Pacific Trellis presents donation to Tunnel to Towers Foundation
Since 9/11, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation has been helping America’s heroes by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star, fallen first responders, and veterans’ families and by building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders.
Pacific Trellis Fruit launched the initial fundraising campaign this past November in honor of Veterans Day. The company released co-branded packaging under its Dulcinea line of grapes and mandarins in retail locations across the United States. A percentage of every purchase was then donated to the foundation on behalf of the company.
“We are dedicated to supporting the Tunnel to Towers Foundation in their mission and are thankful for the opportunity we had to give back this past year,” said Howard Nager, director of marketing and business development for Pacific Trellis Fruit. “Additionally, I would also like to thank those customers who participated in the promotion, as we look forward to continuing and expanding the promotion’s timeframe for 2023.”
The company presented the check on Jan. 11 to Tiffany Burgess, Tunnel to Towers Speaker Ambassador and a Gold Star Family Home Program recipient. Attendees from the Pacific Trellis Fruit team included CEO Josh Leichter, Nager and Dan Carapella Jr., director of special projects and senior sales executive.
