RIVERS CASINO SPREADS HOLIDAY CHEER WITH LOCAL CHARITIES

Players and Guests Support Operation Troop Appreciation and

Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank 

PITTSBURGH Dec. 20, 2012 — In the spirit of giving, Rivers Casino guests and Team Members are wrapping up 2012 with generous support for two local charitable organizations—Operation Troop Appreciation and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Operation Troop Appreciation

Operation Troop Appreciation (OTA) is dedicated to supporting members of the Armed Forces. By providing them with “wish list” items that contribute to their morale, OTA presents a united front of appreciation to deployed military men and women.

On Dec. 15 and 16 at Rivers, players that donated $10 to OTA received $10 Free Slot Play. In total, Rivers’ players and Team Members donated more than $10,200. The money will be used to send clothing, linens, snacks, entertainment items and other morale-boosting items to those serving our country.

Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank distributes food and other services through a 380+ member network in 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. Through outlets such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, after-school programs, senior high-rises, and neighborhood food assistance services, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank distributes around 21 million pounds of food per year to Pittsburghers.

Rivers players that donated three canned good items on Dec. 10 and 11 were eligible to receive $10 Free Slot Play. In an overwhelming response, Rivers’ guests filled more than 60 boxes with canned goods for this worthy cause.

“We’re grateful to be able to continue our tradition of giving and support for our neighbors,” said Craig Clark, Rivers Casino’s General Manager. “These initiatives offer guests a creative way to help those less fortunate while having a great time at the casino.”
