Foxwoods to Hold 5th Annual ''Stuff the Bus'' Campaign in Support of Local Families

Donations Will Support Thousands In Need This Holiday Season
Mashantucket, CT  Foxwoods® Resort Casino is proud to announce the return of its seasonal giving campaign, “Stuff the Bus,” in which unwrapped toys, blankets, pajamas, jackets and diapers will be collected in support of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut and its “Tommy Toy” Fund program.  This year’s annual campaign will begin on November 4 and will continue through December 11.  During the five-week campaign contributions will be accepted from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m. daily at the Foxwoods Bus Terminal as well as at select locations in the Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods.
“Our annual The Stuff the Bus campaign has been a tremendous success and we are very proud to continue to support this and many other important charitable initiatives along with our loyal guests and team members,” said Felix Rappaport, President & CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino.  “Last year’s campaign resulted in nearly 16,000 donated toys which directly impacted thousands of area children and families during the holiday season, and we look forward to surpassing those tremendous results in 2017.”
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and its enterprises continue to embrace ongoing commitment to giving back to the community through dozens of initiatives including providing more than two million meals to local individuals and families in Southeastern, CT.  These annual programs continued as part of a long standing partnership between the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut and the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center, located in New London, Connecticut, along with the employees, guests and friends of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Foxwoods Resort Casino. 
To kick off this year’s “Stuff the Bus” campaign, Foxwoods will once again host a launch celebration which will take place on Saturday, November 4 at 11:00 a.m. in front of the Grand Pequot Tower.  Members of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Foxwoods Executive Team will officially start the program by making donations of their own.  For more details visit
