The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation (FWF) participated in a brand-new end of year giving program in December, distributing 250 Copperfield's Books gift cards to farmworkers and their families. The program was made possible by the Wells Fargo Foundation, long- time supporters of the FWF.
“The Wells Fargo Foundation is committed to supporting our community, especially during these difficult times. This grant is a small token of our appreciation for the essential role farmworkers have played in keeping our economy going,” said Denise Miles, senior vice president, Wells Fargo Social Impact & Sustainability. “We are proud to collaborate with the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation to do something special for the children of farmworkers.”
The gift cards were used as tokens of gratitude following a year of unexpected events, affecting many within Napa County’s agricultural community; parents and children used their cards to purchase books, games, and stuffed animals during the holidays.
“The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation’s December giving program was an opportunity to thank the hardworking farmworker community,” said Jill Durfee, Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation program manager. “Sharing gift cards to a local bookstore aligned with our mission to support and promote farmworkers through education.”
