Country Applefest prides itself on being able to give back to the community not only by the influx of patrons to the festival bringing attention to Lebanon,  the local non-profit groups that make money at their booths during the festival, but also our yearly donations to local good causes!

Our primary recipients for our donations are the Lebanon Food Pantry and providing local nursing home residents that no longer have family with Christmas gifts to open on Christmas when otherwise they might not.  We also on occasion will help out an individual cause that we feel represents our community.
