Alive with the Spirit of Giving

This season has been nothing short of spectacular for families within the PAL community. During the holidays, generous individuals, corporations and philanthropists do their best to ensure that everyone is able to experience holiday joy. The same holds true for PAL’s wonderful donors; a few of PAL’s sponsors, in the spirit of giving, are making the holidays happier for many children and families in the Philadelphia community.

On Monday, November 21, 2011, Charming Shoppes, Inc., in a magnificent display of generosity, arrived at the Cozen PAL Center with an 18-wheeler. Inside were 972 boxes that contained a total of 4,000 new winter coats, which will be distributed to PAL youngsters throughout the city. Charming Shoppes, through their Keeping Kids Warm Program, delivers thousands of new coats to organizations throughout the United States each year. Thankfully, they always keep PAL in mind while doing so. In fact, Charming Shoppes increased their donation by 1,000 coats from last year!

Verizon Wireless again showed exactly how much they invest in the community yesterday, when they delivered close to 100 turkeys and all the Thanksgiving trimmings to PAL. Verizon’s generosity will allow dozens of PAL families to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday the right way – with a turkey, gravy, vegetables, stuffing and more.

It is through generous donations, such as these, that the less fortunate are able to share in holiday joy. PAL is proud to partner with great community leaders, such as Charming Shoppes, Inc. and Verizon Wireless. We wish all a safe, happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
