SUNRISE, Fla - The Florida Panthers announced today that they will host four holiday drives throughout the months of November and December including a Food Drive, Toy Drives, Shoe Drive and Clothing Drive.
On Monday, Nov. 7, the Panthers will partner with Harvest Drive for a food drive. Harvest Drive assists more than 2000 food insecure families during the Thanksgiving Season. To support these efforts, all Panther fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the JetBlue Tarmac at the front of the BB&T Center prior to the Panthers hosting the Lightning at 7:30 p.m. All fans who donate a non-perishable food item will receive an exclusive Panthers poster.
On Thursday, Dec. 8 and Saturday, Dec. 10, the Panthers will partner with both Caravan of Joy and Toys for Tots to host two Toy Drives. Fans are asked to bring new and unwrapped toys to the JetBlue tarmac prior to each game.
On Tuesday, Dec. 20, Sole Relief will partner with the Panthers to host a Shoe Drive and fans are asked to bring new or gently used shoes. Sole Relief is a not-for-profit organization that collects shoes and sends them to underprivileged children across the world.
On Thursday, Dec. 22, the Panthers will partner with Salvation Army to hold a Clothing Drive where fans are encouraged to bring new or gently used clothing to the JetBlue Tarmac pre-game.
"We're excited to be partnering with all of these great organizations this holiday season," said Executive Director of the Florida Panthers Foundation Lauren Simone. "We hope that these donations will help families throughout South Florida during the holidays."
