Fruit & Nut Information

Now it's time to plan for receipt and distribution of all the fruit that's coming our way in just 2 weeks.  As you might guess, things will be a little different this year.  

We're cooperating with the Cary High School Band to receive delivery at one location in order to minimize costs for both bands.  

We will meet the semi truck in the parking lot at Cary High, transfer our fruit to our small band truck and transport it to the Dewey's store to unload there on Friday, December 11th.  

Pick up of student orders will take place on Saturday, December 12th.  

In order to make pick up day as safe and efficient as possible with minimal disruption to permanent businesses, it is important that you adhere to the following pickup instructions.


  • All order pickups will take place in the parking lot in the upper level of Waverly Place.
  • You must sign up for a 30 minute pickup window. 
  • Please do NOT enter the Dewey's store.
  • Please arrive during your 30 minute time slot and park in or near Curbside Pick Up Zone C (first parking row in front of Mod Pizza).  
  • Tell the volunteer in the parking lot that you've arrived for fruit pickup or text "Fruit" and your name to 919-749-8411.  
  • Volunteers will bring your order(s) to your car.  You will be asked to verify your order and sign for it before you leave.  
  • You will be provided a list of your customers and their contact information with your order. 

We will need some help with the loading and unloading both at Cary High School and at the Dewey's store on Friday morning.  Additional help is needed to take orders to cars on Saturday.  

In order to reduce contact, we will not use volunteers for sorting the orders this year.


Use this signup link both for helping and for selecting your order pickup window.  If you are helping, you do not need to sign up for a pick up window.  You may take your order with you when you leave.


Please select your pickup window by Wednesday, December 9th so we may plan better.  Thanks in advance for helping us make pickup day run smoothly.  

If you have any questions, please email fruit@athensdriveband.com  Do not reply to this email.
