Help With The Vision


Contra Costa Fruit Rescue in partnership with Forestr.org is a registered 501(c)(3) . As we are starting from scratch we are also asking for donations to fund the purchase of equipment such as Mr. Longarm picking poles, tarps, and long handled clippers.   Donations can be made here

Initial donations will be dedicated to the purchase of:

  • 30 Pro Picking Poles (Mr Long Arm 3208) medium duty extension poles 4-8 feet

  • 30 Fruit baskets with cushions and clamps (may need extra clamps to attach basket to pole.)

  • 10 Long Handle clippers

  • 15 Garden clippers

  • 9 Small tarps for car trunks

  • 3 Large tarps for stone fruit and apples

  • Dustpan, rake, broom for clean up

We are eager to reconnect with you and begin doing this important work again.
