So we were sitting in front of our computers last night typing away, and we had a young man ring our door bell. Come find out it was Andrew S. from the College of Idaho Baseball team. Every year they go around selling oranges, grapefruit, and apples by the case, And every year we try to buy a couple cases. Now this isn’t some kid selling stuff so he can win a trip, it is a team effort. Each year these baseball players go put out in the cold, after school to sell these cases of fruit to collect enough funds to buy balls, bats, and other baseball equipment for the entire team. And one of the reasons why we buy it is that the fruit is real good! It also supports local athletics and local schools. This is how it all works out:
Premium Sunkist California Oranges (size 88 – approx) 20 lb per case
Sunkist Ruby Red Grapefruits (size 40 – approx) 20 lb per case
Apples ( From Symms Orchard here in the valley) You get:
- Red Delicious (20 lb approx) 36 per case
- Granny Smith (20 lb approx) 36 per case
- Fuji (20 lb approx) 36 per case
Each case is only $22 which I think is a great deal considering the quality and the dollar amount per pound when you consider this is also a fund raiser.
They will personally deliver the first week of December around Friday December 2nd or Sat 3rd. Now this is not just a Caldwell thing. They deliver to your door through out the Boise/Meridian/Nampa/Caldwell/ and a few locations near by.
Deadline to order is Nov 16th
So to order call Andrew’s cell 253-255-994 (its not local but he is here in Caldwell) and order your cases today. Make sure you tell him A Thrifty Mom.com sent you ! You may have to leave a message, cause he is in and out of class.
(and in no way are we receiving any credit or endorsement for them, we bought some too, just want to support a great local team!)
