Help support BETC, while treating yourself to delicious, healthy oranges and grapefruits. This fundraiser will be run in November, December and February. We hope you will treat yourself to fruit, and also share this opportunity to support BETC with your friends and family.
The fruit comes in 20 lb. boxes (2/5 bushel) which contain 28-40 oranges or 14-20 grapefruit (dependent upon size & sizes will vary by box). In November and December, the oranges are big navels, incredibly good for juice, and sweet pink grapefruit. In February the oranges are temples with a couple of seeds and a skin easy for peeling, great for eating, but good for juice as well, plus the same large, sweet and juicy pink grapefruit.
The fruit is literally picked two days before arriving by refrigerated truck. The quality simply doesn’t compare to store-bought fruit. Our pricing is comparable to supermarket prices and far cheaper than the gift box catalogue pricing.
Cost - $28 per box. Orders can be for any of the following:
- Full boxes of oranges or grapefruits,
- Full boxes mixed half and half, or
- Half boxes of oranges or grapefruits.
How It Works
You contact friends and family, and let them know that you have fresh-picked oranges and grapefruits to sell. A sample email to notify potential fruit buyers of what we are doing and how to respond is in the flyer linked at the bottom of the page. Your friends order from you and you pass those orders on to us. Help us raise funds for the temple general fund in an easy way by offering this great opportunity to your friends.
