Can I use "hand in" instead of "pitch in" here?
"Pitch in" means to join in or help in doing a task or activity. "Hand in" is usually used to mean giving something to an authority or responsible person. I think the term that could be used to replace "pitch in" in this sentence would be "give/lend a hand" Ex: I tried to pitch in but there wasn't much to do. Ex: I tried to lend a hand but there wasn't much to do.
