Carnegie Mellon University’s 1000plus Day of Service

Several students from Carnegie Mellon University volunteered at Sojourner House during CMU’s annual 1000Plus Day of Service, on Saturday, October 7, 2017. During the event, the volunteers performed yard work and cleaned the property surrounding Sojourner House’s East Liberty residence. Lending a helping hand were Interim CMU president, Farnam Jahanian, and Jim Rohr, Chairman of the Board.

1000plus is a collective of 1,000 Carnegie Mellon University students, faculty, staff, and alumni who join forces each year to provide a variety of community service projects at organizations throughout the Pittsburgh area … all with the goal of creating a positive impact. Sojourner House, along with multiple other organizations, was one of the recipients of these services this year.

CMU Interim President Farnam Jahanian, Provost Laurie Weingart, the Dean’s of each college, and Jim Rohr, the Chairman of CMU’s Board of Trustees, participate in 1000 Plus Days of Service, including appearances at Light of Life, Sojourner House and Arsenal Family & Children’s Center, on October 7, 2017.
