“One of our largest expenses each year is fuel and truck maintenance, so this sponsorship from Tesoro is especially appreciated,” said Patti Larson, executive director of Food Finders. The 24-foot truck is driven all around Los Angeles, including downtown, to pick up the large pallets of donated produce and food that generally get delivered to some of the larger agencies and missions that Food Finders serves. Sponsor logos are placed on either side of the truck for maximum exposure.
Food Finders had previously partnered with Tesoro for a special awareness presentation to its Safety Council, where contractors and employees within the refinery business were invited. The Safety Council held its own food drive on-site during the summer to assist in the food program and encourage employees to get involved in helping the local community. The food went to agencies in the South Bay area. Tesoro employees also contributed to the Holiday Food Drive.
“Tesoro is a proud sponsor of Food Finders, a local nonprofit organization that relies heavily on volunteers’ time and disposition,” said Olga Chavez, Tesoro public-relations associate. “Tesoro values the service Food Finders does to better the nutrition and well-being of our citizens.”
