The Community Service Board is pleased to announce the rescheduled Community Food Bank Harvesting Project. We will be harvesting oranges, grapefruits, and lemons in 3 orchards near Orange Grove and Oracle. The harvested fruit will be delivered to the Community Food Bank for distribution to families in need. The original date was rained out, so we have rescheduled for Saturday, April 2, from 9:00 a.m. to Noon. We realize that this is the weekend of the 1L write-on competition. Unfortunately, this was the only weekend available for the Community Food Bank. We do encourage 1Ls to take a break from writing to get some fresh air and join us! If you would like to join us, please e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu or sign up on the sheet posted in the law school lobby by Friday, March 25. Family (including children) and friends are welcome to join us!
