The Groves Neighborhood is partnering with City of Mesa Neighborhood Outreach for a volunteer-driven citrus collection from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 23. Residents can donate the extra fruit as part of a citywide effort to benefit the United Food Bank.

If you have an abundance of grapefruit, oranges, and lemons, bring the ripe fruit in a box or sturdy container and drop it off at Mountain View Park, 845 N. Lindsay Road (enter off Adobe). Volunteers will be gathered to assist in set-up and tear-down, greet residents and help unload citrus from vehicles.

For additional drop-off opportunities or for assistance contact the United Food Bank at

For more information contact City of Mesa Neighborhood Outreach Coordinators Susan Frabotta at (480) 644-5432 or Cynthia Ezcurra-Garza at (480) 644-5889.
