UC Components, Inc. supports Second Harvest with a $10K donation to help build a hunger-free community
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Morgan Hill, California, September, 2022 – UC Components, Inc. announces a corporate donation of $10,000 to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley to help them “take a slice out of hunger” and help build a hunger-free community.
UC Components, Inc. is committed to doing its part for the communities they work in and around and from which they draw their employees. Second Harvest of Silicon Valley was chosen as one of several local and national institutions for this year’s UC Components, Inc. Corporate Giving Initiative due to their direct contributions to the greater Silicon Valley area and their vital food insecurity work.
“It is a proud moment for the UC Components family to make a difference to families facing food insecurity in and around our own Silicon Valley. This donation is merely the first step in what we anticipate to be an ongoing relationship with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, including volunteering this holiday season.” Stated company President Rick Anderson.
UC Components, Inc. knows that this donation will help immediately. They also have ongoing initiatives to continue supporting and facilitating feeding local families and helping to battle food insecurity.
Even before COVID-19, Second Harvest was responding to a level of food insecurity in Silicon Valley that indicated there was already a crisis, providing groceries to a record number of clients every month. The economic crisis created by the pandemic has pushed many families deeper into poverty and caused others to seek food assistance for the very first time. They now serve an average of 450,000 people every month, an 80% increase over pre-pandemic levels.
Since these counties were ordered to shelter in place, Second Harvest has been on the frontline every day, making sure that anyone who needs nutritious food can get it. As they have seen the need for food assistance explode, they have also had to quickly overhaul their operations to implement social distancing protocols that keep their clients, volunteers, and staff safe, while dramatically increasing their food distribution.
The continued support of the local community is critical because they anticipate the elevated and significant need for food assistance to stay steady for years to come.
