CHARLOTTE, NC (PANTHERS) — The Carolina Panthers have donated 1,300 pairs of game-worn and practice-worn pants to 23 high schools in North and South Carolina through the team’s uniform grant program.
The packages consist of white, silver and black game pants and white practice pants used by the Panthers. Valued at $150,000, the pants by Nike have been expertly maintained and are in excellent condition.
“The Carolina Panthers are thrilled to provide this opportunity to schools in our region, especially when the need for resources is at a premium but adequate funding may be a challenge,” said Peter Vacho, the Carolina Panthers military & football outreach manager. “Having the basic necessities, such as practice gear, can go a long way in helping school athletic departments make ends meet.”
