CORVALLIS, Ore. -- After days of high water, three businesses along Highway 34 are recovering.
East of Corvallis a fruit stand was ravaged by floodwaters, but now the community is coming together to help the business bounce back.
Jim's Fruit Stand has been a staple on the highway for decades, but the spring flooding caused serious damage to it according to Balinda Johnson, a friend of the owner and former employee. Johnson said the owner, who is 78 years old, lived on the property in an RV and had to be evacuated.
She said the floodwaters hit just as the fruit stand opened up for the season and much of the produce washed away and was contaminated.
The family has set up a GoFundMe page. To donate, click here.
