Thanks for a bountiful harvest

From page A6 | January 22, 2013 |

On Sunday, Jan. 13, Village Harvest Davis did a harvest of approximately 100 orange trees in Winters.

We were able to pick 5,600-plus pounds of oranges, which will go to agencies that will feed the hungry in Yolo County. This could not have been done without an incredible amount of work by more than 90 volunteers and the wonderful cooperation of the homeowner.

We would like to express a great deal of thanks to homeowners Brian and Kathy Gilpin of Winters. They very generously allowed us to come and harvest the oranges on their property and provided a lot of help in getting the harvest done.

And secondly, a big thanks to all the volunteers. There were too many to mention in this letter, but many of them represent organizations on the UC Davis campus, such as Alpha Phi Omega, Sigma Omicron Pi, Sigma Kappa Rho, the Campus Rotaract Club of Davis, the UCD Circle K (and several other Circle K’s from other colleges and universities) and other campus organizations.

In addition, there were a lot of individuals who gave up their time on a very cold Sunday morning to accomplish this feat. So to all of you, a very big thank you.

To say “We couldn’t have done it without you” is an enormous understatement. Village Harvest Davis is now in its fourth year of existence, and it is through the efforts of those mentioned above (and many others) that we have been able to pick more than 130,000 pounds of fruit to feed the hungry of Yolo County. So to all of you, an enormous thank you!
