Pittsburgh CLO Teams Up
with Catholic Charities & The Salvation Army
to Help Those in Need this Winter

Pittsburgh, PA • November 16, 2015 – Pittsburgh CLO has teamed up withCatholic Charities and The Salvation Army to make this winter a little warmer for those in need by conducting a Toiletry Drive throughout all performances of ALTAR BOYZ now through January 10 and a Food Drive during all performances of A MUSICAL CHRISTMAS CAROL December 4-23. Patrons attending either show may donate during any performance at donation barrels stationed at the theater.
For 105 years, Catholic Charities has served individuals and families in their time of great need, regardless of religious affiliation. Toiletry donations will be distributed through outreach offices in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Greene, Lawrence and Washington counties; and through Catholic Charities’ homeless outreach programs and services. This outreach includes: St. Joseph House of Hospitality, a transitional residence in Pittsburgh's Hill District for former homeless men over the age of 50; Roselia Apartments in downtown Pittsburgh for single, homeless women who are pregnant; Butler County homeless outreach to individuals and families that serves as the first point of contact for homeless needs in the county; and a daytime winter warming station in downtown Pittsburgh that provides relief from the cold weather.
Food Drive donations will go directly to The Salvation Army in Allegheny County to provide meals for those who are less fortunate this holiday season. This year alone over 4,800 individuals and 10,000 families have received financial assistance at a local Salvation Army.  In addition, 14,000 hot meals have been served and 8,300 area residents have received food from The Salvation Army’s emergency food banks.
Pittsburgh CLO graciously acknowledges the generosity of The Charity Randall Foundation for its sponsorship of the 2015-2016 CLO Cabaret Series, our production sponsor for A MUSICAL CHRISTMAS CAROL, First Niagara and Macy’s for sponsoring Half-priced Tickets for Kids.
