Visions of Sugar Plums Wish List – Sherman Denison Herald Democrat

For 19 Christmases, children and teens in the Pottsboro Independent School District have received nutritious, pre-packaged breakfast and lunch food provided by Visions of Sugarplums volunteers during winter break.  
Again this year, the VOS will provide food for the holidays to about 125 PISD students.
VOS also provides food packs most weekends of the school year to PISD families who need a little extra help with meals on Saturdays and Sundays.  Food packs include enough food for seven meals per child over the weekend.
Visions of Sugarplums is a non-profit organization, and contributions are tax-deductible.
VOS is located at 501 Spur 316, Suite 104, Pottsboro, TX 75076, in Preston Plaza.  Contributions may be mailed to that address.
For more information or to arrange delivery or pick-up of any of the following items,  please contact Virgie Holbrook at 903-821-9243 or
