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.”
Unang nakatagpo nina Joan at Alan ang Second Harvest habang nagboboluntaryo sa isa sa mga corporate event ni Alan. Sila ay humanga sa kung gaano karaming masustansyang pagkain ang ibibigay sa bawat dolyar na itataas.
Noong 1993 ginawa nila ang kanilang unang donasyon at naging tapat na donor sa susunod na 30 taon. Nang dumating ang oras upang isipin ang tungkol sa pag-iiwan ng isang legacy, tila makatuwirang isama ang isang pamana mula sa kanilang ari-arian na pinangalanan ang Second Harvest bilang isang makabuluhang benepisyaryo.
“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
