UC Components, Inc. supports Second Harvest with another $10K donation during their “season of good will” donation drive
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Morgan Hill, California, December, 2022 – UC Components, Inc. announces a corporate donation of $10,000 to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley to help build a hunger-free community during their “season of good will” donation drive.
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.
“2023 sure has started with a bang in Silicon Valley with flooding, COVID-19, and the flu creating a perfect storm. All the more reason for UC Components, Inc. to kick-off our 2023 Giving Program with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley. We look forward to making an even bigger difference this year than last. Join us!” Stated company President Rick Anderson.
UC Components, Inc. knows that this donation will help families struggling with food insecurity through the holiday season and into the New Year. They also have ongoing initiatives to continue supporting and facilitating feeding local families and helping to battle food insecurity. This new $10,000 donation will provide up to 20,000 nutritious meals for families like Diana’s:
“Diana and her husband are raising their family of five, including Kaylee (14), Keyla (7) and Kendra (2), in their one-bedroom apartment in San Jose, where they have lived for the past 10 years. When shelter-in-place orders went into effect, Diana’s husband was out of work for four months and they were unable to pay their rent. Diana began visiting a Second Harvest walk-up free grocery distribution in San Jose at the beginning of 2022 when saving money became impossible. Her husband brings home less money as a roofing contractor in the winter months due to rain, so the family also relies on CalFresh benefits and Diana’s part-time job to help them get by. Diana is grateful that her family is healthy and that they can share a home-cooked meal together.”
The COVID-19 pandemic, shelter in place orders, and rising inflation has pushed many families deeper into poverty and caused others to seek food assistance for the very first time. The continued support of the local community is critical to the success of Second Harvest’s food programs due to the fact that they anticipate the elevated and significant need for food assistance to stay steady for years to come.
