To kick off Washington Wine Month, Tinte Cellars hosts a Diaper Drive throughout March. Donations are accepted at all Tinte Cellars locations throughout the state and will benefit Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest community health centers.
During the Tinte Cellars Diaper Drive, cash, diapers and baby wipes are accepted at all Tinte Cellars locations until April 1. In addition, donations are accepted online ($45 buys one case of diapers; $25 buys one case of baby wipes).
The Tinte Cellars Diaper Drive benefits Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic (YVFWC), one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest community health centers. The centers provide medical, dental, behavioral health and social services to more than 180,000 people a year–more than half of them are children.
“Farmworkers are the backbone of our industry,” says Teresa Spellman Gamble, who co-owns Tinte Cellars with her husband, Tim Gamble, in a press release. “Our annual diaper drive is another way to support the families of those who work tirelessly to put food and drink on our tables and help make Washington wines exceptional.”
Throughout the donation drive, Tinte Cellars is showcasing the art of Consuelo Soto Murphy–who grew up as a child migrant worker in the Yakima Valley with her eight siblings–at its Georgetown location. Ten percent of all Soto Art sold while on display at Tinte Cellars will also be donated to the YVFWC.
“We were enamored with Conseulo’s vibrant work and, in particular, the painting of farmworkers picking grapes which we ultimately acquired as I fell in love with it….When she told me how some of her work is hanging in the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinics, I knew she’d be the perfect artist to highlight at Tinte Georgetown during our first quarter focus with the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic and our annual diaper drive.”
With philanthropy at the heart of its mission, Tinte Cellars donates money year-round from each glass of wine poured and each bottle sold to YVFWC.
