The Starr’s Mill varsity basketball squads again came together to help a needy family. Peachtree City Christian Church selected a family in need of assistance during the holidays and the Panthers jumped into action as they do every year. The team gathers for a special dinner, then heads off to do their shopping, with the players donating their own money towards the buying of the gifts. Thanks to the donations of the players, they were able to buy more than $400 worth of gifts for the children, as well as more than $150 in gift cards. The Panther seniors delivered the gifts personally.
The McIntosh football team might be in offseason mode, but there is always time to give. The Chiefs joined the Peacthree City Police Department for their “Light Up the Night” Toy Drive. Coach Lee Belknap and his players helped out at the Peachtree City Wal-Mart, collecting toys and monetary donations for Toys for Tots.
The varsity and JV basketball teams at Landmark Christian have teamed up to help Christian City. The War Eagle hoops squads collected close to 50 gifts for the children at Christian City at their second annual “Landmark Never Stops Giving” Christmas party. Christian City is a non-profit, non-denominational organization providing ministry and care to children, the elderly, and the infirm in nearby Union City.
