Tanimura & Antle donated enough produce to help fill 800 boxes for a Salvation Army holiday food and toy drive in Salinas, Calif.

Other contributors included Bakersfield, Calif.-based Grimmway Farms, which donated carrots, said Julie Clyburn, marketing project manager at Tanimura & Antle.

The 24th annual Salvation Army “Share Your Holiday” fundraiser was televised by KSBW on Dec. 10. Food and toy distribution was Dec. 18 at Tanimura & Antle’s Harris Road cooler in Salinas. The grower-shipper, which has supported the event for 12 years, also provided a refrigerated trailer to store turkeys and other foods.

Tanimura & Antle donated Artisan lettuce and red onions; Broccoflower; cilantro; and iceberg lettuce.

“Share Your Holiday” netted $88,855 in cash; 15,250 pounds of food; more than 900 turkeys; and nearly 2,000 pounds of clothes and blankets for families in need.
