Fruitland woman raising funds with produce stand to help family affected by ALS

FRUITLAND, Md. – A local woman is donating proceeds from her produce stand to help the owner of Mogan’s Oyster House after he was diagnosed with ALS. “No pricing on anything. Everything is just whatever you’d like to donate, and all of the money is going to the family,” said Deborah Ritterson.

Ritterson says Baywater Farms donated produce to help get the stand going. She says that 100% of the proceeds from the stand are going to Denny Mogan and his family. “We’re hoping for a little bit here and there. People always love produce. If you are in the area, you can stop by and put couple bucks in and get some great produce,” said Ritterson.

Ritterson says that if you’d like to stop by – you can visit the stand at her home on Hayward Avenue in Fruitland. “I’d love to keep it going all through the summer – perhaps early fall. I myself am a big gardener. So I’ve been growing a bunch of ornamental gourds for the fall holidays,” said Ritterson.

Ritterson also says that there’s a Facebook page set up by another community member to donate money called “Mogan Strong” If you’d like to donate produce – you can reach Ritterson on Facebook as well. “We just really want to lift up this family and give them as much as we can,” said Ritterson.
