Lake City Casino in Vernon has launched the 11th annual food bank drive.

“We are very excited to be running the food bank campaign again this year,” said Jerry Pokorny, executive general manager for Lake City Casino.

“We all know that the holiday season can be tough for many. During this time it is important to remember those less fortunate than ourselves and help out, pitch in and make a difference where we can.”

Until Dec. 11, residents can bring in a non-perishable food item for the local food bank and receive a ballot to enter to win $250.

The prize draw will take place on Dec. 12.

The Salvation Army operates the House of Hope food bank in Vernon.

“Lake City Casino Vernon proudly supports the House of Hope as it aspires to alleviate chronic hunger and poverty while seeking solutions to the causes of food insecurity,” said Pokorny.

Donations can be dropped off at Lake City Casino on Anderson Way.
