Most people have that one person in their life that "has everything" and makes shopping for a birthday or holiday very challenging. The project Bundle Up auction just might help you with that problem, while also giving you the great feeling that comes from helping others. All items up for bid have been donated by generous sponsors and all proceeds help to ensure that kids and seniors are kept warm during our sometimes harsh and unpredictable Western Pennsylvania winters.
For over 30 years, the WTAE project Bundle-Up Auction has played a critical role in providing hundreds of thousands of coats, hats, mittens and boots for needy children and seniors across Western Pennsylvania. Founded in 1986 by WTAE Channel 4 and The Salvation Army, project Bundle-Up has raised more than 13 million dollars and served more than 270,000 needy kids and seniors with new winter outerwear. The annual auction is one of the primary ways that The Salvation Army and WTAE's project Bundle-Up raises funds.
Celebrating over 150 years of global service as both a church and a social service organization, The Salvation Army began in London, England in 1865. Today, it provides critical services in 128 countries worldwide. The 28-county Western Pennsylvania Division serves thousands of needy families through a wide variety of support services.
