November 28, 2013
Golden State Water Company, which serves Culver City, (Golden State Water) announces it will donate and distribute more than 9,000 turkeys to deserving non-profit organizations this holiday season as part of its annual Operation Gobble outreach program.
This year the company has also developed a first-of-its-kind donation event with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Ralphs/Food 4 Less.
"Golden State Water Company provides water service to more than one million Californians, so we feel it is important to give back to the communities we serve," said President and CEO Robert J. Sprowls.
"This year is the 23rd year we have participated in this annual giving event, and we are proud to have donated and distributed more than 200,000 turkeys since we started participating in this program."
According to Feeding America, a non-profit organization that combats hunger, California has more counties with children who are food-insecure than any other state .
Operation Gobble, a philanthropic partnership of Golden State Water, the California Water Association and local and state elected officials, addresses the important issue of hunger in California.
Operation Gobble, a non-denominational and non-partisan effort, has been a Golden State Water tradition since 1990.
