Persell Girls Basketball Team “Rings the Bell” for the Salvation Army

Persell Middle School’s Girls Basketball Team recently “rang the bell” for The Salvation Army at Chautauqua Mall. Each year, Coach Mary Maggio and her team volunteer their time to help give back to their community and learn the valuable experience that they need to take time out of their busy schedules to help the less fortunate.

“I want my student-athletes to know that they are an essential members of our community,” said Mrs. Maggio. “They can make a difference in someone’s life. By helping others, they can learn more about themselves.”
