VCJACL’s Julia Miyamoto delivered the strawberries, which were grown by specialty farmer Jason Tamai of Tamai Family Farms in Oxnard, Calif.

Hospital personnel received the berries and quickly distributed them to its 325 employees. Staff were impressed, surprised and commented enthusiastically on the berries’ very sweet flavor.

One wrote, “It is heart warming to see and experience all the support and generosity and the community coming together in this difficult time.”
