Thanks to Our Major Sponsors and Supporters

We are indebted to Cargill Corporation and their employees for their continuing support of our activities. Through their ongoing support, literally thousands of families have been helped.

The Alameda County Firefighter’s Association is another long-term supporter of the Viola Blythe Center. We are a major benefactor of their annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast. At Thanksgiving, the firefighters collect food and funds for use by the Center. At Christmastime, they have setup toy collection drives at Newpark Mall and other locations.

The City of Newark continues to be a wonderful supporter of the Viola Blythe Center. The City provides us with a building where we distribute food and clothing and process client services. The City thought so highly of Viola Blythe and the service she provided those in need, they named the annual Volunteer of the Year Award after her.
