If you have a tree with more fruit than you can use, fill out our online tree donor form, and we’ll try to get a crew of volunteers together to help you harvest it. Please give us at least 2-3 weeks notice before the fruit is ripe to be sure that we have enough time to coordinate your harvest.
If you are able to pick your own fruit and bring it to Good Cheer, that would help us target our volunteer efforts where they are most needed. Click here to see our donation guidelines.
