Our Virtual Food Drive has been going so well we’ve upped our goal to $6,000. SHFB donation matching ends April 15. One of our members will match new donations up to $1000 until May 15!
For several years, Santa Clara Corvettes has donated to Second Harvest Food Bank to assist in supporting their programs that provide food to members of our community that are in need. This year Second Harvest is the first recipient of our club charity program.
In these difficult times, Second Harvest is providing 500,000 people with the groceries they need. This is double the meals that were provided prior to the pandemic. Second Harvest is also currently delivering 5,500 meals to the individuals who are not able to make it to the distribution sites.
In response, SCC we will launch a Virtual Food Bank Drive for Second Harvest which will run from March 1st to May 15th. Donations made until April 15 will be eligible to be matched.
Our goal for this drive is $3500 by May 15th. Hopefully, we will not only meet, but far exceed this goal, to assist Second Harvest in doing their remarkable work. Your gift of any size provides a nutritious mix of fresh produce, protein, and pantry items so that local families can enjoy delicious, comforting meals together. Each $1 given will provide enough food for 2 meals.
We will be also organizing a SCC member work group to assist in one of Second Harvest’s programs, all COVID precautions will be taken. Look for further information on this exciting opportunity to help in this very worthwhile program, and as a benefit, have the chance to see each other and work together.
Donations are tax-deductible. SCC points will be awarded for donations and for participation in the work group(s).
