Getting engaged right where they are: Cisco

One of our largest and longest-standing partnerships has been with the San Jose-based company Cisco, which became a Second Harvest of Silicon Valley donor in 1994. Since then, Cisco has donated over $30 million to support our goal of providing nutritious food to anyone who needs it. Cisco’s Executive Vice President, Chief Legal Officer, Chief Compliance Officer, and our board member, Mark Chandler, shared why he feels motivated to help those that are struggling:

“It’s very hard to look at what’s happening here and not realize how close it comes to home,” says Chandler. “We know all around the valley, there are thousands of people who are deeply affected and hurt by the pandemic. We made an extraordinary donation in the millions of dollars earlier this year to Second Harvest to help fund some of that need.”

On top of its monetary donations, we recognize Cisco’s real estate team, who helped us identify a location that could help us ramp up the production and distribution of more boxes of food to families in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. Thanks to the team’s help, we expanded into a new donated warehouse in April of 2020.

Chandler sums up the value of investing in the community where you live and work, and we couldn’t say it better:

“We feel a responsibility to the communities where we operate. We don’t think the fact that we’re a global organization means that that’s an excuse for not getting engaged where we are [located]. I think getting to know the needs in our communities is a way for us to exercise that responsibility. [We want] our employees feel really proud of where they work.”

We encourage any company looking for a way to engage more deeply with their community to learn more about our mission to end hunger in the Silicon Valley.
