The Carolina Panthers will support healthy active lifestyles for Greenville, NC children as part of the organization’s inaugural “Keep Pounding Day” community service initiative on Wednesday, May 1st. On that date, the team and its staff will provide 25 service projects to communities across North and South Carolina with both corporate and community partners in a symbolic tribute to the Panthers 25th season. The team will perform service projects in the areas of beautification, education and hunger relief as well as youth health and wellness.

Pre-selected members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plains will enjoy Play 60-style physical activities at the Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium at East Carolina University. Panthers staff will be joined by local volunteers.

“The Carolina Panthers are excited to announce the organization’s Keep Pounding Day of community service,” said Panthers Owner David Tepper. “We are looking forward to a day of service for our region’s communities as a sincere thank you for the amazing support we receive from Panthers fans across North and South Carolina. May 1st was selected for the inaugural effort because the number 51 was the jersey of former Panthers player and Coach Sam Mills.”
