SHARING SUCCESS
Volunteerism:
The Painted Hand Casino Volunteer Committee has
made a positive impact in many local organizations
and charities.

two housing projects. Employees have assisted with
this worthy cause by building a fence on one project
and landscaping on a second project. The Volunteer
Committee is also involved with the Soup Haven,
which is an organization that provides a free meal
to Yorkton citizens. In January 2012 PHC volunteers
made and served a hot supper for over 150 people.
