BARSTOW, Calif. – Golden State Water Company (Golden State Water) was pleased to partner with Catholic Charities and Holiday Meals to distribute turkeys this holiday season to local nonprofit organizations in the Barstow region that serve families and individuals with limited resources through its annual Operation Gobble outreach program
Operation Gobble is a philanthropic partnership between Golden State Water, the California Water Association and local and state elected officials. This year, Golden State Water employees distributed more than 8,000 turkeys to local community-based organizations, churches, food banks, senior centers and other nonprofits in the communities it serves.
“Holiday memories are built around a warm meal with loved ones,” said Perry Dahlstrom, Mountain-Desert General Manager for Golden State Water. “Golden State Water appreciates the opportunity to partner with local elected leaders and community organizations to deliver Thanksgiving turkeys to those in our community who need them most.”
Operation Gobble has been a Golden State Water tradition since 1990. Over the last 29 years, Golden State Water has donated more than 240,500 turkeys through the program.
“Operation Gobble is an important holiday tradition for all of our employees,” said Ronald Moore, Golden State Water’s Operation Gobble project leader. “We take great pride in serving more than 80 communities in California, and that service extends far beyond the water we deliver to homes. It’s also about giving back.”
