A group of National Honor Society members and Supt. Dr. Randal Lutz will be on TV on Friday as they raise money for WTAE’s Project Bundle Up.

Fifteen NHS students over the age of 18 are traveling to WTAE studios to answer phone calls and take pledges during the Project Bundle Up telethon, started by former WTAE meteorologist Joe Denardo.

Project Bundle Up provides new winter coats, hats, scarves, mittens, and boots to thousands of disadvantaged Western Pennsylvanian children and senior citizens. The annual telethon has raised more than $13.4 million and served over 267,000 low-income citizens over 30 years.

Baldwin’s participation began when Lutz decided to get involved and contacted NHS sponsor Katie Temme to see if students also wanted to help.

“I am really excited to do this,” Temme said. “I feel it’s a great opportunity to help the community in a service project that is such a wonderful Pittsburgh tradition.”

The students are also excited to have the opportunity to participate in the telethon.

“It’s an honor,” senior Trey Luffy said. “It’s one of the biggest charity events in Pittsburgh.”

NHS students said the most important part is making a difference.

“I wanted to take part in helping out the city,” senior Bella Rossa said. “It’s really important and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

The Baldwin contingent will participate  in the WTAE Project Bundle Up on Friday on Channel 4 Action News from noon to 2 p.m.
