PITT-BRADFORD GROUPS WORK WITH UNITED WAY TO GATHER FOOD

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, along with two of its student groups, is working with the United Way of the Bradford Area to gather food next month for area food banks.

The food drive, which is being organized by Pitt-Bradford’s Students in Free Enterprise, will gather non-perishable items from Nov. 1 through 19. Items will be split between the Bradford YWCA food pantry, the Bradford Salvation Army food pantry and The Friendship Table, which provides evening meals for those who are hungry.

On campus, the Student Nurse Organization will be collecting at several sites: Frame-Westerberg Commons, Hanley Library, Fisher Hall, Swarts Hall, Blaisdell Hall and the Sport and Fitness Center.

Off-campus drop points for individuals or organizations to make donations are Bradford branches of Northwest Savings Bank and the lobby of Pitt-Bradford’s Seneca Building on Marilyn Horne Way downtown.

Non-perishable food and hygiene items are welcome. Organizers hope to gather 5,000 pounds of food during the drive.

To sign up your business or organization as a collection point or for more information, contact Diana Maguire, associate project director for the Entrepreneurship Program at Pitt-Bradford, at 814-362-5277 or dsm20@pitt.edu.
