Stemilt marks a decade of giving holiday gifts to foster children
One of Stemilt’s favorite days of the year is the day each present donated by the Stemilt family finds a new home to a foster child in need. This year marks the 10th that Stemilt has participated in donating gifts to foster children in the Wenatchee Valley.
The company provided gifts for 131 children in the Chelan and Douglas counties this year under the care of the Washington State Department of Youth and Family Services and K Connections.
“I am always so humbled and thankful for the generosity of our Stemilters and a special thanks to the Stemilt Community Investment Committee for wrapping every gift beautifully,” said Stemilt President West Mathison. “Being in the room and seeing all these gifts knowing that each one would bring a child great joy — it is overwhelming.”
