JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery today announced $100,000 in awards through the JUSTIN Community Grants program. Twenty organizations will receive $5,000 each to support initiatives in the North San Luis Obispo County region that include youth programs, social services, and community investments.

The organizations receiving grants this year were selected by a committee of employees who volunteer annually to identify worthy organizations that provide projects and services that directly benefit the local community.
“JUSTIN is committed to ensuring that North County remains a vibrant and thriving region,” said Clarence Chia, senior vice president of marketing for JUSTIN. “We are thrilled to be supporting these fantastic organizations and the vital work they do to better our community.”
