MLK 2020: Project Vitamin C

Join us for one of the first picks of the citrus season at Sahuaro Ranch park as part of Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend of Service. Volunteers are needed to help pick citrus from trees at Saguaro Ranch park. Fruit will be collected in large bins and donated to local food banks, to help feed the community.

Volunteers will pick fruit from trees manually or using fruit gleaners and haul to designated areas. Long sleeved shirts, long pants, closed-toed shoes, and clothes that you don't mind getting dirty are recommended. 

Each volunteer will be required to fill out a waiver from the City of Glendale in order to participate in the event. 

Fun and family friendly, minimum age 8. Individuals under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteer's ages 16 & 17 who wish to participate without a parent/guardian must bring a signed Youth Waiver Form with them to the project.

A limited number of “fruit pickers/gleaners” are available, if you have one please bring it with you. Be sure to mark your name and phone number on any supplies you bring to the project. Thank you for participating and we look forward to seeing you at the project!

By signing up for volunteer opportunities and not attending, you may be depriving someone else the chance to participate and the volunteer opportunity of much-needed support. We look forward to seeing you at the project!
