RIVERS CASINO COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS TAKE ON NEW PROJECT WITH CENTER FOR VICTIMS

Casino Team Members to Assist Organization in Painting Project 

PITTSBURGH – March 28, 2016 – Tomorrow, the Rivers Casino Community Champions will take part in a spring cleaning and beautification project to benefit Center for Victims’ domestic violence shelter and housing programs. Volunteer Team Members from the casino will be painting as well as assisting with various other tasks throughout the day.

Center for Victims is the most comprehensive, inclusive provider of services, advocacy and education for victims of all crimes in Allegheny County and in Pennsylvania. Center for Victims crucial services assist women, men and children who have been victimized by any type of crime in Allegheny County as a Comprehensive Crime Victim & Witness Assistance Center, Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter, Housing & Counseling Center, Rape Crisis/Sexual Assault Center, Community Crisis Response Team and Professional Development Training, Education & Advocacy Center. For more information, visit www.centerforvictims.org.

“The Rivers Casino Community Champions are true heroes of the community who dedicate their time and efforts to help brighten the lives of others. We are grateful to have them as partners, not just on this particular project, but throughout the year as they bring an overwhelming sense of passion and care to all of their projects,” said Danielle Grooms, Community Engagement Assistant at Center for Victims.  

This is not the first time the Community Champions have lent a helping hand to Center for Victims. In 2014, Rivers Team Members helped “Paint the Square Purple,” when Center for Victims volunteers held the event in Market Square to raise awareness for Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.

“We are honored to lend a hand to one of our long-time community partners, the Center for Victims,” said Rahmon Hart, director of community development at Rivers Casino. “The Community Champions are looking forward to helping the organization advance its mission of advocacy for victims of crime and abuse.”

This volunteer effort is a part of Rivers Casino’s ongoing community service outreach program. Each month, Team Members assist in a service project that benefits the Pittsburgh community. In 2015, Team Members donated more than 1,000 hours through the Community Champions program. Over 1,000 hours were donated by the Community Champions last year, and most recently, the Community Champions visited Life’sWork of Western PA, where they also assisted in a painting project.
