This Year's Project Bundle-Up

It's that time of year again!!

Yesterday afternoon, the Penguins players paired up with middle-school children selected by the Carnegie Salvation Army for the annual "Penguins Personal Shopping Day." Each year, the Penguins organization along with Dick's Sporting Goods and the Salvation Army join together to make this a successful event and memorable occasion for every child involved!

But what makes this such a special day (and one the kids will never forget) is the extra effort the players put in with the child they're paired with. Read for yourself!!

Malkin bent down to help his shopping partner try on some new boots, while Marc-Andre Fleury used a long pole to help a child reach a jacket she had picked out.


Max Talbot accompanied young Nicholas Grimes on his shopping day.

“He was funny,” Grimes said. “He was so nice to hang out with.”

“When you have a chance to keep the kids warm and it’s something the kids can’t really afford, all this clothing, it’s nice for them to have a chance to keep warm,” Talbot said.

In addition to clothing, Talbot couldn’t resist getting Grimes a special souvenir of the occasion.

“I got him a little Talbot bobble head with the Stanley Cup and I signed it,” Talbot said. “I told him it was the only one signed in the world, so it’s pretty precious.”

“I’m probably going to keep it on my dresser,” said Grimes.

As the event wound down a group photo of players, children and coordinators was snapped, and Sidney Crosby made sure to shake each child’s hand on his way out.

“I think it’s fun,” Crosby said. “We’ve done this for a few years now. I think it’s something we all look forward to. It’s a lot of laughs and all the kids are so excited.”

“We all get a kick out of it.”
