The holiday season is super busy for most people. The Lady Panthers took a break from the hustle and bustle to make the season a little brighter for some lucky young ladies with the help of the Chester County Head Start Program. The Lady Panthers teams hopped on the opportunity to help and sponsored 20 awesome girls. Hopefully they will become future Panthers and do the same for others.

The collections came pouring in and turned an eight-seater van to a one person sleigh.

The turn out was awesome. In fact when we went to drop off the haul, the ladies at the Head Start office had to call for backup to form an assembly line to get all the gifts upstairs to the drop off point. We almost ran out of room in the office, but I’m guessing that’s a good problem to have.

The room was full so these presents ended up forming a line outside

Even though we just finished and Christmas hasn’t come yet, we are all anxious to do it all over again. I’ll even take the back ache of lugging all those gifts up the flight of steps. Especially the super sized gift Tara W. and her family provided. And yes Anne we re-wrapped it!

Everyone was dying to know what was in the package the size of a New York City Apartment.

Hopefully the girls are excited when they wake up Christmas morning and see all the awesome gifts their Secret Santa’s left them.

Thank you to all the players, family, and friends that made this a super success. Hopefully we can all do it again next season.

Happy Holidays from the Lady Panthers!
