WineDirect's Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.
As a company, it’s important to us not only to invest in our employees and our clients’ success, but in our entire community - both near and far.
To start, in the wake of the devastating fires in Northern California, we made a $30,000 donation to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund, and through our matching offer generated more than $60,000. These funds will go directly to helping our friends and neighbors recover and rebuild.
In addition, we have partnered with WorldReader, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating illiteracy by creating unprecedented access to free digital books around the globe. By sponsoring the Al-Waleed School in Accra, Ghana, we provided 100 e-readers with over 10,000 books to 250 primary school students. Reading fosters critical thinking, increases empathy and provides opportunities enabling entire families to break the cycle of poverty.
