A big ‘thank you’ to Project Giving Tree volunteers told

Thanks to generous donations and dedicated volunteers, Farragut’s Project Giving Tree furnished holiday gifts to 253 area children.

Organizers wanted to thank a number of partners for helping meet their goals.

“In addition to our community donors, Project Giving Tree would not be possible without the support of our Farragut schools administrators, teachers and staff,” including “School Board (5th District) representative Susan Horn and the boards of the FPS PTO, FIS PTO, FMS PTO and FHS PTSO,” listed a statement from the PGT team of Jelena Browning, KCS social worker; Jessica Barksdale, FPS PTO; Christy Davis and Nikki Hickman, FIS PTO; Mary Greene and Kelly Hasan, FMS PTO; Kelly Neal, treasurer; and LeighAnna Colgrove, FHS PTSO.

“Special thanks to Concord United Methodist Church, Compassion Ministries Inc., FHS cheerleading, FHS Dugout Club, FHS Future Farmers of America, Cindy Sheldon, Town of Farragut and Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church for their generous sponsorships.”
