Operation Gobble Helps Feed Local Families
Golden State Water Company Contributes Funding for Thanksgiving Meal
San Dimas, Calif. – Today, Golden State Water Company (Golden State Water) announced that the company has contributed funding to feed local families in need as part of its annual Operation Gobble outreach program.
“Golden State employees are pleased to support Operation Gobble, a Thanksgiving tradition that has a measurable impact on members of our community with limited resources,” said Ronald Moore, Golden State Water’s Operation Gobble project leader. “The need for this program has never been greater. We are thankful that we can partner with local food banks and non-profit organizations so that families and friends can gather together to give thanks over a warm and nutritious meal.”
Operation Gobble has been a Golden State Water tradition since 1990. Over the last 30 years, the program has funded more than 280,000 turkeys. This Thanksgiving Holiday, Operation has been working in partnership with cities, non-profits, food banks and faith-based organizations to feed over 10,000 families throughout Golden State Water’s service areas.
“The rising cost of living is making it harder for families to make ends meet,” said Mike Wallace of the Rotary Club of San Dimas. “Golden State Water’s donation will have a measurable impact on families wishing to celebrate their blessings by sharing a traditional Thanksgiving meal with family and friends.”
