, this year’s intention is to see the event become a beloved tradition for the community, one that ensures families in need have the opportunity to share a holiday meal together while promoting the spirit of giving this holiday season.
Every year during the holidays, the Tribe and Avi Resort and Casino donate meals to local churches, food banks and community organizations.
The annual holiday food giveaway grew out of these donations and is intended to make a difference in the lives of those who struggle with food insecurity.
In addition to the Christmas food giveaway, the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe and Avi Resort & Casino will provide donations to St. Vincent De Paul in Needles, California, the Kingman Area Food Bank and the Corner Mission in Kingman, Arizona, the Havasu Community Health Foundation in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and the Golden Shores Senior Center.
Meal boxes will be distributed to families on a first come, first served basis at drive-thru food stations.
Those coming to the giveaway with vehicles must line up on the far south side of the parking lot near the San Bernardino County Public Library building.
Those coming to the giveaway without vehicles will line up along the rignt lane of northbound Bailey Avenue; the line of vehicles will then enter from the far south side of the parking lot near the San Bernardino County Public Library building and next out onto J Street. Vehicles going southbound Bailey Avenue will not be able to make a left turn into the south side parking lot; vehicles will be directed south to the end of the line of vehicles along northbound Bailey Avenue.
Anybody coming to get turkey dinners should bring either a bag or box.
