E. & J. Gallo Winery Donates $100,000 to help Victims in the Philippines

From all reports the situation in the Philippines is dire. The category 5 storm Typhoon Haiyan hit the area on Friday, November 8th causing  a massive lack of food, water, housing and sanitary conditions. Whenever tragedy occurs, it can be daunting whether it happens to one person, a family, or thousands of people.

According to a press release this week, E. & J. Gallo Winery has contributed $100,000 to the Philippine Typhoon Relief Fund. “On behalf of our employees and their families, we are making this donation to help the rescue effort and to provide aid and comfort to the victims of this terrible disaster,” said Joseph Gallo, chief executive officer and president of the E. & J. Gallo Winery.  “This disaster strikes close to home as we have valued relationships with distributors, retailers and consumers who live in the Philippines and have suffered losses.”

Congratulations to Gallo Winery and anyone who has helped whether by contributing food, resources, or money to those who are in need.

If you are a wine-related business that has contributed even in a small way to help those who have lost their families, homes, food, and much more please add what you have done below. No amount is too small!

Cheers! Kathy
