Fresh Fruit Friday has been a great success! Please help keep it going!
Adult volunteers are needed on Thursday and Friday every week for about an hour.
Here's how to help:
Thursday: The fruit will already be ordered from Sprouts. We need at least two people (it will take two cars) to drive there to pick it up. *We cannot pay for it ahead of time, so whomever does the pick up will need to pay for it and submit a check request for reimbursement. It will probably be around $600. The order will be ready for pick up between 8:00 and 9:00am, but you decide what time you want to do this, as long as you get it all delivered before 4:00pm. You'll need to coordinate with the other person that's signed up for Thursday, so it's helpful if you list your mobile number on this sign up. You both drive to the H campus. Ask the office aides to come out and help unload about 1/3 of the fruit (we'll tell you how much). There is a dolly in the Wildcat Den to help with this. You'll put the fruit on the cart which is stored in the Den. Then you'll both drive to the L campus and ask the office aides to come help unload the rest of the fruit. The fruit cart and another dolly are stored in a closet that's between the stairs and the mailroom. That's it!
Friday: Arrive about 8:00 am. Get the fruit into the baskets, wheel the cart out to the foyer. The kids start coming in at 8:15. Be the smiling, cheerful face that encourages everyone to take some free fruit and have a great day!
L campus - A portion of the fruit (we'll tell you how much) is designated to go down to the band area and the athletics/weight room area because those kids are there early and they won't be coming in the front doors with everyone else. At 9:00, put the cart back into the closet. Take any leftover fruit to the Wildcat Den.
H campus - At 9:00, put the cart back. Any leftover fruit can be left in the Wildcat Den for kids to take home for the weekend.
This is a real "feel good" opportunity. You'll be glad you made the time for it.
