PITTSBURGH — Feb. 18, 2020 — On Friday, Feb. 21, Rivers Casino Pittsburgh’s Rivers Gives volunteers will spend the day with the folks at Magic Yarn Project. Team Members will be assisting with yarn workshops from 9 a.m. to noon and noon to 3 p.m.

The Magic Yarn Project is a growing organization that creates magic in the lives of children battling cancer by providing Disney-themed yarn wigs that are comfortable, soft and warm enough to be worn by children going through chemotherapy. The volunteer work of Magic Yarn Project truly makes a difference in every community it is involved in. In order to remain a free service to children and their families, Magic Yarn Project is always kindly accepting donations.

“We couldn’t be more grateful to have the volunteers from Rivers Casino Pittsburgh helping us make these magic creations for the kids. We witness miracles happen every day, but we’re most happy to see the kids smile,” said Jessica Ash, Pittsburgh chapter leader at Magic Yarn Project.

This volunteer opportunity is part of Rivers Casino’s ongoing community service outreach program, Rivers Gives. Each month, Team Members assist in a service project that benefits the Pittsburgh community. Most recently, Rivers Gives completed a project with A Giving Heart in which volunteers painted the locker room adjacent to the gymnasium.

“This is the first time we’ll be volunteering at Magic Yarn Project and everyone is very excited. In fact, we have over 50 Team Members signed up for this,” said Rahmon Hart, director of community relations at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “Magic Yarn Project does such special work. We can’t wait to make the Disney-themed wigs for kids on Friday.”
