Wed. February 2nd, 2022 - by Anne Allen

OXNARD, CA - The month of February is incomplete without delicious, high-quality strawberries for shoppers to gift their Valentines, or enjoy for themselves. As it kicks off the strawberry season in California, Bobalu Berries is taking its efforts one step further, participating in volunteer initiatives and demonstrating its commitment to its communities.

Spotlighted for admirable volunteer initiatives, the company’s Vice President of Sales Anthony Gallino made the front page of the Monterey Herald for his work behind the scenes to help those in need. As explained in a press release, Gallino has been volunteering for years to support the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, which is responsible for staging the annual AT&T Pro-Am Golf Tournament in Pebble Beach every year to raise money for non-profit organizations. He has also recruited several friends and other staff to join in and support the worthy cause.

As it kicks off the strawberry season in California, Bobalu Berries is reflecting on numerous volunteer efforts to support its communities and those in need, including the AT&T Pro-Am Golf Tournament as well as a can-tree decorating event in downtown Oxnard

The Bobalu staff maintains a high commitment to volunteering to support those in need. In addition to Gallino’s efforts, Annette Baietti, Controller, organized the staff last month to support Ventura County Foodshare, a member of Feeding America. The participating staff competed in a holiday can-tree decorating event in downtown Oxnard and collected canned goods from family and friends to support the community.

This year, the berry supplier also commemorated its 60th anniversary, launching an annual scholarship program that supports the community and the future of ag.

We here at ANUK applaud the Bobalu team for its numerous efforts to give back and support those in need across the communities it serves. We can’t wait to see what influential initiatives the company has in store for 2022!
