“This year we really tried to work with the families to create service sites and projects that were really honoring the legacies and work and contributions of those who we lost and making sure that something that they really cared about is also something that we can continue to work on and inspire people to continue to get involved in and be a part of,” said Julie Mallis, the executive director of Repair The World Pittsburgh.READ MORE: Man Gets Up To 20 Years In Father's Murder
