The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians on Tuesday donated $7.3 million to 25 nonprofit organizations, the largest sum of money given by the tribe at one time.
Aquinas High School in San Bernardino, received $200,000, a huge some compared to the $25,000 that Pechanga gives local schools.
Bear in mind, Temecula residents, that Pechanga, in eliminating 25% of their tribe since 2005, has $125 MILLION dollars extra to do these sorts of things with (just since the terminations). INSTEAD, they eliminated 800 positions at the casino and give themselves $30,500 per month or $360,000 per year...EACH.
Pechanga saved a fortune in eliminating health coverage for many elders of the tribe and also college funding for the young who wanted to go. Pechanga spent $80 million trying to convince Riverside County that they were good....with television commercials.
Great work San Manuel! Keep up the efforts.
