Plant giveaway at Poteet FUMC

On April 22, Poteet First United Methodist Church held a successful Plant Giveaway Day.

Their goal of giving away 400 veggie plants got a boost when community members joined their church family to donate additional plants. According to Wendy Hilburn’s Wesley Nurse accounting sheets of about 70 cars and 125-150 families, they distributed: squash- 204, tomatoes- 120, pepper plants- 182, eggplant- 62 (all donated that week) and herbs- 14. That equals a total of 582!

“It was amazing and everyone was filled with the joy of making a difference,” said Pastor Dave Collett.
