The Redwind Casino employees of the Green Team organized a fundraiser for the Holiday Gift Drive.
With the help of Redwind Casino employees Erin Eckstein, Patricia Rigby, and other employees, you will make the Holiday brighter and put a smile on a child’s face who may otherwise not have received any gifts, at all.
Thank you Redwind Casino Green Team. You’re awesome!

Make a difference this season by giving a helping hand to children in need. You can donate food items and gifts until December 11. The list of donatable items, drop off locations, and volunteer information is all listed here.

Everyone wants to be safe, especially in their home. Having a fire extinguisher in your home is a huge step, but you should make sure it will work when you really need it to. Check the label on your extinguisher. Several models made by Kidde have been recalled.
For more information on the recall and how to determine if your extinguisher is on the list, read more here.
Every fall, like clock-work, the time change rushes upon us, bringing with it a reminder to change and test the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. It’s almost daylight saving time. The National Fire Protection Association reports that 71% of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries. Please take the time to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Daylight saving is nearly here. When you set your clock back on November 5th, remember to check the batteries in your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector. And be sure to remind your friends and family to check their alarms, as well!
Flu season is here and there’s a message doctors want adults to keep in mind: vaccines aren’t just for children! Read more here on the KOMO news website.
