Three Rivers Casino Resort Announces Holiday Toy Drive to Support Local Families
FLORENCE, Ore. – As the holiday season approaches, Three Rivers Casino is reaching out to its community
to make a difference in the lives of children in need. The Casino’s 19th annual Toy & Food Drive will run
from Nov. 1 to Dec. 6, inviting residents to join in the spirit of giving as the needs continue to grow.
Members of the community are encouraged to contribute by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more or donating three cans of non-perishable food items. Donors will receive $5 in free play at Three Rivers Casino.
“At Three Rivers Casino, we are deeply rooted in our community, and we understand the importance of giving back, especially during the holiday season,” said Marguerite Morgan, Promotions Coordinator at Three Rivers. “We live here, we work here, and we want to ensure that children in our area experience the joy and magic of the holidays.”
Florence resident Liberty Kommer knows firsthand the importance of generosity. Having faced a childhood without the opportunity to receive a single toy or experience the warmth of the holiday season, Kommer has made it her personal mission to ensure that Florence-area children don’t go through the same experience.
Since 2020, Kommer has saved up $1,000 annually to purchase toys for local children, including last year’s
generous donation of a truckload of bicycles and helmets to the Toy & Food Drive. “These children need to understand how precious they are, how their lives are so important. We need to show those children we care about their wellbeing. So please, donate Christmas toys and gifts to the children of our community,” said Kommer.
In nearly two decades, the casino has collected thousands of toys for the local community. As the drive
concludes in December, all donated toys will be handed over to the local police station, ensuring that they find their way into the hands of children in Florence, brightening their holiday season.
“Drop a toy off, make a child’s life exciting and fun. It’ll bring joy to everybody here in our community,” said Morgan. Join Three Rivers Casino in making a positive impact this holiday season by participating in the Toy & Food Drive.
