2022 Donation Drop Off Locations

by Karen Fitzpatrick in Donations

Volunteer Drivers Needed
blue sedanVolunteer drivers are needed to help us keep our donations arriving to our recipients. We are currently in need of three drivers.
Primary drivers: Southern Lehigh Public Library on Monday afternoon and Louise Moore Park on Thursday morning.
Shared driver: Willow Haven Farm pickup on Tuesday morning.
If you do not have the time to do a weekly location, please consider being a shared driver or a substitute driver for vacations.
Just an hour or two each week, every other week, or on an as needed basis would help tremendously.
If you would like to become a volunteer driver, please contact us at info@plantarowlv.org

tomatoes on a vinePlease remember when donating tomatoes to pick them slightly before they are fully ripe, and if possible place them in card board boxes. Cereal or granola boxes can be taped at the ends, and the center cut out. This helps keep them from bruising during transport.

Thank you for all you do to help provide fresh produce and herbs to families in need.
