For Valley residents with bountiful citrus fruit on their yard trees and some time to spare today, consider picking some bags and taking them to one of four locations to donate them to a good cause. The 5th Annual Citrus Sunday is Councilman Greig Smith’s volunteer fruit drive to pick tens of thousands of pounds of fresh citrus fruit which is distributed by partner organization Valley Interfaith Council (VIC) to struggling San Fernando Valley families at VIC’s food banks. No sign up is necessary. Just pick the citrus fruit from your trees, wash them, tie them shut in plastic bags, and drop them off at one of these locations between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.: Northridge: Fire Station 87, 10124 Balboa Blvd. (1 block south of Devonshire St.); Chatsworth: Chatsworth Depot Metrolink Station, 10046 Old Depot Plaza Rd. (1 block west of Canoga Ave.); Granada Hills: Fire Station 18, 12050 Balboa Blvd. (at Knollwood Country Club); West Hills: Field’s Market, 23221 Saticoy St. (cross street Woodlake Ave.)
