River Rock Casino Resort Donates $20,000 to Richmond Family Place

Last year, River Rock Casino Resort named Richmond Family Place as the property’s signature charitable partner and this year, as one part of their relationship with the organization, River Rock donated $20,000 to support their programs.

“We are so proud of the relationship we have built with the Richmond Family Place over the last year, because we have seen first-hand how much support they provide to the entire community,” said Roland Monteiro, Executive Director, River Rock Casino Resort.

The donated funds will support key programs that are provided by Richmond Family Place during the Food Bank distribution days. Such programs include the Early Learning program where families attending the food bank can play in a rich learning environment as well as the evening Family Fun Café which provides a light dinner, activities and discussions that include cooking on a budget, food preservation, and gardening in small spaces.

Richmond Family Place was established in 1979 with the purpose of offering support to families in the Richmond community. Today, Richmond Family Place serves over 5,000 families, 300 community meals and over 6,000 parents per year through their programs, educational classes and workshops.
