ST. GEORGE — Fabulous Fuji apples, right off the trees in Santaquin, Utah, are going to again be available through the Washington County Children’s Justice Center in time for the holidays as part of the center’s eighth annual “Apple Fundraiser.”
The Washington County Children’s Center advises those interested to plan now to get these fresh, crisp 2016 apples for family members, friends, coworkers or just for yourself. Price is $39 for a 40 pound box – less than 98 cents per pound.
Those who purchase the apples will be provided with ideas for using them including recipes, canning tips and information on the health benefits of making apples a regular part of your diet.
Orders can be placed beginning immediately by contacting the center at 435-634-1134 or via their website. Orders must be prepaid via check, cash or credit/debit card. As in previous years, there will again be a limited number of boxes. Once the apples are gone, they are gone for the year.
According to a press release from the Washington County Children’s Justice Center, the Apple Fundraiser is one of the center’s top fundraisers that enables them to continue serving children and families who are experiencing the crisis and chaos that comes with the disclosure of significant physical or sexual abuse and other crimes involving children, such as domestic violence.
The Washington County Children’s Justice Center is one of 20 such homelike facilities across Utah. The center is designed to help children feel safe and comfortable so they may begin to deal with the difficult and often frightening issues that surround abuse.
