RIVERS CASINO TEAM MEMBERS TALK TURKEY WITH SOUTHSIDE ROTARY

Casino Team Members Help with Meal Preparation to Feed Those Less Fortunate

            PITTSBURGH Nov. 20, 2012 — The bird is the word at Rivers Casino. To kick-off the season of giving, casino Team Members have donated 37 turkeys to the Southside Rotary. Additionally, approximately 20 Rivers Team Members will assist with preparing Thanksgiving dinner for the Southside Rotary’s annual “Get Stuffed with Love” event.

The event will begin with meal preparations at Holy Assumption of St. Mary Orthodox Church, 105 South 19th Street, from 4—8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Volunteers will then hand-deliver the meals on Thanksgiving Day. Last year’s event fed more than 1,500 homeless, elderly and shut-in individuals and families.

“Now in our third year of partnership with the Southside Rotary, we’re thrilled to be able to continue our tradition of giving and community support,” said André Barnabei, vice president of human resources for Rivers Casino. “As our Team Members spend time in the kitchen preparing these meals, we know that these donations really make a difference for the less fortunate.”

The holiday project with Southside Rotary is just one example of Rivers’ ongoing, yearlong commitment to the community. Earlier this year, team members repainted the emergency shelter facility with the NorthShore Community Alliance and cleaned up the shorelines with Friends of the Riverfront and Allegheny CleanWays.
