Fruit delivery helps Rotary causes

The Rotary Club of Nanaimo North is offering up a little California sunshine in the form of citrus fruit to brighten up these dark, winter days.

Tree-ripened  navel oranges and pink grapefruits will be delivered directly to Nanaimo by the end of November with sale proceeds used by Rotary to support local charities, community projects and youth programs.

Residents can buy the fruit for themselves or buy and donate to a deserving charity including Haven House, the Salvation Army, Nanaimo Youth Services Association, Nanaimo 7-10 Club, Nanaimo Womens’ Centre and Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank.

Cost of the fruit is $40 for an 18-kilogram box, $25 for nine kilograms or $45 for a mixed box of oranges and grapefruits.

The order deadline is Nov. 22. For more information, please call Jim Turley at 250-754-6344 or e-mail jim@turleysflorist.com.
