Launched today, is a new, socially responsible gift giving solution that delivers delicious pear gift boxes to family and friends, and a matching donation of fresh fruit to food banks that feed hungry families.

The first of its kind, the Donate Fruit program provides a new way to give and represents a growing demand nationwide for quality gifts that give back.

“Sharing a gift that has also made an important difference in the life of another makes it even more special,” said Laura Naumes, Vice President of Naumes. “Our signature fruit gift box lets gift recipients know that their premium fruit gift has been matched pound for pound with a donation to those in need.”

Addressing hunger in America is especially critical in today’s economic climate, in which one in eight Americans are affected. Fresh and nutritious fruit is a vital component of food donated to hungry families who too often rely on processed foods that can lead to obesity and other health problems.

Naumes Inc. is one of the largest family owned and operated pear growers in the world and has been donating fresh fruit for generations. They have been the major pear grower working with Feeding America, donating almost 10 million pounds of pears and reaching people in need across the country over the past seven years.

The launch of today allows the family to offer its premium fruit directly to consumers for the first time and to expand their charitable contributions.

“We take great pride in offering a quality and nutritious gift option that our customers can feel good about,” said Mike Naumes, President of Naumes, Inc. “We lost our first orchard in the Great Depression so we understand firsthand the importance of doing our part to help others in need.”

Naumes handpicked gourmet pears are available in a variety of gift boxes and are available online. They cost $29.95 and standard shipping is free.

The service is available to anyone in the U.S. at Business customers may also call TOLL FREE at 1-877-740-PEAR (7327).
