Peaches are Right on Schedule!

June 28, 2007 - Posted at 9:15 a.m. CST

Jonesboro, AR - Never fear the peaches are here! With the Easter freeze, millions of crops were destroyed, leaving many peach farmers in the pits. But the Annual Peach Drive here in Jonesboro is right on schedule.

It's the 14th year for the peach drive with all the proceeds going to help the Jonesboro Church Health Center. The center provides medical services to the working uninsured. Mary Kay Jones is the Chairman of the fundraiser and says it gets more successful every year.

"It really is a great fundraiser. When we started they sold about 200 boxes of peaches, this year we sold a record of 658 boxes. It just gets better every year!"

And of course if you didn't get your peaches this year you can get on the mailing list for next year. Just call 935-6032.
