Harvest for Hope

Thank you again to our Nellie Gail Ranch homeowners and Tennis Center Members for your generosity during the Harvest for Hope Food Drive. This past Wednesday’s final collection day provided for a strong finish. While the food drive may be over we do remain interested and willing to assist in harvesting fruit from trees that are producing more than your family can use. Rather than allowing excess fruit to go to waste, please remember you can always reach out to us to harvest and distribute.  At some point in the future when conditions allow we would also like to host a Framers Market to share what we grow here in Nellie Gail Ranch.  Meanwhile, please save and use the following link if you have excess fruit that can go to a good cause:

Summer is on its way, and our Nellie Gail Ranch fruit trees are heavy with fruit and ripe for the picking!! Let’s put our excess fruit and vegetables to a good purpose and donate these to families less fortunate.

Nellie Gail Ranch has launched Harvest for Hope. A weekly food drive to benefit the patrons of Family Assistance Ministries in San Clemente. In addition to the citrus from our trees and any excess vegetable crops you may have, FAM is also in need of:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Fruit
  • Rice & Pasta
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Shelf Stable Liquids
  • Feminine Products
  • Baby Wipes
  • Paper Towels
  • Toiletries
  • Empty Egg Cartons

If you are unable to pick and drop off your food and need assistance, please click HERE to fill out our assistance form. One of our volunteers will coordinate a day and time to assist you.


In compliance with the Governor’s directive regarding large gatherings, we have postponed the first concert in the Summer Concert Series.
