Northgate González Market Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month Honoring Business and Community Leaders

The owners of Northgate González Market launched “JUNTOS” a campaign to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by honoring community and business leaders and donating $40,000 to nonprofits in Southern California.  

The newly created JUNTOS Award salutes outstanding leaders who uplift the Hispanic community through their humanitarian and philanthropic contributions.

“It is through these trying times we realize just how much our communities are in need. Many people are out of work and struggling just to put food on the table,” said Oscar González, co-president of Northgate González Market. “For the past 40 years, our company has worked side-by-side with the community giving back whenever possible. These honorees inspire and remind us nothing is impossible if we all work together – JUNTOS.”
