Garden club helps provide for Palmer Home for Children

The DeSoto Civic Garden Club shared Thanksgiving Blessings with Palmer Home for Children on Nov. 10.  Club members purchased hams and turkeys for each of the six cottages and two traditional homes.  Each home received a turkey and a ham.  

Club member Toni Thompson delivered the meat along with a gift card for each family to complete their holiday feast. 

DeSoto Civic Garden Club has for many years supported Palmer Home as one of their philanthropy projects.
