Legacy donors Alan Feinberg and his wife Joan Weber are motivated to give back to the community. When they relocated from Boston to the Bay Area in 1990 and learned how many people — especially families with children — were struggling with food insecurity, they were appalled. “No one should have to do without a nutritious meal, especially in a wealthy area like Silicon Valley.”
They were especially concerned that so many children struggled to get by without adequate nutrition. “I remember sitting down for a home cooked meal with my family every night,” said Alan. “I took it for granted.”
Joan e Alan incontrarono per la prima volta Second Harvest mentre facevano volontariato in uno degli eventi aziendali di Alan. Sono rimasti colpiti dalla quantità di cibo nutriente che sarebbe stato fornito per ogni dollaro raccolto.
Nel 1993 hanno fatto la loro prima donazione e nei successivi 30 anni sono diventati donatori devoti. Quando è arrivato il momento di pensare a lasciare un'eredità, sembrava logico includere un lascito dalla loro tenuta nominando Second Harvest come un beneficiario significativo.
“We don’t have any children of our own. We want to ensure that children in the future have the same access to healthy food as we did when we were growing up. Leaving a legacy is our way of providing for multiple generations of kids.” – Joan, Second Harvest of Silicon Valley legacy donor
