Brookline's fall clean-up was given a turbo-charger of youthful enthusiasm through the Pitt Make a Difference Day in which 40 college students and ten community volunteers teamed up and picked up 45 large bags of trash, 3 huge blue bags of recyclables and about a dozen tires.
The students were very enthusiastic, friendly and worked hard. They really loved the free coffee and pastries and after the clean up relaxed for a half an hour in the coffee shop and wolfed down some awesome pie from Brookline's own Antonio's Pizza.
Special thanks to our fine boulevard businesses: Cannon Coffee, Party Cake Bakery and Antonio's Pizza for supplying the troops with caffine, pastries and pizza! Thanks to the Unitversity of Pittsburgh and our stalwart community volunteers.
Attached are pictures of volunteers Daryl Wood and Travis Sefzik posing with with our bounty of trash. Natalia Rudiak's office had a professional photographer take a picture of everyone together, but you will have to contact her office if you would like a copy.
