On the 25th and 31st of April 2012, a homeowner in Bradbury let Fruit For All come pick her grove of tangerines and avocados. Over the two weekends we managed to pick 4,871 pounds of tangerines and 736 pounds of Avocados for a total of 5,607 pounds of fruit. We are so grateful to her for allowing us to do this. So many people have had fresh tangerines and avocados because of her.
After 17 years of directing the Foothill Unity Center, Joan Whitenack will be retiring at the end of the month. The center honors her June 28th at a retirement party.
Fruit For All would like to extend our gratitude to Mrs. Whitenack for her support of our non-profit, harvest organization. She has been so instrumental in the development of our group and our relationship with the Foothill Unity Center. We wish her the best!
