MARICELA, CLIENT AND VOLUNTEER
Maricela is up at 5:30 a.m. every day to cook for her husband, who is an essential worker, and care for her eight-year-old son. While Maricela can’t work outside the house full-time due to her seizures, helping her son with remote learning and maintaining the house is a full-time job.
And in addition to that, Maricela makes time to volunteering at Second Harvest of Silicon Valley’s distributions, something she’s been committed to supporting for the last 20 years.
Maricela loves having her son Alberto at home with her all day and he enjoys being at home too. The nutritious food she receives from Second Harvest helps keep him alert and engaged with his classes. Maricela says receiving food from Second Harvest is a great blessing.
