The Adopt-a-Class fundraiser originally scheduled for September 5, 2020, has been indefinitely postponed by the Food Lion Community Relations team. Acting on guidance from health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), solicitations at the stores have been suspended through December, 2020. This fundraiser will be rescheduled when it can be safely administered. We thank all the members who planned to participate.

Pampered Chef is the premier direct seller of high quality kitchen tools and products. Quick tips and powerful tools can fuel a faster, no-fuss gourmet cooking experience for family meals and entertaining. Hosted by Adopt-a-Class volunteer and Pampered Chef consultant Karen Forsyth, our first Open House Party (November, 2019) featured product displays, door prizes, gift ideas, and tasty food samples. The event was enjoyable and an excellent fundraiser. A percentage of
all sales was donated to Adopt-a-Class TN.
A second event will be scheduled later this year.
