Our Mission Explained:        

Harvest CROPS depend on financial and material donations to support our mission. With your help we can continue feeding low-income families and seniors with residential fruit that would otherwise spoil if no one were to volunteer harvest a few hours of his or her time.

We average 4 cents for each pound, about three to four oranges.  Fruit on the table is possible because of the public's support. With your financial generosity, we are able to harvest and transport to food distribution centers, such as public schools and senior centers.

The founder uses his personal 92 Ford F150  truck for transportation of volunteers and harvested fruit. Please make a donation today.

Harvest CROPS 501(c)(3) non-profit registration provides tax-deductions on all donations.  We are asking for the community's support with our sustaining expenses.  Our immediate goal is securing an annual budget of:


Please be a part of our free service team with a tax-deduction contribution -- Ask how to sponsor as a business or individual.

In return, Harvest CROPS provides about 50,000 pounds annually of free fresh residential fruit to needy families and seniors .   Our primary expenses are liability insurance and gasoline, transporting and delivering harvested fruit.  

Thank you very much!
