FRUIT AND NUT

The Fruit and Nut (FAN) sale is one of our most important fundraisers and theproceeds help offset MJDS’ general operating expenses. Parents raised more than $68,000 during the 2013-14 school year and more than $2 million since FAN’s inception. FAN was started by a parent who wanted to offer a way for every MJDS family to contribute to the welfare of the school regardless of their financial circumstances. This school-wide effort teaches our children that all of us have a responsibility to support MJDS.

Our signature malted milk balls are our most popular item, with English Toffee running a close second. These high quality candies and nuts make great gifts. Another way to support MJDS through FAN is to sell the donation item. This delicious, nutritious trail mix is a great alternative to purchasing candy. The trail mix is delivered directly to the Hunger Task Force and the Jewish Community Pantry. Individuals who choose this option should include their address on the order form to receive a tax deduction letter from the food pantry. In the last five years, we have donated more than 7,000 bags of trail mix. Last year, our trail mix was included in hundreds of Thanksgiving boxes for families in Milwaukee.
