Citrus Sunday, May 3, San Fernando Valley

I received an email (thanks Astra) about a really cool event taking place tomorrow, Sunday, May 3 called "Citrus Sunday." This is apparently the 4th annual event. Its a volunteer fruit drive to pick thousands of pounds of fresh citrus to benefit needy San Fernando families.

Volunteers will pick oranges, grapefruit and other citrus fruit from trees in their yards or at picking locations and drop them off at participating San Fernando Valley Fire Stations.

For a list of drop-off locations and information on how to get involved check out this site:

If you have fruit you want to donate here's what they ask you to do:
• Pick the oranges, grapefruits or other citrus from the trees in your yard up to three days in advance.
• Wash them and put them in plastic bags

Sunday, May 3, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
