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.”

Joan과 Alan은 Alan의 기업 행사 중 하나에서 자원 봉사를 하던 중 Second Harvest를 처음 만났습니다. 그들은 모금된 1달러마다 얼마나 많은 영양가 있는 음식이 제공될 것인지에 깊은 인상을 받았습니다.

그들은 1993년에 첫 기부를 했고 이후 30년 동안 헌신적인 기부자가 되었습니다. 유산을 남기는 것에 대해 생각할 때가 왔을 때 Second Harvest를 중요한 수혜자로 명명하는 유산을 포함시키는 것이 논리적으로 보였습니다.

“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
