The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians' Four Winds® Casinos are pleased to announce a donation of approximately 1,000 meals this week for those in need in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan. Many of the meals will be delivered through Meals on Wheels of Southwest Michigan. Each meal includes ham, green beans, corn, au gratin potatoes, pound cake and strawberry sauce. Meals on Wheels of Southwest Michigan is a non-profit organization which helps seniors remain in their homes by providing meals at community nutrition sites as well as meals delivered directly to their homes.
Residents in the following communities will receive meals: LaPorte, South Bend and Michigan City, Indiana; along with Benton Harbor, Harbert and Cassopolis, Michigan. Pokagon Elders will also be receiving meals.
"The Pokagon Band has called this region home for hundreds of years. As part of this community, we're proud to support Meals on Wheels and their important work for elders," said John P. Warren, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. "Potawatomi people hold elders in high regard, and we are honored to give back in this meaningful way."
