Christmas came early for dozens of kids this year. On Tiger Toy DistributionFriday, they received presents collected earlier this month from the Tiger Toy Drive. Helping to distribute the toys were Mayor Jim Strickland, Memphis Tigers Basketball Coach Penny Hardaway and University of Memphis athletes.

 “This is what it’s all about,” Hardaway said. “It’s about giving back. We love you guys and we want you to have a great Christmas.”

“Memphians are very giving and loving people,” Mayor Strickland said. “I’m proud to be a part of this.”

Families also enjoyed snacks, refreshments, and pictures with Tigers' players during the event.
