Importance of Community at Wawona
Wawona Frozen Foods is committed to giving back to its local community. In fact, going above and beyond is part of the legacy of founder Earl Smittcamp and his wife, Muriel. They made numerous donations to the greater Fresno area, providing funding to many non-profits. For example, their $2 million donation helped to create the Smittcamp Family Honors Program at Fresno State in 1998, and funded the Smittcamp Alumni House.
Current CEO Bill Smittcamp has continued his parents’ tradition of giving back. He focuses much of his giving on Valley Children’s Healthcare, where he serves as chairman of the board of trustees. Bill also serves on the board of directors of Central Valley Community Bank and CSU Fresno Foundation.
We are so proud of the work that all of our family and employees have put into this community!
