MARTIN COUNTY --
The Piper's Landing Women's Golf Association recently concluded its annual holiday sharing drive, and the results will go a long way toward helping House of Hope families in need.
The leaders of the drive, Doris Medwin and Nancy Lindeberg, set up a Thanksgiving tree in the Piper's Landing clubhouse to prompt their fellow members to give. The tree was decorated with tags that members could fill out to provide a donation to House of Hope.
The little tree turned out to be a big success, as the drive raised $2,600. That money will be used by House of Hope to purchase gift cards for selected client families so they can shop for food, toys, clothing or household items this holiday season.
Residents of Piper's Landing Yacht & Country Club in Palm City, support House of Hope year-round through food drives, volunteerism and participation in events.
Additionally, House of Hope board member Elaine Matts is a Piper's Landing resident.
The community also has many generous donors, including residents Jone, Mik and Gina Panavas, who hosted a party last January that raised more than $5,000 for the agency.
House of Hope is a nonprofit agency that provides food, clothing, case management and financial assistance to Martin County residents in need. The agency is Martin County's largest provider of food to the hungry and serves as a safety net for thousands of families, working people and senior citizens who are struggling through hard times.
