“It’s the most important sale for the MMA. It helps us support our program for the students and promote the music and arts in the public schools,” said Elizabeth Ferranti, of the MMA.

“In the previous years we’ve had a good response to our fruit sale," she added . "We are hoping to continue with the tradition."

In past years the MMAs fruit sale fundraiser has funded grants and allowed for the purchase of over a hundred musician posture chairs.

"Funds have also been used as seed money to reinstate the Madison Junior School fall play. As well, the MMA has advocated for the ongoing Madison High School auditorium renovation in collaboration with the Madison Board of Education," said Ferranti.

Fruit can also be ordered to donate to those in need during the holiday season. For seven years the MMA has added this option, donating to local Morris County agencies.

Fruit pick up will be at Madison High School on Dec. 14.
