Fruit Sale

 

The annual fall Fruit Sale has long been the #1 fundraising activity for many FFA chapters in America. Each year a donation per case or box of product is contributed to the Ohio FFA Foundation. The proceeds benefit special projects of the Ohio FFA Foundation and support our students. On the local level, the earned funds will allow the FFA Chapter to assist members who wish to attend our numerous FFA activities throughout the year. Some examples include: National & State Conventions, camps, judging competitions, leadership conferences, FFA social events and our annual banquet. In addition, the funds earned will allow the chapter to participate in community service projects that allow our chapter to make monetary donations throughout the year.

This year’s fruit sale took place October 13 through November 22. All members were encouraged to sell at least $250 in products to help support the many activities, community service projects and competitions that the FFA Chapter participates in. Congratulations to the top five salesman: tie for first place Callee and Cori Aviles with a combination of $1,742, third place Chloee Howard - $828, fourth place Jared Bradford - $787 and Brianna Englehart came in fifth place selling $659 worth of products. Items that were sold included a variety of citrus, apples, nuts, meat sticks, apple cider, Buff Lo dip, barbeque sauce, fruit baskets and FFA fruit buckets!

This year’s sale was quite a success. Our initial goal was to sell at least $16,000. After selling additional items after the fruit arrived, the chapter members sold a little over $17,000 worth of products. We would like to thank everyone that helped to support our chapter during our largest fundraiser of the year.
