Police Officers, Phillies & Santa Claus Deliver Toys to PAL Kids

Local police officers and the Phillies teamed up to make sure this holiday is one to remember for children attending the Ford PAL Center in South Philadelphia. Hundreds of toys, many of which were donated by fans during the Phillies Ballgirls Christmas in July Toy Drive, were distributed to the kids by Santa Claus and the Phillie Phanatic, as well as Phillies Alumnus Mickey Morandini, Director of Public Affairs Scott Palmer and the Phillies Ballgirls. Phillies Charities, Inc. also presented a $15,000 donation to support the Ford Pal Center's efforts in helping local children in need. The event was part of the team's annual Season of Giving.
