Red Lake Toy Drive


Red Lake Tribal Treasurer Darrell G. Seki, Sr. and his staff have taken on the charge to try and find toys for the kids at Red Lake. You may be hearing a radio commercial that Darrell recorded asking for donations of toys for Red Lake’s kids. In return for a $5 unwrapped gift or more, you will receive a coupon for a $5 play at Seven Clans Casinos.

Audio: As the holidays approach many children are thinking about presents under the tree. Yet some children may not have a toy this season. Hi, this is Darrell Seki Senior, Tribal Treasurer of the Red Lake Nation. The Red Lake nation is holding a toy drive ensuring no children on the reservation go without a toy this Christmas, but we need your help. Please drop off an unwrapped toy at Seven Clans Casino, Red Lake or at the Red Lake Accounting Office. As a way of saying thanks for your toy donation valued at five dollars or more, you’ll receive a five dollar free play casino coupon. So drop off a toy at Seven Clans Casino Red Lake or at the Red Lake Accounting Office and get a five dollar gaming coupon. Make sure all the kids on the reservation receive a toy this holiday season by making your donation today….

We recently received notification from the Minneapolis Toys for Tots Coordinator that starting this year they will no longer be able to provide services to our communities. The Red Lake Nation remains committed to fulfilling this very important need and as a result of losing this resource, we are forming a Red Lake Nation Toy Drive.

We are reaching out to our community members in hopes that you will join with us in helping meet our goal to provide gifts to each registered child from ages 0-16 this holiday season. In order to succeed with this mission we will need individuals to volunteer their time, donate gifts and/or monetary donations.

The following individuals are serving as co-chairs for this cause:

Lea Perkins - 218-679-3341

Cindy Gagnon - 218-679-1806

Barb Beaulieu - 218-679-1802

Apryl Lattergrass - 218-679-2111

Please contact one of these individuals for further information.

We will be announcing drop-off locations for donated gifts. Cash donations can be brought to Evelyn McKenzie at the Red Lake Accounting Office. Money orders or checks can be made payable to: Red Lake Nation Toy Drive, and mailed to: PO Box 574, Red Lake, Minnesota 56671.
