Over the past year, I've received dozens of requests for fruit donations. My favorite reply: "Fruit grows on trees. Let's find a tree and harvest some fruit. It really is that easy."
Last week, Westwood Elementary PFC, Vice President, Katrina Fehring contacted "the lemon lady" to ask if I can donate fresh oranges to their Diabetes Walk-a-Thon. With only a few days until the event, I brainstormed in a hurry. I sent press releases out to local blogs and media. I contacted fruit tree owners who donated last year.
To my surprise, I received a telephone call today from a fruit tree owner with an abundance of ripe oranges. One thing led to another in the Lemon Lady Urban Fruit Matching Game.
Congratulations to Rotarian Edi Birsan, Westwood Elementary PFC, VP Katrina Fehring and children for being available on this hot (spring) day to harvest oranges for this worthy cause. Thank you also goes out to Dean, Orange Tree Donor from Concord. A coordinated effort yielded a sweet donation!
Cheers, Oranges and Smiles.
