Faculty & Staff in Service to Community
Faculty and Staff in Service to Community is the primary home for a myriad of University of Pittsburgh community outreach programs in which faculty and staff members volunteer to participate. The work of Faculty and Staff in Service to Community is a fulfillment of the University’s belief that helping our neighbors is simply the right thing to do. It is also being done in the belief that as our neighbors prosper, we as an institution also benefit.
Today, Faculty and Staff in Service to Community is an association of over 3000 faculty and staff who primarily work in teams on over 100 projects annually, volunteering over 10,000 hours of community service. Among the local non-profit organizations served are: Global Links, the Salvation Army, Pittsburgh Aids Task Force, Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Family House. These activities are managed out of the Volunteer Pool which also coordinates the University’s participation in regional voluntary service efforts such a the United Way of Allegheny’s Day of Caring, the Pitt Partnership for Food in partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and monthly blood drives in collaboration with the Central Blood Bank of Pittsburgh. The Volunteer Pool is also organized to respond to national and international emergencies such as those created by Hurricane Katrina nationally and the Haiti earthquake internationally.
Faculty and Staff in Service to Community also coordinates the University’s participation in national service projects such as the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Month, Daffodil Days for the American Cancer Society and local service projects such as the Salvation Army’s Christmas Day Dinner at Pitt and Project Bundle-Up and, supporting Community Human Services Homeless programs.
