Pitt Make A Difference Day (PMADD)
PMADD has been connecting University of Pittsburgh students to the greater Pittsburgh area through community service since 2007. At Pitt, we truly believe that “the city of Pittsburgh is our campus.” In 2007, Pitt’s Student Government Board and the Office of Student Life initiated the First Annual PMADD to give back to the community in which we live and learn.
Since its inception, PMADD has become not only a well-known Pitt tradition, but also the single largest day of community service performed by Pitt students. Last year, more than 2,600 Pitt students assembled in front of the William Pitt Union to load busses set for more than 60 communities in Oakland and the greater Pittsburgh area. Students engaged in acts of service ranging from cleaning up local parks to repainting neighborhood buildings and assembling safe sex kits for the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force. While serving alongside community members, Pitt students have the opportunity to form new relationships with peers.
This year, our sixth annual Pitt Make A Difference Day will be held on Saturday, October 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you are interested in finding out more about how you or your organization can make a difference on PMADD 2012, please browse the FAQ section of our website.
