RIVERS CASINO COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS TEAM UP WITH THE PITTSBURGH PROJECT FOR A DAY OF SERVICE
Volunteers to transform youth space in Pittsburgh’s Northside

PITTSBURGHJan. 24, 2018 — The Rivers Casino Community Champions will lend a helping hand to the Northside community, as they partner with The Pittsburgh Project Friday, Jan. 26. Team Members will donate their time to assist the staff as they redesign and enhance the youth’s creative mentoring and learning environment.

The Pittsburgh Project coordinates service initiatives that improve local residents’ homes, maintain community areas and engage Pittsburgh’s youth. The organization’s service projects include annual free home repair for more than 130 of Pittsburgh’s elderly homeowners, maintenance of Fowler Park and Fowler pool and operates a progressive series of after-school and summer programs for more than 250 students.

“Our community wouldn’t be the same without the unwavering dedication and service of The Pittsburgh Project,” said Rahmon Hart, director of community relations at Rivers Casino. “We are so grateful for the chance to assist them in their efforts.”

This volunteer opportunity is part of Rivers Casino’s ongoing community service outreach program. Each month, Team Members assist in a service project that benefits the Pittsburgh community. Most recently, the Rivers Casino Community Champions completed a service project with the American Red Cross and the Southwestern Veterans’ Center.

“The Community Champions of Rivers Casino are wonderful service volunteers who help us in fulfilling our mission,” said Dennis Allan, board vice president of The Pittsburgh Project. “Our devoted team paired with the added support from Community Champions is what allows us to better our community.”
