The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club recently sponsored the “Elderly Care Gift Basket Drive” for local personal care and nursing facilities in the Punxsutawney area.

With the help of the community, the Groundhog Club was able to provide over 250 gifts for local facilities.

There were three days of deliveries, and items included arts and crafts, books, puzzles, pillows, hygiene products, DVDs and CDs, and much more.

The Groundhog Club said it could not be happier and would like to thank the entire community for its support during this holiday season.

Pictured here are Tom Uberti, the Big Windmaker, and John Griffiths, one of Phil’s co-handlers, preparing to deliver items for the drive.
