Women's basketball takes part in United Way Day of Action


The Pitt-Bradford women’s basketball team took part in the United Way Day of Action on Saturday, Sept.28, in a morning filled with assisting the city of Bradford in its charity event.  

The team began the day by digging up trees for the Salvation Army at a few different locations around town.

The players then took part in the “Stuff the Truck” event at Tops Friendly Market. Players gathered with signs in front of the store to hand to customers as they went inside to shop. On the sign was a list of items that could be purchased to assist in filling the truck with canned goods for the needy.

The last events that took place were painting and gardening at Grace Lutheran Church. Players painted classrooms inside the building as well as parts of the outside. A handful of players were outside digging up weeds and planting to assist the church in sprucing up their garden.

“I am so proud of my team for their hard work and efforts in participating in the United Way Day of Action for the second consecutive year. We strongly believe in being an active member of our Bradford community and doing things to give back in a positive way,” said head coach Patrick Daniel.

The Panthers begin practice in the coming weeks to prepare for the 2013-14 season.
