Orchard Rite recently announced that it will match donations to the Washington Apple Education Foundation with its Donate A Bin fundraiser.
Donors make cash donations to the foundation representing approximate values of actual bins of fruit.
The total amount collected, plus the match, will be announced Dec. 3 during the Washington State Horticultural Association annual meeting in Yakima.
The Washington Apple Education Foundation, the charitable arm of the tree fruit industry, has provided more than $2.5 million to college-bound students and to programs supporting academic success since the foundation was created in 1994.
Never miss a local story.
Donations must be made by Nov. 22 to be eligible for the match. Donations can be made online at www.waef.org under the Donate A Bin link or by calling the WAEF office at 509-663-7713. Orchard Rite will match the first $5,000 given.
