The Friends of Dean Park, Inc. (FODP) was accepting donations at Walmart on Saturday, November 1 and 2, 2019 which is done quarterly. FODP gives a chance ticket to anyone who makes a donation of $1.00 or more. Above is Henry Perry who won the gift basket which included a 14lb. turkey and about $70. worth of groceries that was donated by members. Ironically, he was the only donor who said to the volunteers that he was definitely going to win when he made his donation.

If you were unable to make your donation, please mail to: Friends of Dean Park, Inc., P. O. Box 365, Louisville, MS 39339. FODP is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable organization. All donations are tax deductible. Membership is $15./yearly or $200./Life. Funds are used for programs, plants, plant food, tools and operational expenses. We also provide refreshments, along with Walmart, when we have Beautifications Days. FODP expressed gratitude to the Black Girls Read Group who faithfully does volunteer work at Dean Park to receive their required Community Service Hours. Other youth groups are welcomed to volunteer by calling Elmetra Patterson, 510-672-2106.
