SELMA – California Water Service has partnered with local nonprofits this holiday season to donate a total of $11,000 through its Operation Gobble program.

Selma’s Salvation Army, S.M.A.R.T. Center, Selma Cancer Support and Selma Cares were the recipients of the donations.

California Water Selma District Manager Steve Johnson said that Operation Gobble donations come from the utility’s philanthropic giving program, not from water rates.

“We work hard to be a good neighbor and provide donations throughout the year. Operation Gobble provides us with a chance to assist families that are struggling during the holiday season,” Johnson said. “By partnering with local organizations, we can more effectively reach and impact those who need assistance in our communities.”

Cal Water serves about 6,300 service connections in Selma and about 2 million people through 480,300 service connections in the state. The utility has provided water service in the area since 1962.
