Raintree Children and Family Services received a generous contribution from the members of the Palm Vista Garden Club of Kenner. Joan Ingram, Raintree board member, accepted the donation at the January club meeting held at the home of Harriet Haworth.
The garden club selected Raintree as their Christmas philantrophy project for 2013. The nonprofit organization has provided care for vulnerable children in the New Orleans area since 1926. The organization trains foster parents, provides a safe home for abused and neglected young girls and places children in loving homes. Also, it provides case management for infants with disabilities through Family Support Coordination.
Madge Schexaydre gave the horticulture report on freeze damage control and the members enjoyed bonco. Co-hostesses for the meeting were Jean Mitchell, Sheila Spring, Mary Penton, Debbie McShan and Judy Soignet.
