Casino Donates 100 Turkeys and Helps with Meal Preparation to Feed Those Less Fortunate
PITTSBURGH — Nov. 25, 2013 — With the Thanksgiving holiday just days away, Rivers Casino and the Southside Rotary are talking turkey. Donating for the fourth year, Rivers Casino Team Members will give more than 100 turkeys this season to help feed those in need.
As a way of saying thanks to its Team Members, the Rivers Casino leadership team offers holiday turkeys to each employee just before Thanksgiving. Team Members then have the option of donating the birds 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” initiative. 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 Monday, Nov. 25. 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.
“Rivers Casino is proud to be a part of the Pittsburgh community and thankful that our Team Members choose to support these worthwhile organizations,” said André Barnabei, vice president of human resources for Rivers Casino. “We participate in philanthropic efforts year-round, and our team has a special connection to holiday events.”
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 Allegheny YMCA and cleaned up the shorelines with Friends of the Riverfront and Allegheny CleanWays.
