The DeSoto Civic Garden Club (DCGC) and the Hernando Optimist Club are two organizations who contributed funds to meet the school needs of the children at Palmer Home in Hernando.
At the beginning of school in August for the past several years, the DCGC has provided backpacks for the children. This year, the Hernando Optimist Club has joined them in providing the necessary school supplies to ensure a successful beginning for the 2021-2022 school year.
As Palmer Home receives no state or federal funding, their operation relies solely on donor generosity. Throughout the year, DCGC seeks to continue to contribute to Palmer Home as one of its many philanthropy projects.
The DeSoto Civic Garden Club is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc., and The Garden Clubs of Mississippi, Inc., Hills and Delta District. .
