RIVERS CASINO COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS TO LEND SUPPORT TO THE PITTSBURGH PROJECT
Casino Team Members to Volunteer in Home Repair Efforts in Pittsburgh Neighborhoods

PITTSBURGHJan. 25, 2017 — The Rivers Casino Community Champions will lend a helping hand to the Northside community, as they partner with The Pittsburgh Project Thursday, Jan. 26 with some needed neighborhood development services.

The Pittsburgh Project coordinates service initiatives that maintain neighborhood recreational areas, improve vulnerable homeowners’ homes and engage Pittsburgh’s young people. 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 providing after-school and summer programs for nearly 250 students. 

“The Pittsburgh Project provides a much-needed service for this community,” said Rahmon Hart, director of community development at Rivers Casino. “We are grateful for the chance to assist them in their efforts.”

“Volunteers like the Community Champions help us to carry our mission forward,” said Will Thompkins, executive director of The Pittsburgh Project. “It’s because of our dedicated team and the added volunteer support that we are able to better our community and keep its wonderful communal areas intact.”

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. Most recently, the Rivers Casino Community Champions completed a service project with the American Red Cross and the Southwestern Veterans’ Center.
