Florida grapefruits and oranges for sale! Support my kids’ wonderful school

Simcha Fisher - published on 10/23/15

As you may know, my younger kids attend an excellent rural charter school. We love it to pieces, but are horrible slackers when it comes to fundraising and volunteering. Can you help us? We’re selling lovely, juicy Florida citrus fruits, shipped to you the same day they’re picked.

It’s a very small school, so even a few extra orders makes a noticeable difference in my kids’ classrooms. In NH, charter schools recently won a legislative victory, and our school will be getting more funding starting next year. Even with this increase, they still receive significantly less per pupil than the public schools do. They do so much more with so much less.

If you’re local, you can have them shipped to the school and I’ll deliver them to you. If you’re not local, Florida Indian River Groves will ship your order directly to you (anywhere in the continental US). (The prices are higher for non-local delivery, because they include shipping costs.)

UPDATE: A few people have let me know that the links are not working properly. Sorry about that!
Here is the place to order online:

and if you need the school’s ID number, it’s 403837

If you were thinking of ordering some fruit this year, please consider doing it through this fundraiser! We buy them ourselves, and the fruit is sweet and luscious. This would make a nice gift, too. Thank you.
