We are very excited to announce that NBC affiliate, WPXI in Pittsburgh PA will feature OTA on the September 29th feature “Proud to be from Pittsburgh”.  Make sure you watch the news on the 29th and again on the morning of the 30th.  A link will be provided to the story once it airs.

A very special thank you to Mohawk Area School District for a phenomenal donation drive! This annual event has brought much needed items to OTA and they hit it out of the park this year! In total, they collected 5,824 donation items to send to our deployed troops! And also raised $1,000 in monetary donations – far exceeding their goals for the drive!
