Difference makers in South Side

 

University of Pittsburgh joined in with South Side block watch members to clean up the neighborhood during Pitt Make a Difference Day. After helping in the rain, one group of students was treated to a pot luck lunch in a South Side home.

More than 300 Pitt students spend the day working along side South Side Community Council members and other resident volunteers during Pitt's annual Pitt Make A Difference Day.

In spite of the rain, students weeded tree pits, painted, assisted with the gardens at Baudi Schaum and continued with the clearing of the brush at the Riverfront Trail. Students worked from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and then enjoyed lunch provided by the residents, council and local restaurants.

Businesses supplying food for Pitt Make a Difference Day on South Side lunch included The Pretzel Shop, Fatheads, Piper's Pub, Zenith, Cupka's, Carson Street Deli and Mamma Mia.

Pitt students gathered outside the South Side Welcome Center before joining the South Side Chamber of Commerce Clean Team to collect litter on East Carson and surrounding streets in South Side during a rainy Pitt Make a Difference Day.
