fundraising coordinator needed!
It’s our annual Fall Fruit Fundraiser! Florida Indian River Groves out of Vero Beach, Florida is the leading provider of fresh fruit for fundraising to organizations such as ours. This is one of the best opportunities for you to earn funds towards your student's account and the Spring Trip!
The SBBA is looking for someone to assist with this fundraiser. The ideal coordinator would be hands-on and great at creating hype and getting everyone involved to ensure success! Our Communications Chairperson, Tracy, will assist with online communications (making requested updates to our website and sending email reminders and hype emails).
What you will do:
Distribute packets to students Sept. 24 (they will be given to you in advance).
Collect all orders from students (deadline Oct. 22)
Place an order with Florida Indian River Groves (Oct. 26)
The natural harvest time for fruit in south Florida starts the first week in November. By placing all orders by October 26th we’re guaranteed the freshest produce upon delivery.
Schedule and work with FL Indian River Groves to schedule delivery of fruit (most likely will be Nov. 15, 6:00 - 9:00 pm)
You will need to organize some volunteers during this time to inventory entire order, separate, and distribute each order to students.

HOW IT WORKS
There are two ways for customers to place an order:
Students can take direct orders, pick up their fruit orders on the delivery date, and deliver personally to their customers.
Students can reach out to friends and family that aren't local, send them an online order link, and collect online orders that will be shipped directly to the customer, giving the student credit for that order.
A wide array of products will be available to purchase: oranges, grapefruits, apples, pears and more! There are even gift packages. It makes an ideal Thanksgiving house-warming present or gift to those living far away.
