The Madison Music Association has launched its annual fruit sale fundraiser, which lasts through November, the group has announced.
The nonprofit supports music and arts programs in grades K-12 throughout the Madison Public Schools, and says the sale is its most important fundraiser.
Boxes of fruit may be picked up at the high school on Dec. 16, or arrangements can be made to have fruit baskets shipped. People also can place orders directly on the site for themselves.
"No matter how you order, the arts programs benefit, through the MMA," organizers said.
The association again is giving people the option to purchase boxes of oranges for donation to a number of Morris County agencies, including the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, Madison Day Care, Dover Day Care, Eric Johnson House, The Interfaith Food Pantry, Homeless Solutions, and the Front Porch and Trinity Church soup kitchen in Dover.
"Last year approximately 70 large boxes of oranges were generously donated, providing welcome nourishment to our neighbors," the association said in a news release.
