For the third consecutive year, the Pitt Greensburg women's basketball team volunteered to help the Salvation Army with Project Bundle-Up.

On Oct. 22, players and coaches helped to volunteer for the event at the Hempfield Plaza Wal-Mart, explaining vouchers to families, taking children and senior citizens on personal shopping sprees and aiding cashiers to bag purchases.

Each year, the Salvation Army joins with local merchants to raise money for Project Bundle-Up, which provides needy and disabled senior citizens and disadvantaged children with winter clothes.
