Destin Pantry Now
Olin Wolfgram, a seventh grader at Liza Jackson Preparatory School in Mary Esther forewent the beach over spring break to donate and plant an orange tree to Food For Thought through Trees on the Coast, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving Okaloosa and Walton Counties' tree canopy and enhancing our beauty through planting, conservation, and education. Thank you Olin and Alan French with Trees on the Coast!!
Based on data from 2015-16 school year and summer, FFT estimated over 6,000 total volunteer hours. What does that mean for the backpack program? It is like having 3 extra full-time employees for the year, at no cost!! This information is based off of serving 1,200 students in 2015-16. Projections calculate the number of students we serve will be double from the 2015-16 statistics to have a total of 2,400 students in 27 schools. With the new students comes a higher demand for volunteers; in short, we need volunteers!!
New Volunteer Orientation is today, March 22 and will be the last group session until this summer. Please plan to attend and bring a friend!!
