Optimist pecans will be arriving in Pickens County the first week of November. These pecan halves are fresh and are guaranteed to be this year’s crop. The price of a 12 oz. bag of pecans remains $8.00 with no tax!
All money raised by the club through this fundraiser is used to meet their mission of “bringing out the best in kids”. The club supports Pickens County children organizations such as North Georgia Boys and Girls Clubs, Pickens Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy, the Joy House, Pickens County Library summer reading program, the Hope House, Pickens County Young Life, Prevent Child Abuse Pickens, the Youth Leadership Program, Youth Enrichment Program and more.

Employees of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital can also purchase them on site.
