The students and staff at McClellan Elementary School presented Project Bundle-Up with an amazing gift to support their efforts in keeping children and elderly warm this winter.

Fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Thomas, spearheaded a penny war competition among all of the classrooms to raise money for WTAE-TV Project Bundle-Up.
McClellan presented a check to the director of Project Bundle-Up, Kira Kellner, in the amount of $2,860.44! The money will buy coats, boots, and mittens for children and the elderly and will provide enough warm clothes for 60 people.
Katelyn Sykes of WTAE-TV stopped by the school-wide assembly on December 22, 2016 to capture the excitement. The top-five homeroom teachers with the most donations were lined up in chairs with buckets held over their heads. The winning homeroom teacher was doused with a bucket of confetti. Mrs. Thomas and her fourth grade class raised the most money - $387.18 in just one week.
