Photo 1Pitt-Greensburg Residence Life staff will be raising money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kid’s Sake as their community service initiative this semester.

A pancake breakfast fundraiser was held by Residence Life on Feb. 13 at the First Baptist Church. The food for the breakfast was donated by Chartwells Dining Service and the Pitt-Greensburg Residence Life staff raised a total of $770.50.

In addition, bowling-pin-shaped papers will be on sale for one dollar up until the Bowling for Kid’s Sake event at the Community Assistant desks of each residence hall. R e s i d e n t s can sign and hang their b o w l i n g pin in the residence hall they purchased the pin from. There will also be spare-change collections happening during these times.

“This is the first year that we’ve approached volunteering as an entire staff,” Brian Root, Assistant Director of Housing and Residence Life said. “We used to have a lot of hodgepodge activities going on at the same time, but we figured the staff would have more fun if we all worked together.”

Any Pitt-Greensburg student may join the Pitt-Greensburg Residence Life staff bowling team for the Bowl for Kid’s Sake event on March 19 at 3 p.m. at Hillview Lanes in Greensburg. Residents may sign up for this event online at and are required to raise a minimum of $30 to attend this event.

If residents are unable to participate in any of the above events, they are urged to recommend the event to friends, family, and classmates. The Residence Life staff aims to raise $1,000 for the Bowl for Kid’s Sake events. Many residence halls plan to host individual fundraising events for residents.
