Anaheim, California-based Northgate González Market delivered turkey vouchers, food and cash donations to more than 5,500 families this holiday season.
“The upcoming holidays are a time for families to come together around the dinner table to share a warm meal, laughter, and love,” said Oscar González, Northgate Market co-president. “We want to thank our community partners, Hyundai and Oportun and others, who joined us to make this holiday season a little bit brighter for many families.”
A tradition started many years ago by the González family, Northgate Market coordinated turkey and food giveaways at community events in Huntington Park, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Ana, Paramount and other cities.
“Hyundai is committed to making progress for humanity, and this begins with basic human needs like food and nutrition,” said Brandon Ramirez, director, corporate social responsibility and external relations, Hyundai Motor America.
“By partnering with Northgate Gonzalez Market to provide holiday vouchers, Hyundai is advancing this guiding principle to improve the communities we live and work in.”
Some of the organizations receiving the turkey vouchers included New Beginning Community Ministries, Healing Urban Barrios, S.T.E.A.M. High School, Jefferson Elementary School, Love Riverside and the Families Together of Orange County San Gabriel Mission Food Pantry.
“We know that the cost of inflation and the economic strains that many families are facing this holiday season, every little bit of assistance can make a big difference,” said Ezra Garrett, SVP of public affairs and impact at Oportun.
“We are proud to once again collaborate with Northgate Market to help more than 700 families throughout Southern California have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.”
Michael Batti, Kellogg’s manager of team sales, said, “The Gonzalez family and Northgate Market’s share the same values established by our founder WK Kellogg. At Kellogg, we are encouraged to live our founder’s values, by feeding people in need, being good community stewards and embracing equity, diversity and inclusion. Northgate Market’s holiday giving program aligns with what Kellogg’s embodies every day.”
