Announcing the 2016 Springfield Rotary Club Citrus Sale
The Rotary Citrus Drive is our club's major fundraiser supporting the important charitable contributions of the Springfield Rotary Foundation. We have donated well over $2,000,000 to charities since we began selling fresh citrus from Florida. Our fruit grower assures us the highest quality, freshest fruit at the best prices available. Fresh oranges and grapefruit make perfect holiday gifts.
Our fruit is processed the day it is picked and shipped by refrigerated truck for arrival in early December, from the tree to our customers in less than a week. Premium quality navel oranges and red grapefruit are rarely available in central Illinois grocery stores. Rotary citrus is weeks fresher, larger, heavier, and sweeter. We would appreciate your orders. You can order directly from our website or contact any member of our club to place an order.
Our partnership with the Central Illinois Food Bank continues for a third year! For many years Rotary has donated all excess fruit to the Food Bank. We are again expanding the Rotary program that will allow for citrus orders to be donated directly to the Central Illinois Food Bank. Your donation will provide an increased amount of fruit for distribution to those in need. Last year over 6,0000 pounds of fresh fruit were donated to the Food Bank. In addition, last year our Rotary Foundation granted $18,700 from our citrus sale proceeds to local charities that serve our community.
