Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from The Salvation Army

    PITTSBURGH, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Soon, needy children from all over
 Western Pennsylvania will be swimming, boating, playing ball and having a
 great time at The Salvation Army's Camp Allegheny.  Located along Slippery
 Rock Creek in Ellwood City, this 95-acre facility will operate its 2001 summer
 camp program from June 19 - August 14, 2001.  Camp Allegheny provides fun and
 excitement for children who normally would not have the opportunity for a
 summer camping experience.  Accredited by the American Camping Association,
 Camp Allegheny offers a diverse program including recreation, Christian
 education, character-building activities, nature, swimming, boating, arts &
 crafts, archery, hiking, a low-challenge ropes course and so much more.
     Daily, a seasonal food service staff provides three healthy meals to all
 participants.  Through a contract with the Department of Education Summer Food
 Service Program, free meals are provided to eligible children during the
 camping sessions.  This federally funded Summer Food Service Program provides
 approximately 9% of the total Camp operating budget, which helps keep the
 costs at a minimum for those attending.  Meals are provided regardless of
 race, color, national origin, sex or handicap.  Any person who believes he or
 she has been discriminated against in any USDA-related activity should contact
 the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.
