Large Donation of Peaches made to the Canadian Red Cross Society (26 August 1915)

1Advertisements using the war came in many forms and Jordan Harbor Peach Ranch advertised in a very patriotic way. The company stated that starting in September, they would be shipping 100,000 gallons of hospital sized cans of peaches, each containing six and a half to seven pounds of peaches, to hospitals in the British Isles, France and Belgium, distributed through the Red Cross Society. The advertisement also stated the cost for one of these large cans to be sent was 50 cents and both their company and the Canadian Red Cross Society would be accepting donations, allowing these cans to be sent overseas to feed wounded soldiers.
