Napa Valley Vintners Give Grant for Farmworker Housing Facilities
1/27/2006 - The Board of Directors of Auction Napa Valley (ANV) approved a grant for $26,000 to provide 120 new beds for the Calistoga and Mondavi Farmworker Camps. The new beds, part of a comprehensive upgrading of the two facilities, will allow the sleeping rooms to be converted from bunk bed-configured accommodations housing anywhere from three to six people, to two-person accommodations with two beds per room.
Sue Dee Shank, executive director of Napa Valley Community Housing (NVCH) said: "After working a hard day in the fields the weary farmworkers can now sleep comfortably in solid beds. We sincerely thank the Vintner's Association on behalf of the farmworkers." The grant to NVCH comes from the 2005 ANV funds.
ANV is the granddaddy of America's charity wine auctions and has raised over $62 million over its first twenty five years for healthcare, at-risk youth services and low income housing.
Now in our seventh decade, the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) noon-profit trade association is the sole organization responsible for promoting and protecting the Napa Valley Appellation as a winegrowing region second to none in the world. Respect for our history reinforces our commitment to the preservation and enhancement of the Valley's land, wine, and community for future generations. We address the shared interests of our more than 270 members and aspire to be the essential organization for all Napa Valley vintners.
