About The 4-H Fruit Fundraiser
The 4-H Fruit Fundraiser is an annual program operated by the Northwest Discovery Lab (NWDL) in association with the respective 4-H councils in Jefferson, Clallam, and Kitsap counties. The fundraiser helps to support youth programs on the Olympic & Kitsap Peninsulas.
Each year volunteers from 3 counties work to process orders, transport and distribute tons of Washington grown USDA certified organic fruit, twice. Once in July, and again in August.
The NWDL has been operating the fundraiser since 2017.
