December 28, 2023 WENATCHEE, Wash – The greatest gifts of all this holiday season is the gift of giving to those in need. Stemilt BB #:113654 got to work shopping, wrapping and presenting gifts for an 11th year to donate to foster children in the Wenatchee valley.

This year, Stemilt provided gifts for 110 children in the Chelan and Douglas counties under the care of the Washington State Department of Children, Youth and Family Services.
