For the second year in a row, members of the Pictona Garden Club came together to collect food items to help families in need have a delicious Thanksgiving feast. Led by the efforts of Club member, Shirley Rose, gardeners contributed items such as scalloped potatoes, stuffing, brownie mix, cream of chicken, cranberry sauce and more, as well as supermarket gift cards for the purchase of the main course: the Thanksgiving turkey!
The organization sponsoring the food drive is the Volusia Thanksgiving Basket Brigade, which organizes the donation of Thanksgiving meals every year to over 3,500 families in Volusia County. The Pictona Garden Club filled and donated five boxes, which will feed five families this Thanksgiving. We are proud to have once again participated in this awesome event!
