Giving back to the community is a major part of student life at Carnegie Mellon University. And 1000Plus is an example of that.
1000plus is a Carnegie Mellon day of service. This year, students, faculty, staff, and alumni had an opportunity to positively impact the greater Pittsburgh community by engaging in service efforts on Saturday, March 26th. 1000plus is partnering with Pittsburgh Cares to provide multiple volunteer sites throughout the greater Pittsburgh area.
Here is a member of the student body explaining the program:
It is their goal to provide service opportunities for individuals, groups and alumni in the Carnegie Mellon community that allow them to have a personally relevant impact in the local area. They hope that 1000plus is a chance to connect and network with people of different interest that share the common goal of promoting service.
