(MARICOPA, Ariz. – Dec. 6, 2018) The HDS Associates team planned and executed an Indian Taco Fundraiser on November 16th to recognize Native American Heritage Month. HDS stands for Harrah’s Development System which is the Ak-Chin Indian Community’s career development program at Harrah’s Ak-Chin.
The Associates chose to donate the proceeds from that event, which totaled $1,258.25, to Maricopa Against Abuse, Inc. According to Torri Anderson, a member of the board of directors, the money will be used for operational expenses at the shelter in Maricopa.
The HDS Associates are also coordinating the shelter’s Adopt-A-Family effort.
According to Jane Stimmel, Employee Engagement and HDS Manager, “many of our Harrah’s Ak-Chin employees give so much of themselves at the holidays and throughout the year. We are honored to be a part of this community and lend our support to those in need.”
Dan Wolfrum from US Foods donated all the ingredients for the event, ensuring that all proceeds would go directly to Maricopa Against Abuse, Inc.
