Okanagan Specialty Fruits® Honors Essential Workers
SUMMERLAND, BC, CANADA - To honor the essential workers of our industry, Okanagan Specialty Fruits® (OSF) hosted an Arctic® Apple Mother’s Day giveaway. The winner, Barbara Ortega, a security guard in California who has been working on the frontlines to protect produce, will now be receiving a 12-month subscription to a monthly beauty box tailored to her preferences.
"We are very proud to honor Barbara with this prize," said Neal Carter, President, in a recent press release. "We are incredibly thankful for essential workers."
In order to enter, people had to submit photographs on Facebook using #arcticapplescontest and tagging the Arctic apples Facebook page. Barbara Ortega works as a security guard for a private security company. She protects critical units in the produce industry, such as safeguarding employees and food sources. For her, the work is rewarding because she knows how her essential role keeps others safe.
“I was really excited,” Barbara noted when she learned of her win. “My husband and I avoid going out as much as possible because we both work in essential roles and can’t afford to get sick. It will be such a treat to pamper myself at home with this prize.”
Congrats to Barbara on a well-deserved win!
