Fruit Sale Pick Up and Delivery Process

Good Evening Parents!

We wanted to take a moment to explain the Fruit Sale Pick up and delivery process to eliminate any confusion.

First of all, thank you so much for participating in the sale and helping the band boosters with one of its biggest yearly fundraisers. Your help and volunteering is part of what makes our band so amazing. We cannot thank you enough.

If you or your student sold any fruit either in the Blitz, Personal sale or both, you and your band student are responsible for picking up the fruit from your orders that you turned in. You and your student are also responsible for delivering the fruit to your customers that ordered from you.

You can pick up your orders from the Annex on the following days:

  • Friday, December 8th from 6-8pm ( this pick up is for large orders of 20 items or more only please)
  • Saturday, December 9th from 9 am - 1 pm (Main pick up day!)
  • Tuesday, December 12th from 6-8pm (LAST CHANCE to pick up!)

When you arrive to pick up your order, park either in the District parking lot or the long parking lot to the west of the District Building. The Annex is located between the District Building and the stadium North Entrance. Come to the Annex and give us your student’s name. We will give you back your order forms and fill your order. We will have students and volunteers available to help bring items to your car if needed. Due to the perishable nature of the cheesecakes and fruit, we kindly request that you deliver the orders to your customers as soon as possible.

If for some reason you can not make any of the above pick up dates, please make alternate arrangements with Jaimie Poplin ( 1-228-217-8084 call or text).

The above dates are the ONLY dates that you will be able to pick up your orders. (Unless you’ve called to make other arrangements with us.) Due to the perishable nature of the products, limited time frame availability of the Annex, limited time frame for the freezers being used, limited availability of volunteers and holiday break schedules, we, unfortunately, cannot store orders longer than the dates listed above. Any orders not picked up will be donated to charity. We cannot stress enough the importance of coming to pick up your orders on time!

If you know of any band family or friends who do not check their email or Facebook regularly, please pass this information on to them as well. Thank you again so much for all of your help and support during this year’s fruit sale! We are so lucky to have all of you as part of our band family.

Fruit Sale Pick-Up

Dear Band Families,

The Fruit Season is finally coming to an end. We will be needing volunteers to help us with the delivery date and pick up dates. Any and all help is welcome, even if all you can manage is an hour...also the high schoolers are MORE than welcome to volunteer, too! Here are some important dates, please take note:

We have a fruit delivery date of Wednesday, December 6. We will be needing A LOT of volunteers that day from 3:30-9 pm at the annex. We will need people to help bag fruit and arrange it. The annex is located behind the Board of Education office and it is directly to the right of the football stadium. There are stairs that lead up to building from the middle school parking lot. There may also be parking at the Board of Education office.

Additionally, there are a couple of dates for fruit pick up. Due to the perishable nature of the cheesecake, it must be delivered ASAP to customers. These dates are as following:

Large order pick-ups will be on Friday, December 8th from 6-8 pm. We will also need volunteers that night from 5:30-8:30 pm to help hand out orders.

For all of those who did not have a large order, pick up will be Saturday, December 9th from 9 am to 1 pm. This is a big day and we will need A LOT of volunteers from 8:15-1:30 pm.

Finally, last chance pick up for fruit is the following Tuesday on the 12th from 6-9 pm.

If you cannot pick up any of those days, you must contact us and make another arrangement.

These will be the ONLY fruit and cheesecake pick up days. Any items not picked up after that time (and if alternate arrangements have not been made with us) will be donated to charity.

If you are aware of a fellow band family that does not check their email or Facebook, please inform them of the pick-up dates/times.

Thank you all again for all of your support in making this another successful fundraiser!!!

Call or email us with any questions you may have.
