Are you a FruitGuys customer that is closed for the holidays? Why not give something back to those in need. Instead of putting your order on hold, our Donate-A-Crate program lets you send your fresh fruit to a worthy non-profit organization in your area providing services to people in need during the holiday season. In 2008, FruitGuys clients donated more than 180 crates to food-banks and programs for families in need between the Thanksgiving and New Years holidays. This Thanksgiving, 47 crates were donated to organizations such as Women Against Abuse in Philadelphia, where donated fruit supplemented breakfast and lunch. Family House in San Francisco told us that parents and children were able “to grab a piece of fruit on their way to and from the hospital.” Philabundance reminded us that "Fresh fruits and vegetables are often the first food items cut from people’s diets when they have to reduce the grocery budget. Philabundance is committed to driving hunger and malnutrition from the Delaware Valley and values the ongoing support of The Fruitguys and others in the community in this effort.” Crates also went to The Riley Center, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Project Open Hand, Yeah!, and the Sophia Project in the San Francisco Bay Area; to City Harvest on the East Coast; and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
