Hampton Inn collecting donations for displaced Penn Hills family

Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, 10:42 a.m.

The staff of the Hampton Inn in Monroeville is doing much more than just hosting a family who lost their Coal Hollow Road home in a Jan. 30 fire.

They are helping the family start over.

Andrew Frost, director of sales and marketing at the Hampton Inn Monroeville, said staff members are collecting community donations of clothing and toys to give to the family — a single mother with two children and a dog.

Frost initially posted on the Hampton Inn Monroeville's Facebook page, and said the hotel had received four boxes of donations less than 24 hour later.

“Facebook hosts a lot of stupid stuff, so I thought I would post something a little more worthwhile,” Frost said.

The hotel will be accepting donations through Friday and is located at 3000 Mosside Blvd. in Monroeville. For more information, call 412-380-4000.
