Food Drive 2019

Once again, we have rallied to another record-year for our contributions to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Results for this year’s Food Drive include the following totals:

  • $28,787.41; and
  • 6,805.3 pounds of non-perishables

We cannot THANK YOU enough! Once again, your outpouring of generosity has exceeded our expectations. Our collective financial support, alone, will provide 143,937 meals to our neighbors in need this holiday season. And, that number does not include the 6,805 lbs. of food that we also contributed.

Toys for Tots Campaign

Toys For Tots

PACE is partnering with the Carnegie Mellon Campus Police to collect toys for children this holiday season and donate them to Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them as Christmas gifts to children in the local area who would otherwise not receive one.

Can’t get off campus to buy a toy but still want to donate? You can shop from our Amazon wishlist and toys will be delivered directly to our office. Please be sure to include your name so we can confirm with you that we've received your gift.

New unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the SLICE Office or one of several other locations around campus. More locations can be found here!

Donations are accepted now through December 13th!

If you have any further questions, feel free to email slice@andrew.cmu.edu .
