Donations were collected for Toys for Tots during Livermore Valley Wine Community’s Annual Holidays in the Vineyards Event
Livermore, CA, December 20, 2023– For the 37th year, Livermore Valley Wine Community and Pacific States Petroleum partnered for a Toys for Tots drive during the annual Holidays in the Vineyards event. During the two-day event on December 2 and 3, 2023, 595 toys and $2,400 in cash donations were collected at the Livermore Valley wineries for Toys for Tots. Pacific State Petroleum matched the toy and cash donations made by patrons and the wineries, resulting in a total of over 1,190 toys and $4,800 to purchase additional toys. All the toys will go to a local collection done by the U.S. Marines and will be passed out to the children in the community.
“Holidays in the Vineyards is truly a tradition that is dear to locals and travelers from across the region. Year after year, the event brings the community together to celebrate and support children across the Bay Area,” said Brandi Lombardi, Executive Director for the Livermore Valley Wine Community. “We are proud to partner with Pacific States Petroleum once again for the Toys for Tots drive and are grateful to all of those who donated toys and cash gifts. This generosity will bring joy to many children this holiday season.”
“Pacific States Petroleum has a longstanding partnership with the Livermore Valley Wine Community and is thrilled to partner with them on the annual Toys for Tots toy drive,” said Jason Edwards, General Manager, Propane, for Pacific States Petroleum, Inc. “Our purpose with Toys for Tots is to make a direct impact within our community by providing a toy to local children that would otherwise not have a present. We’re happy that more children will have a smile on their face this holiday season.”
The partnership between Livermore Valley Wine Community and Pacific States Petroleum, Inc. goes beyond the holiday season and is an important relationship that builds partnership and camaraderie with business owners, wine growers, families and friends of the community in which they work and live.
