The Riverview Community Action Corp. in Oakmont is hoping to help needy families in Oakmont and Verona this holiday season.
The organization once again is asking for toy and food donations to distribute to families in need. Lynn Verratti, information officer for RCAC, said a previous donor is unable to help this year, so it's important for the community to pitch in to help local families.
Anyone who needs help can call Verratti at 412-828-1062 to request food or toys this season—it is required to live in Oakmont or Verona. The food pantry is open all year.
Verratti said members hope to distribute toys to families on Dec. 17 this year.
RCAC also will be hosting a line dancing Christmas show on Friday, Dec. 7, at 10 a.m. admission is free, but those who attend are asked to bring a health/beauty or cleaning item for the food pantry.
