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.”

Джоан и Алан впервые столкнулись со Second Harvest, работая волонтерами на одном из корпоративных мероприятий Алана. Они были впечатлены тем, сколько питательной еды будет предоставлено на каждый собранный доллар.

В 1993 году они сделали свое первое пожертвование и на следующие 30 лет стали преданными донорами. Когда пришло время подумать об оставлении наследства, казалось логичным включить завещание от их поместья, назвав Second Harvest значительным бенефициаром.

“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
