Supporting Our Communities

Crystal Creamery has always supported the communities in which we operate. Our family and company is built on the belief that we have a responsibility to support our children, families, farms and communities to be healthy, happy and thriving.

Helping Community Soccer Thrive

We're proud of our ongoing partnership with Sacramento Republic FC, serving as a lead sponsor for their Youth Club Program, which offers private camps and clinics with top notch training and support for youth soccer organizations throughout the Central Valley. The program will help inspire and develop over 2,000 players across the region.

And of course, we'll be at Heart Health Park all season, serving Crystal ice cream to cool down Republic FC fans on those hot Sacramento match days.

Supporting Student Athletes

One of the sponsorships in which we are most proud of is our partnership with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). Since 2012, Crystal Creamery has sponsored the Sac-Joaquin Section, and beginning in the fall of 2019 we expanded the partnership to incorporate the Central and North Coast Sections. Combined, our sponsorship of the Sac-Joaquin, North Coast and Central Sections involves more than 470 high schools, their student athletes and their families.

As part of the sponsorship, we provide much needed financial support to the Section, and in a fun twist, feature the Section Championship team names and logos on the side of our milk cartons to honor the success of student athletes. Since beginning the program, more than 175 teams have been featured on the side of our milk cartons.

We’re very proud to be a long standing sponsor of CIF, and to honor the commitment these students have put forth throughout their athletic careers to become champions.

Crystal’s Favorite Pastime: Baseball

Crystal Creamery is proud to sponsor our communities’ baseball teams that bring together families and friends for good old fashioned fun. We sponsor two minor league teams in our communities: The Modesto Nuts and Sacramento River Cats. These organizations not only share our commitment to celebrating our community athletic champions, but also are committed to our youth and community.

One of our hallmark events with the Modesto Nuts is the annual Hometown Heroes Ceremony that recognizes those in the community that have shown the values of Responsibility, Excellence and Community Service. To honor those that have made a difference in the community, our recognized guests attending the game are honored pre-game with the fanfare they deserve.

Accessible Nutrition For All

At Crystal Creamery our mission is to nourish families in our community whether it is around their kitchen table, at the school cafeteria or at community food banks or pantries. Everyone deserves to have the best nutrition accessible to them, and we are committed to donate our products for consumers in need or when times are tough.

We donate multiple loads per year to food banks and always look to work with our government programs for school lunches and WIC programs to close the gap in nutrition. We recognize our communities have been in extra need this year and have ramped up our efforts to support food deprived families and essential workers affected by the Covid pandemic.

Near and Dear to Our Hearts: American Heart Association

Since 2009, Crystal Creamery has sponsored and participated in the American Heart Association’s cornerstone event in Modesto, Go Red for Women. This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives. We look forward to continuing our support for this important cause.
