Pitt Make a Difference Day lineup announced

Move over Steelers, Penquins and Pitt Panthers and make room for another great fall team -- the Pitt Make a Difference Day student volunteers -- 5,000 strong. They will participate in the Fall Redd Up for the ninth year on Saturday, October 22. Citizens Against Litter has been involved with Pitt from the beginning.

Later this month, the 5,000 student volunteers will be transported on 80 buses to about 100 sites to perform community service projects, most of them involved in picking up litter. The Pitt student turnout is one of the largest group efforts in the national Make a Difference Day initiative which attracts over 3 million volunteers.

This month's Redd Up will involve several hundred communities in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and beyond and involve an estimated 10,000 volunteers.
