Our drive is over. Thank you to everyone who contributed. We collected $3,750 which will go to feed those in need in our area.
We have all seen how the COVID-19 pandemic has clobbered the whole globe for the last two months, in ways that no one could have possibly imagined. For many of us, our biggest problem, so far, has been how to avoid going stir crazy. But we all know it’s not like that for everyone. Not for the medical people, the first responders, or essential services personnel. Not even for those who are working from home. And definitely not for all the people who have lost their jobs.
At this month’s Board meeting, the Board of Directors discussed ways that Santa Clara Corvettes could help in these difficult times. Because of their outstanding reputation, we have started a fundraiser with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley. Our goal for this fundraiser is $5000.
The unprecedented unemployment has driven up the demands on food banks everywhere. Second Harvest of Silicon Valley is currently serving 100,000 more people each month than they were at the beginning of the COVID-19 public health crisis. We suspect that number is still rising.
1 in 10 people in Silicon Valley receives food from Second Harvest.
A $50 donation provides 100 meals. During the month of May, donations will be matched 1 for 1 while matching funds are available – making your donation provide twice as many meals.
Donation amounts are not made public.
Your donations are made directly to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley. Amounts are tax deductible and receipts will be emailed from Second Harvest.
