Arson at the Local Fruit Stand

Donations Are Encouraged to Assist in Rebuilding

Posted: 6/26/2015

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - On the night of Thursday, June 18th, the neighborhood fruit stand at Winding Way and Hackberry Lane was torched along with the van they use to transport some of the produce. A witness saw a white car pull up and three males jumped out, doused the stand with gasoline, and set it on fire.

The good news is that they are open again as of the morning of Friday, June 19th. They are currently using tables under the trees next to their garden and had many young volunteers helping them.

Unfortunately, their insurance does not cover the rebuilding of the fruit stand because it is considered an open air market. Neighbors are encouraged to stop by and offer support by purchasing the wonderful produce and donating toward the rebuilding of this small community business.
