Pineapple Sales – Aug 1-12, 2018
Fresh pineapples will be in Iowa for the 41st Annual Pineapple Sale for Camp Courageous in the first few weeks of August. The pineapples will be on sale at over 25 Hy-Vee Stores in Bettendorf, Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, Clinton, Coralville, Davenport, Dubuque, Iowa City, Marion, and Waterloo.
Most locations will have the ability to core and place the pineapple in a container for the customer. A dollar from the sale of each pineapple will go to benefit Camp Courageous, a year-round respite and recreational facility, serving over 8,000 individuals with special needs annually. Customers not interested in pineapple, are encouraged to buy a gift card for food and send it to camp.
