PROUD Community Action
At Casino Nanaimo, we believe that PROUD community action speak louder than words. That is why we are always looking for opportunities to become involved with community partners and charitable organizations within our city. By getting out into our community to volunteer our PROUD community action efforts, we achieve meaningful results that have made our Nanaimo community support services better and stronger for everyone.
