(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) For anyone still looking for that perfect holiday gift, the St. Joseph Lions Club may have the answer.

On Friday, the club kicked-off their annual fruit fundraiser event. This is the second big fundraiser the group does yearly.

The club is selling everything from red, green and yellow apples, to fresh grape fruit and oranges. Produce can be bought individually or as a basket.

"We have fruit baskets that are already made up, it's a combination of fruit," Jerry Vanvickle, Lions CLub president, said. "They make excellent Christmas presents."

The club will be out at the St. Joseph Library East Hill's Branch parking lot until December 23rd, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

All of the proceeds go towards helping the Lions Club with their optical research, and eye care services they provide for those in need.
