A Polk County Community Foundation grant not only supported the recent fruit fundraiser held by Polk County High School’s FFA, but also helped spread some of that fruit and a bit of holiday joy throughout the county’s elementary schools.

Funds from the PCCF grant were used to purchase fresh citrus fruit for all elementary school students. PCHS students delivered small bags of fruit to all elementary students.

Fruit used to be a popular Christmas gift for children, and the Community Foundation hopes this year’s gifts bring back memories of that tradition.
