Adopt a Panther is a volunteer based Christmas initiative similar to Angel Tree. The program provides gifts for families who are in need during the holiday season. It also allows us to identify families at risk to further assist them throughout the year. Last year with the help of our volunteers Paschal Harvest Project provided gifts for 36 families, a total of 127 children and teens right in our pyramid. As the holiday season quickly approaches we are starting to recruit for volunteers to adopt families this year. With your help we can bring hope to families this holiday season! If you wish to volunteer or would like more information please email Maria Manks at for more details. 
Extended sizes are now available in our new long sleeve shirt.
