To accommodate the anticipated volunteer shortfall and still gather as much citrus from the homeowners where we previously were able to provide volunteer gleaning services, we will be partnering with two churches to host Citrus Saturday drop offs. We will have St. Mary’s Food Bank staff and trucks ready to accept your donations at the following locations on Saturdays from 9:00am – 3:00pm on February 6, 13, 20 and 27:
o Desert Garden United Church of Christ: 18818 N 128th Ave, Sun City West, AZ 85375

Your citrus is important to us and we appreciate your donations. We hope you will participate in our new collection strategy by dropping off your citrus when we are in your area. Please endeavor to bring clean fruits void of leaves, stems, decay, etc., when dropping off your fruits.
Please drop off only within the period designated when the truck and staff of St Mary’s Food Bank will be present. Thank you for your understanding
