Santa’s sleigh is circling the City and has been stopping at several PAL Centers for holiday parties! On Thursday, 12/1, Tucker PAL welcomed volunteers from Verizon and Verizon Wireless to help kick off PAL’s holiday season. Last Tuesday, Bluford PAL enjoyed a special visit from Adopt-a-Center partner, Lincoln Financial Foundation, and on Thursday, Tacony PAL hosted volunteers from Adopting Partner Lockheed Martin to continue celebrating the season. Volunteer representatives from both organizations joined each center to oversee arts and crafts projects, distribute snacks and assist Santa in handing out gifts.

On Friday, 12/9, The United States Army visited Harrowgate PAL to ensure the holiday spirit thrives for underprivileged youngsters in Philadelphia. Nearly 150 children attended, all of whom opened gifts provided by the Army. The Army has been supporting various PAL Centers in Philadelphia for the past two years by collecting toys and distributing them to youth through PAL holiday parties.

PAL thanks last week’s holiday party sponsors Verizon, Verizon Wireless, Lincoln Financial Foundation, Lockheed Martin and the United States Army for supporting PAL during the holiday season! Check back next week for a recap of this week’s parties!
