Thank you for spreading joy

As we close out 2020, we give thanks to you - our partners, donors, and volunteers - for showing your love for our community and for your spirit of camaraderie with families and seniors who have had a really hard year. This Friday and Saturday, over 400 households will receive holiday food boxes, a turkey, and gifts, through drive-through events and deliveries in Calistoga and St. Helena. Your generosity has helped to raise $40,000 along with in-kind donations, making this year's Holiday Assistance Program a wonderful success - and bringing joy to our neighbors.

Not to be deterred by COVID restrictions, this year's Holiday Assistance Program has been a genuine community-driven effort - needed more than ever due to the economic harm caused by the pandemic and recent wildfires. We are deeply grateful to our donors and partners for making this year's program possible: Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, CANV Food Bank, S.H. Cowell Foundation, St. Helena Catholic Church, CalMart, St. Helena Fire Department, Grace Episcopal Church, Calistoga Community Chest, St. Helena Montessori School, Bodega Shipping Company, Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD), Calistoga Chamber of Commerce, G&L Seiberlich Co. LLP, Calistoga Rental Homes LLC, Lawer Estates, Smiths St. Helena Pharmacy, RLS Middle School, Elmshaven Seventh Day Adventist Church, and many individual donors and volunteers.
