Faculty, staff, students, and alumni from the University of Pittsburgh participated in the Pitt United Way Good Neighbor Day on March 22. Attendees devoted their energies to projects in 11 locations where they painted, planted, mulched, mopped, scrubbed, and moved furniture and food.

This spring event—and the annual fall Pitt United Way Day of Caring—provide the Pitt community with opportunities to support the University’s neighbors.
