About 3,000 Pitt students participated in the second annual Pitt Make a Difference Day (PMADD) Oct. 17. 1. Buses departed from the William Pitt Union at 9:30 a.m. to go to various sites throughout Allegheny County. 2. Volunteers traveled to McKeesport to the Produce-to- People site, which is part of the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank’s direct distribution program. 3. Other students picked up trash on Railroad Street in the Strip District. PMADD is sponsored by Pitt’s Student Government Board; Student Volunteer Outreach paid for the buses and supplies. Pitt’s Division of Student Affairs offered Outside the Classroom Curriculum credit for participation. Some Pitt staff and faculty members also participated.
