Citrus Sharers Picking Season Underway

James Harrald

Happy New Year and welcome to another season of gleaning fruit for the Sun Lakes community! The picking season began on Saturday, Feb. 1, and will be ending on Monday, March 2. We only pick on Saturdays and Mondays from 8 a.m. until noon.

If you were picked in the past, you should be getting a call from your area captain. If you changed your phone number, please contact Donna immediately. Citrus Central will be in the same spot at 25825 99th Drive, Sun Lakes, AZ. Thank you again to George and Christy for letting us take over the garage space each year!

If you are not sure you are on the database, or would like to be added, please call Donna at (480) 276-2898. You can also pick your own and drop it off at the Citrus Central during February on Saturdays and Mondays between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. If you want to help PICK, email James at [email protected]

All the fruit gleaned is donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank. We have partnered with them for years, and they are very grateful for the bountiful crop we send them each year. We are consistently sending them 60 tons, yes tons, each year.
