RIVERS CASINO COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS HELP OUT AT THE HOSANNA HOUSE

Casino Team Members to Assist in Opening and Renovations of the Sherwood Event Center 

PITTSBURGH – April 27, 2016 – Tomorrow, the Rivers Casino Community Champions will help with the opening and assist with renovations of the Sherwood Event Center operated by Hosanna House, in Wilkinsburg, PA, from 9 a.m.—4 p.m. Volunteers will be painting, landscaping and organizing the center throughout the day.

Hosanna House is a community center serving more than 35,000 people a year for multiple purposes. The center’s mission is to provide opportunities that will empower families and individuals with hope and quality health and human services.

“We are lucky to have such passionate and driven volunteers to help us complete our opening and assist with renovations to the Sherwood Event Center, which serves thousands of families in our community,” said Al Merritt, director of Hope Group, New Business Sales and Facility Operations at Hosanna House.

This volunteer project is a part of Rivers Casino’s ongoing community service outreach program. Team Members participate in a service project every month and more than 1,000 hours were donated by the Community Champions last year.

“Hosanna House provides essential services and programs to our community, and we are proud to pitch in and get the job done,” said Rahmon Hart, director of community development at Rivers Casino.
