EUGENE, Ore. -- Emerald Empire Kiwanis Club held their 27th annual Fresh Berry Distribution Day on Thursday.
About 780 orders of strawberries were made by residents across western Oregon.
The strawberries came in buckets of 15 and 30 pounds, costing $32 and $49.
Fresh Berry Distribution Day is the club's only fundraiser. They have another berry sale in September.
The proceeds from each sale are distributed amongst the community and many different programs such as Food For Lane County, the Metropolitan Choral Festival and Mount Pisgah Hayride.
"Strawberries and berries we don't get much of because it's a very perishable product, and so that's what makes this really special, that we can put through to our meal sites or our pantries," said Dawn Marie Woodward with Food For Lane County.
Each year, they raise up to $20,000.
