MEDINA – Medina High School’s FFA chapter is rolling out their annual Citrus Sale virtually this year.

FFA advisor and teacher Todd Eick said that due to Covid protocols the sale is being held a little differently this year.

FFA advisor and teacher Todd Eick and Zach Fike, Medina FFA president, are pushing for a successful fundraiser for the FFA.

“This year we have a very limited online only selection,” explains Mr. Eick.  “We didn’t want to completely get rid of it and the company we always use gave us this option, so we took advantage of it. Now instead of coming to the school to pick up your order, it will be shipped directly to our customers’ house.”

Mr. Eick says it has opened up options to serve family, friends and supporters across the country.

“We have people buying from as far away as Alabama and far east of us as Schenectady,” Eick said. “We also have a lot of support from our local area with more than half our sales. We are so grateful to everyone who is helping us raise money for our FFA. It means a lot to us.”

For all of those who have ordered before and enjoyed the alpaca goodies, Mr. Eick and his students have been hard at work making them.

“We are going to hold a live Facebook raffle for a one of a kind gift basket for everyone who has bought from our sale,” said Mr. Eick.  “We want to thank everyone for their support.”
