Club member “Plant Lady” Elaine Pittman has raised an additional $1500 through her plant sales and presented the check to Christian Social Services Director Jacquie Petet to be distributed to the needy in Land O’Lakes and the surrounding areas. Families will be provided with food baskets for holiday meals, clothing vouchers, medical and dental, and other services.
GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club has outdone itself during this joyful holiday season with its generosity in giving to the needy and volunteering hundreds, if not thousands, of hours to provide for those less fortunate and food insecure.
President Karin D’Amico and Chair Linda Mitchell presented a club donation of $400 to Beth Ross (center), who founded “Blanket Tampa Bay” to serve the large homeless population in the Tampa area. The clubwomen also collected enough blankets and warm clothing to fill a large SUV which will be distributed to those living on the streets on Christmas Eve.
